Shaunda was born on August 29, 1971 at the Fort Riley Military Base in Kansas. She lived in several states following her father’s military career to Arizona, Alabama, and Colorado, eventually settling with her parents and siblings in 1979 in Provo, Utah.

Shaunda graduated with honors from Pleasant Grove High school in 1989. It was here where she first became and enjoyed being a cheerleader. Her love of cheering continued to develop and flourish in her college experience where she became a cheerleader for SUSC (now SUU) at Cedar City.

Shaunda graduated from Southern Utah University in 1994 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics Magna Cum Laude, furthering her education and graduating with her teaching degree in 1996.

Shaunda fell in love and married Jeremy Trimmer from Cedar City, Utah on August 17, 1995. They had one daughter, Hunter Riley Trimmer.

Shaunda started teaching AP Calculus and other advanced classes at Skyline High School in 2002 and went on to receive her Master’s Degree in Teaching in 2006. Her passion and love of cheerleading lead her to applying and becoming the Cheer Coach for Skyline High School, winning national recognition for several years while under her direction. Cheering was a passion that she enjoyed passing on to the youngest of budding little cheerleaders. Shaunda was a consummate teacher in every area of her life. She enjoyed giving others the tools of success. This sharing of her time and resources impacted so many lives as a teacher, friend, coach, and mentor.

Shaunda had a true love of animals. That love gave her and those around her many hours of joy holding and playing with little fur balls of kittens or puppies that she fostered until they were big enough to go to loving homes. Many, many hours of bottle feedings at all hours of the day and night were a common occurrence. Her nieces and nephews adored her loud and vibrant energy, loved driving with her anywhere as the music would be blaring as she danced behind the wheel.

Shaunda will be missed by so many. She leaves a trail of beautiful memories and continues to teach us all in her untimely departure.

Shaunda leaves behind her daughter Hunter Riley Trimmer; father Daniel Rowen Brown; stepmother Jean Brown; and sisters Danette (Shaun) Mayne and Rianne (Joey) Hargrove. She was preceded in death by her mother Stephanie Harding Brown.
