Shianne “Shi” Taylor Soles, age 19, was violently taken from this world on May 4, 2019. She was born and raised in Spokane, Washington. From the day she was born, she was a bright light that would flood the room wherever she went. As a young girl she spent many years involved in dance – she loved music and to express herself and entertain others. She danced in everything that she did in life, and she did it with grace.
Shianne loved to blast music in the car and sing along with the lyrics. She loved taking pictures and seeing the beauty of life through a lens while bringing it out in others. She was always active. Besides her years in dance, middle school and high school years she also participated in basketball, volleyball, cross country, track, DECA, and cheerleading. She loved being a part of a team and encouraging others to do their best. She loved her job working at Home Goods. She loved road trips and cheering on Husky football. Most of all, she loved to laugh. She had a passion for life, and the desire to be a part of something bigger.
