Our beautiful daughter, ShyAnn Marie Matkin, born July 2, 1983, in Idaho, passed away in Colorado on Dec. 6, 2015. In 2004, ShyAnn traveled to Florida on a college internship and made Florida her home. She worked at Macaroni Grill, Mimi’s Café and Bank of America.

ShyAnn graduated in New Mexico and sang “I Hope You Dance” at her graduation. As a blossoming young girl she was involved in dance, clogging, singing, theater and rodeo and was vice president of her Junior Class. She was the light of our lives and always wore a smile, had a heart for Jesus and truth, even through her darkest days. ShyAnn loved her family and friends, and especially her beloved dog, Angel.

A memorial will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at First Baptist Church of Winter Garden, 125 E. Plant St. A reception will follow at Winter Garden Pizza Company.
