She grew up there and graduated from Pelican Rapids High School in 1974 and went on to earn a degree from the University of Minnesota Technical College in Crookston and a BA teaching degree from Metropolitan State College in Denver.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Shalene Thompson; brother-in-law, Dave Golden; and sister Shelly Poehls.
Shanda was good at everything and especially enjoyed her family and friends. In her youth she played basketball, volleyball, swam like crazy, worked as a river guide on the Crow Wing River, worked as a ranch hand, worked and taught at risk youth, and in her spare time, taught blind people to ski. She taught physical education until her kids showed up. Then she would substitute teach so she was able to spend time raising them. Shanda always loved to dance. More recently her hobbies included wood carving, ice skating, sewing, playing with the hula hoops, spending time with her grandkids and preparing for the new one to get here. She also loved to laugh. She was incredibly full of life and a bright spot that dimmed way too soon.
Please join us in celebrating her life and friendships on Friday October 28, 2022 from 5pm until 9pm at The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park, 26624 North Turkey Creek Road, Evergreen, CO 80439.
