Shawn Marie Harper (Soden), age 48, of Comfort, WV; passed away on April 21, 2022 due to medical complications. Shawn was born in Somerville, NJ on June 20, 1973, grew up in Piscataway, NJ, and resided in New Jersey City, NJ, until moving to Comfort, WV in 1997. She was preceded in death by her parents; Genevieve Soden of Comfort, WV, Clifford Soden, FL, brother; Sean Soden, FL, and former husband, Tommy Harper of Kirbyton, WV. She is survived by her children; Aryka Soden of Comfort, WV, Tommy and Raegan Harper of Joe’s Creek, WV, granddaughter; Ashlynn Hedger of Comfort, WV; sisters; Cheri (Michael) Noyes of Senora, CA, Brandy Soden, FL, brother; Cliff Soden, FL, and a host of nieces and nephews. Shawn wasn’t perfect, but she was always the first to tell you that about herself. She was always thinking out loud. If you were in her presence, you can guarantee she was telling you about whatever her current situation was in life at the time. Her stories were often about chaotic, and, more than likely, avoidable events, and she never stopped talking… but she made us laugh. Shawn was always herself, and for that, she will be missed dearly. She wished to be cremated. A celebration of life event will be announced and held at a later date, open to all who wish to attend.
