Shawn Leigh Hartnett, 59, of Tempe AZ, lost her 2nd battle against cancer on August 12, 2022. She was at Banner Gateway Medical Center in Gilbert, AZ. She was born to Robert and Joan (Rist) Hartnett on May 6, 1963. She graduated high school in Montezuma, KS in 1982. Her greatest accomplishment was the birth of her amazing son, Nathan S. Hartnett in November of 1983. Shawn resided in Tempe, AZ with her beloved and wonderful sister, LeAnn Hartnett. She was a true Dallas Cowboy fan and enjoyed rooting on the Kansas Jayhawks. She enjoyed going to Car Shows, shopping, and spending time with family and friends. She is survived by her son, Nathan S. Hartnett, his wife, Amandria Hartnett, and their daughter, Addison Hartnett, of Turpin, OK. Her sister, Jodi LeAnn Hartnett, of Tempe, AZ. Daughter Brandi Abel, her husband Jason Abel, and their daughters, MaHaley, Nevaeh, and Piper Abel, of Springhill, MO, and many beloved family members.

She is preceded in death by her parents Robert and Joan Hartnett, and her Uncle, Jerry Hartnett. A celebration of life will be held in Tempe, AZ, Liberal, KS, and Ottawa, KS. Dates and places will be announced later on through social media. In Lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made to the cancer foundation so more research can be put into finding a cure for ALL types of cancer.

  • Sorry for your loss Nathan and LeAnn. She was a sweet lady and loved her family. Peace to you.

  • She was one of the sweetest and most loving women I know. She loved her family very much. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Shawn and I went to high school together and we had lots of giggles and fun times. I’m close friends with her Aunt Karen and so we’ve seen each other through the years with family events and high school reunions. The world has lost a kind person. Rest in Peace.
