Patricia Althea (Allie) Shontell, daughter of Thelma Shontell, was born on March 19, 1959 and passed over on March 16, 2013. Althea is survived by loving family members and treasured friends. She is an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved the grandeur of tall trees in a forest; and the simplicity of a single leaf. She saw beauty in the petal of a flower and God’s creations everywhere. She always stopped to smell the roses. She was an accomplished seamstress, quilter, and artist in the venues of sculpting and painting. She also found beauty in JoAnn’s, Michael’s and Walmart!
