Shana L. Terschluse

October 21, 1996 ~ August 1, 2020 (age 23)


Shana L. Terschluse, 23 , of Washington, passed away on August 1, 2020.

Shana, daughter of Steven Terschluse and Victoria NEE Manhart, was born October 21, 1996 in Washington. She received her education from Our Lady of Lourdes Grade School and  St. Francis Borgia High School. Shana was a Hospice Caregiver for Season's Hospice St. Louis. Shana was a free spirit who lived life to the fullest. She loved to go hiking, traveling, horseback riding, and anything to do with the outdoors. We have wonderful happy memories of so many family vacations every year in Mexico. She was a loving and caring caregiver to all her patients, and the love of her life was her little girl Addison who is just as beautiful and loving like her mother. Shana is loved by many and as a hospice nurse she was able to do her job in gratitude whatever the day brought. She walked in her faith and her love of God everyday. She was getting ready to start the nursing program at Four Rivers Career Center. We decided in memory of her beautiful loving nurturing spirit to start the Shana Terschluse Memorial Scholarship Fund at Four Rivers Career Center, so she can go on to help others fulfill their dream of nursing for years to come . We will take donations at the Celebration of Life for Shana at the Knights of Columbus hall, from 3-6pm  after mass on Saturday, August 8th, 2020, at 1 P.M.  Donations can be sent to Four Rivers in her name. All donations will go towards awarding future nursing scholarships. Shana was also an organ donor so she will continue to help other people, where otherwise had no hope.


She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, John and Bertha Manhart; paternal grandparents, Sylvester and Elizabeth Terschluse, and uncle, Michael Terschluse.

Among her survivors are her parents, Steven and Victoria Terschluse of Washington; daughter, Addison Otten of Washington; sister, Stephanie Ballmann and husband Geoffrey of Marthasville; significant other, Todd Hellmann of Washington; Addison's father, Nick Otten; uncles and aunts, John and Sue Manhart of Labadie, Garry and Elizabeth Manhart of Washington, Jeff and Cheryl Terschluse of St. Clair, and Erna Terschluse Washington;  nephew, Austin Ballmann; cousins, Brett and Matt Terschluse, Chris Manhart, Jason Manhart, Aimee Maune and husband Adam, Amanda Kiefer and husband John, and Jamie Cook and husband Ben; other relatives and  many many friends.
