Austin, Texas | Age 70


Janice Shanahan, age 70 of Austin, Texas passed away on July 18, 2015 after a short illness. Janice was born on May 6, 1945 in Elkton, Maryland and lived most of her life in Chesapeake City, Maryland.
Janice spent the majority of her life in the Maryland/Delaware area and grew up on the north side of Chesapeake City on Biddle Street until moving to the south side on Bethel Road in the 1960's. In 1969, she married, Ken Guthrie and soon after had their son, Brian.
In 1986, she remarried to Terry Shanahan where they lived together on Bethel Road in Chesapeake City, Maryland. Following the death of her beloved husband, Janice moved to Austin, Texas in 1998 in order to be closer to her family.
Janice loved animals of all shapes and sizes and was always ready to feed strays that happened by her house or stop traffic to save a turtle from getting run over.
Janice is survived by her son, Brian Guthrie, his wife Melissa, and three grandchildren of whom she was intensely proud: Ian Guthrie, age 13, and twins Keira and Shannon Guthrie, age 8.
