LaShonda Cruckson

LaShonda Dorothy Cruckson was a
beautiful soul who could light up any room. She was always the one with the
biggest brightest smile looking to lighten anyone’s mood. She was passionate
about protecting her family and friends and if she loved you she would defend
you until the end. She had a wonderful sense of humor and could have the entire
room rolling with laughter. She was an amazing artist and spent much of her
free times sketching and creating collages.


In her short 38 years on this
earth, she was able to travel to more countries than most can dream of.
Backpacking her way through Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and the Cook
Islands to name a few. She was a free spirit who had a deep love for animals,
traveling, the outdoors, boating, camping, horseback riding, and every so often
just jumping on a Harley.  She was also
an avid hunter and loved to go up north hunting with her family.

La Shonda passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, May 31, 2020 and the world is a
little less bright. To say that she will be deeply missed by all that had the
privilege to know her is an understatement.


She is survived by her two
children, Mason and Milonda and her stepdaughter, Elissa, whom she loved with
all of her being; her mother and father, Lynn and Victor Surita of Fond du Lac;
her father, James and his wife, Lori Cruckson of Sarasota, FL; her younger
brother, Frank Cruckson of Mesa, AZ; as well as countless other relations and
friends.  She was preceded in death by
her daughter, Frankie Lynn; her beloved brother, James M. Cruckson; her
grandparents, Frank and Dorothy Eggers; and grandmother, Vivian Cruckson.

has taken place and private family services will be held.
