Shawn Cuddeback

Shawn Cuddeback, age 59, died at her home in Greensboro, GA surrounded by loved ones on May 8, 2016 after a battle with breast cancer. Shawn was born on March 2, 1957 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Always adventurous, Shawn backpacked in Europe, went to college in Switzerland and crewed for the author Stuart Woods on a transatlantic boat trip. She served in the Air Force reserves, earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Lucerne Switzerland and a Bachelor of Science from Georgia State University. Shawn spent her career as a clinical research monitor.

On August 28, 1986 she married the love of her life, Bob, in Atlanta, GA. They enjoyed movies, scuba diving, fly fishing, boating and traveling. Shawn was an avid photographer and used her talents on the many trips they took with friends as well as on a medical mission for Alliance for Smiles in Bangladesh. She loved animals and together they had numerous pets, but she was especially fond of horses. She began to ride as a very young girl and retained a fondness for horses throughout her life.

Thirteen years ago she and her husband moved to Lake Oconee. Their beautiful home was often filled with love and laughter with family and friends. Shawn was loved dearly by all. She was preceded in death by her parents, Rhea Maxine (Lancaster) and James Doyne Crouch and her older sister Pamela Ann Krause. She is survived by her husband Bob, step-children Rob Cuddeback of Atlanta, Ga and Meghan Cuddeback Cofer of Denver Co., grandsons Jim and Jack, sister Lisa Williamson of Tallahassee, Fl., brother & sister-in-laws Bill and Mary Cuddeback of Binghamton, NY and many loved nieces, nephews and friends.

A celebration of her life will be held Sunday, May 15, 2016 at 1:30 p.m. at the Reynolds Plantation Point Pavilion, 3313 Linger Longer Rd.

Sure wish we could have taken that horse ride we talked about. Hope the horses in heaven have wings.

A good friend will come bail you out of jail. A great friend will be there with you saying "Girl, that was crazy fun!" Shawn was a GREAT friend for many years. Shawn showed such grace and bravery when she told me she had cancer. She still had that adorable sense of humor. When the waitress complimented her on her hair, Shawn offered to let her borrow it. I am so happy that I had the privilege of knowing Shawn and being great friends for a time. To Bob and family, my deepest sympathy.

My sweet Shawnie - your smile would always light up the room and the white light in heaven is now brighter. I will always love you and miss you! Thanks to you and your extraordinary travel agent talents, we saw places we would never have seen. We made some wonderful memories together. Do they have martinis in heaven? We will all do our best to take care of Bob for you. Sending you big hugs...

Shawn sparkled. May she continue to sparkle in your memory, Bob. Dot and I share your grief, but we know that does not reduce yours.

I first met Shawn when Candie wilson asked if she could bring a good friend to the mountains on a annual girl trip. Shawn fit right in and we had a blast. Laughter,horse back riding and shopping and spa day. She will be missed and I pray God gives you strength Bob. Shawn is smiling in heaven on you and you will always have your own guardian angel.
