Shannon Marie Quick loved watching her two boys play sports.

“She was totally dedicated to her sons,” said her younger brother, Jeremy Soulek, of Stillwater. “She was there no matter when they played a game. She wouldn't even miss the late games.”

Her sons, Jackson, 8, and Tanner, 13, were her world. They were with her when the April 20 tornado destroyed their house as they hid in a closet with her mother, Joy Waldroop, 61.

Joy Waldroop and Jackson were injured in tornado.

“I couldn't ask for a better daughter. She cared for her family,” Waldroop said.

Shannon Quick, 40, had to get up at 4 a.m. each day to be at work at the Lowe's Home Improvement in Moore. She was a pricing coordinator, but had worked at one time as a human resources manager for Lowe's.

“She would do anything and everything. She always did more than was expected of her,” Soulek said.

“She won over everyone with her sweet demeanor,” he said. “She was friends to all.”

She was an avid photographer who shared her pictures with her husband, Michael E. Quick — whom she married Aug. 19, 1995 — and with other family members and friends.

Friends called her kind, friendly and loving.
