Moorehead, Dr. Shannon (Kaub)
Dr. Shannon (Kaub) Moorehead was born on April 14, 1972 in Janesville, Wisconsin and died unexpectedly in Phoenix, Arizona on March 8, 2012. Her parents are Lowell and Sandra (Scott) Kaub. After graduating from Parker High School in 1990, Shannon attended the University of Wisconsin and then the University of Wisconsin Medical School. Shannon married Lewis Moorehead of Wisconsin Dells on July 15, 1995. Shannon is survived by her parents, husband Lewis, and children Joshua, Ethan, and Jacob, sister Heather (Matthew) Moeller and niece and nephew Jillian and Jake Moeller. In her professional life, Shannon was a doctor in the deepest sense. She was not only exceptionally skilled and competent but she cared about her patients and healed them. She was considerate and compassionate and touched the lives of countless mothers and babies. Shannon loved babies and worked with all her strength and skill to protect them, keep them healthy, and make them safe. She was a respected leader in her profession and will be terribly missed by her colleagues, patients, and the many babies that she delivered. In her personal life, Shannon will be remembered by her family and friends for her unconditional love and compassion for others. She had an amazingly wonderful heart that touched the lives of so many. She was taken from all of us far too early and will be greatly missed and always remembered. We love you mommy!
