Shauna Wood Trabert
1930 ~ 2019
Shauna Wood Trabert passed away of natural causes on February 16, 2019 surrounded by her family. She touched many lives in her 88 years and will be greatly missed and remembered by all.
Shauna was the eldest child of Boyden "Brick" Wood and Adeline "Mimi" Wood. Born September 20, 1930 in Salt Lake City, she lived with her parents and brother, Roger, until 1953. She graduated from the University of Utah in 1952 with a BA in Health and Physical Education and was a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority.
During her college years, Shauna was the Days of 47 Queen, Miss Utah and a contestant in the 1953 Miss Universe Pageant. As Miss Utah she and her attendants were invited to a tennis tournament at the Salt Lake Tennis Club, where she was introduced to the #1 tennis player in the US, the man who would become her future husband, Tony Trabert.
She married Tony in 1953, and traveled extensively while he played tennis tournaments as one of the top players eventually becoming #1 in the world. Son, Mike was born in 1956 and daughter Brooke in 1958. In 1960 they moved to Paris, France where Tony ran the European tour and Shauna was a top model at Chanel. Working directly with Coco Chanel, collections were built on Shauna and she appeared in numerous magazines, including Vogue and Elle.
Later divorced, she met and married Karl Honeystein and they lived in both Los Angeles and Palm Springs, CA. Karl was an executive in the film production and movie industries. They enjoyed traveling the world, dining in fine restaurants, and sharing their love of music and the arts.
Shauna was a master tease with a sharp wit and was always upbeat and positive. She could bring a smile to anyone and she connected with people and friends of all ages in many places.
Shauna is survived by her children Mike (Dinny), Brooke Trabert Dabkowski, brother Roger Wood, step daughter Gail Honeystein Tucker (Eric), and six much loved grandchildren, Brittany Trabert Dennett (Mike), Warner Trabert (Charlsie), Anthony Trabert, Megan Trabert Earl (Espen), Delaney Dabkowski, Brick Dabkowski, three great grandchildren and one step grandchild.
We sincerely thank the compassionate caregivers at The Ridge Senior Living and Brighton/Bristol Hospice for their wonderful care.
A private Celebration of Life will be held in late March. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Linda Derrick Wood Endowed Scholarship in the College of Nursing at University of Utah or Brighton/Bristol Hospice, Salt Lake City.

She was a very accomplished woman. I introduced her to my daughter at the last class reunion. I wanted my daughter to know she was named after Shauna.
