Shawna's favorite thing about living in her hometown is watching her children grow up with the same traditions as she did as a child, and being a part of a community where everyone comes together in times of need, good or bad.
She enjoys serving on the Littlefield Chamber of Commerce Board, because the importance of small businesses is very important to her, having parents who own and operate one here in Littlefield, and owning one herself.
Shawna Wagley was born and raised in Littlefiled, and attended Littlefield Schools all 12 years. She graduated with the class of 1996. After graduation, she attended South Plains College in Levelland, and then earned her Associate of Applied Sciences degree in Mortuary Sciences from Amarillo College.
She has been a licensed funeral director and embalmer since 2003. After working in Lubbock for several years, she felt a need to return to Littlefield to serve families in her hometown, providing them with compassionate care during their hardest times. In 2007, the opportunity arose, and partnering with her former classmate and friend, Sam Billinglesey, Hillcrest Funeral Home was established."
Shawna has two sons, Stetson and Rody, who both attended Littlefield High School. She is a member of the First United Methodist Church in Littlefield. In her spare time, she spends time with her family, travels, does a lot of photography, reading, scrapbooking, and distance running.
In addition to daily operations at the funeral home, Shawna is very active in her community, with the Littlefield Early Risers Lions Club, serves on boards for:
Littlefield Celebration Committee
Littlefield Ex-Students Association
New Horizons Emmaus Community
She has just completed a multiple-year term on the Panhandle Funeral Directors Association's board of directors, and stays current on all industry updates, and newest products, and regularly attends continuing education classes and conventions.
