Shawn Marie Obradovich

d. April 24, 2024

Boiling Springs, SC

Shawn Marie Obradovich (Shamali), passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday evening, April 24, 2024, after a short, but fierce illness. Shawn is survived by her loving husband, Kris Obradovich.  She is the beloved daughter of Susan & Moh’d (Mo) Shamali, cherished sister to Jenin Shamali.  Loved and adored always by her two nephews and niece, Blake, Brett, and Breslyn. Aunt Shawn was always eager to see them as often as she could.

Shawn was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She was a thinker and achiever from the get-go, mastering everything she came across, except math! She graduated from Grand Rapids Community College after finishing high school with an associate degree in computer science.

Shawn attended the University of South Carolina where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resources, Hotel and Restaurant Mgmt. She was inducted into the Alpha Sigma Lambda for Interdisciplinary Studies, Arts and Sciences and awarded Outstanding Student.  She was a member of the International Honor Society in Social Sciences, Pi Gamma Mu, and elected to the SC Mu chapter located at USC Upstate.   Shawn was inducted into the Sigma Chi Upsilon Chapter. Shawn was praised on stage at graduation for her thesis advocating for underprivileged women throughout the world to empower themselves to be equal to all aspects of life.

Shawn moved up to the position of General Manager for Sodexo Food Services at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind where she ensured 150 meals for daily and campus students from Pre-K through High School, three nutritious meals a day. Shawn was fluent in American Sign Language and a favorite of the students.

She was raised by two self-driven parents who instilled within Shawn the ethics of hard work and love of family.  Her story of life will be shared by all who knew her. Shawn will be missed for her smile, her strength of character, her fierce love of family and friends.  

The family will receive friends Wednesday, May 1, 2024, from 5:00 pm to 5:45 pm with a Memorial Service to follow at 6:00 pm at Floyd’s Boiling Springs Chapel, 4161 Hwy 9 North, Boiling Springs, SC 29316.
