Meet Elizabeth Shamblin Hannah, Gwen Shamblin Daughter
Elizabeth Shamblin Hannah was born to parents, Gwen Shamblin and David Shamblin. She was one of the two children (the other being Michael) blessed from Gwen’s first marriage.
Sadly, though her parents were both involved with Remnant Fellowship, according to a member of the church, David “definitely did not represent everything Gwen said was right and rigorous.” So, the two eventually drifted apart and Gwen went on to fall in love with actor Joe Lara, known for playing Tarzan in the 1990s TV series.
Thus, Elizabeth’s parents got a divorce and Gwen went on to marry Joe in 2018.
At the time, Joe already had one child, a daughter, with his ex-girlfriend Natasha Pavlovich, The Way Down actress.
Unfortunately, Elizabeth’s mother, Joe, her husband, and four other church members were killed in a private plane crash on May 29, 2021. The group of seven was flying on a Cessna Citation 501 jet from Tennessee’s Smyrna Airport towards Palm Beach, Florida when they crashed into Percy Priest Lake.
Allegedly, Elizabeth’s step-father Joe, who had little aircraft pilot experience was flying the plane at the time. However, the exact cause of the crash remained unknown.

Elizabeth Shamblin Hannah today is continuing the dream that Gwen Shamblin Lara had of helping people find a relationship with God. According to her, Elizabeth’s “mother’s message of loving God with all of your heart will live on forever and ever and continue to change lives for all eternity.”
On the day of the crash, Elizabeth sent a text message to Remnant Church members asking them to, “be in prayer — and be at peace. GOD IS IN CONTROL, and we will not stop moving forward with WHAT GOD WANTS with this church.”
