Shvonne was a social butterfly and had the pleasure of attending Franklin, Nathan Hale and Ballard High Schools. In 1999 with the assistance of her parents, Shvonne completed her high school journey and went on to have a successful career as one of the best bartenders in South Seattle. Shvonne was known for always having a smile on her face and for making a mean drink. She was a very welcoming and outgoing soul so working with people was a natural fit.
Shvonne made her home in the southwest Seattle community of Burien, WA. In 2000 Shvonne had the honor and privilege to give birth to her daughter Kyesha Lashay Lindsey. Kyesha was Shvonne’s greatest accomplishment in life and she loved to let everyone know that she was the apple of her eye. Shvonne was committed to providing Kyesha with the unconditional love she was blessed to receive from her parents and she took parenting of her daughter as the most critical piece of her day.
In 2006 Shvonne met her second love – Anthony Wheaton, Sr.
