Raeshaunda L'Annette Elliott

October 22, 1990 — May 16, 2023

West Bountiful, UT

Raeshaunda L’Annette Elliott (“Shaunda”, “Rae”, “Shaundabug”, “Rae Rae”, “Calypso Darling”) passed away unexpectedly on May 16, 2023, at 12:09 a.m. at the age of 32, after suffering a heart attack. Raeshaunda was preceded in death by her father, Ronald Allen Elliott. Raeshaunda is survived by her daughter, Annabelle (Tingey), her sister, Danikah (Elliott), her stepfather, Bill (Tingey), her grandmother, Linda (Butler), her stepmom, Jeri (Elliott), her uncle Ron (Butler) and family, and her mother Billiejo (Tingey). Raeshaunda is also survived by countless aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, ‘adopted’ siblings and her boyfriend, Jordan Smiley.

Raeshaunda was born October 22, 1990, in Kansas City Missouri to Ronald and Billiejo Elliott. Raeshaunda and her parents moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in February 1991. She was such a daddy’s girl. She loved going to his softball games and dancing to loud music with him. Raeshaunda grew up in Salt Lake City until 2007, when she moved to Bountiful with her mom, sister, and stepdad. Raeshaunda attended Bountiful High School and graduated in 2009. She went on to earn her associate degree in Medical Assisting in 2011. 11 days after graduating college, she gave birth to Annabelle Sophia Katherine Elliott (Tingey) in Bountiful, Utah.

Raeshaunda got her first job at the ripe old age of 12 delivering newspapers. Raeshaunda worked hard as a teenager at Millie’s and Jimmy John’s then she decided to work in customer service as a “grown up”. She worked for a several years at Teleperformance in Salt Lake City. After facing many struggles with mental health and addiction, Raeshaunda moved to American Fork and lived at the God House. Raeshaunda developed friendships and a solid foundation of recovery. She worked at Mylar Disability Law Firm in American Fork, where she stayed for the next several years. Raeshaunda moved back to the Davis County area in 2018 to have a fresh start closer to home. She worked customer service again for the next few years and developed many more friends. Raeshaunda was always a hard worker.

In 2020, COVID hit, her place of work closed. Raeshaunda struggled for the next several months trying to find and maintain employment. The struggles with mental health and addiction soon took over her life, again. Raeshaunda fought hard and was successful again and again. When I saw her on Saturday at her rehab, she was vibrant, healthy, happy, and full of hope. She had on the cutest salmon colored dress and gave me the biggest hug. We last spoke a few hours before her passing and our last words to each other were “I love you”, for which I am profoundly thankful.

Shaunda loved her family and friends fiercely and with great passion. She will be remembered for her love, light and laughter. She lit up any room she walked into. She had a contagious laugh and made the people she was around feel better. She had a heart of gold and cared deeply for her family and friends. She had to have her nails done and her music up loud! She lived life at full speed.

Fly high and sing with the angels, baby girl. Until we meet again.
