Shawana Monike Alford, age 35, of 54 Trudeau Road, Saranac Lake, died Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake.
Born in Brooklyn, New York on July 22, 1978, she was the daughter of Pearley Alford.
In 2008 Shawana moved to the Adirondacks to be close to friends. Once she was here she found much joy in the open sky's for basking in the sun on warm summer days and beautiful scenery. She could often be found taking pictures and scrap booking. Shawana was a member of Saranac Lakes Adirondack Baptist Church as well as the library. Her true love in life was music. She had an eclectic taste and unique song of her own. Shawana was a calm soul, a true breath of fresh air. She will be greatly missed by many.
