My late husband Terry and I enjoyed many good times with Shannon. My sincere condolences to Joe and Shawn.

I was fortunate to know Shannon through a professional business relationship. Through this relationship she became a trusted advisor and also a friend.

Shannon helped me to build multiple Information Security Programs at several different companies. Through the course of helping coach me, Shannon would always tell me to ‘Remember to Tell My Security Story’. This became our ‘phrase’….rememver ro tell your story.

So to Shannon’s family, please know how deeply sorry I am for your loss. But please know this. Shannon had a story and it was an impressive one.

She touched the lives of all of her customers. Her impact was significant. I am so blessed to have known Shannon. She was a remarkable person. I will always remember Shannon’s story.

Shannon, your face lit up every room when you walked in!
Joe and Shawn…..we are so so sorry for your loss. We hope the wonderful memories will give you some peace and knowing that Shani is no longer struggling

We have known 5 Generations of Shannon’s family. Starting with Great Grandma Ann, Grandparents Roy and Joyce, Parents John and Dorrie, and Step Father Glen down to Shawn and Shannon. You all have been a part of our memories for forever. Shannon you will be missed by many.

My dear Shani…I’m just so sad that you are no longer here with us on earth, but find peace knowing you are reunited with your mom and both your Dads and the rest of your family that left this world before you. 😇
I have countless fun memories of us…too numerous to mention but our shenanigans together will be forever remembered with a smile!! My all time favorite was our road trip together when you helped me move to San Diego…oh my gosh I think we laughed the entire trip!! Thank you for your huge heart that was always willing to rescue another dog or another cat even though you were allergic. I’m so thankful we were able to chat before Christmas…I will cherish that always!! So for now my friend….I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend your memorial…but I will definitely cheers you and drink a beer. 🍺 Godspeed!!
When I got the news today
I didn’t know what to say
So I just hung up the phone
I took a walk to clear my head
This is where the walking lead
Can’t believe you’re really gone
Don’t feel like going home

So I’m gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Then watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

Funny how the good ones go
Too soon, but the good Lord knows
The reasons why, I guess
Sometimes the greater plan is kinda hard to understand
Right now it don’t make sense
I can’t make it all make sense

So I’m gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Then watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

So long my friend, until we meet again
I’ll remember you
And all the times that we used to

Sit right here on the edge of this pier
And watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer…

One thing that co to use to play in my head is her contagious laugh, makes me smile every time I think of it. Memories of all women snowmobile trips, get togethers at Shawn’s cabin, snowmobile trips to her house where she pulls out all sorts of canned goodies and introducing me to pickle forks… amazing! She is someone that always brought light into the room and always had a story… never any awkward silence either lol. Shannon we love ya and you will be missed

I am so grateful for all the great memories have since first meeting in 1991. We had so much fun 5 years ago in Antwerpen and Paris and I will miss you so much! Love, Alex, Rosa, Lily, Wouter, Levi and Sterre

Shanny – you sure made us laugh a lot! We are going to miss that, especially for the girls weekends. I hope you are at peace now. Watch over us, your family.

She full of vigor, life, and wit!

This girl had so much spunk! Always had a smile and a hug when I saw her. My heart hurts for the family.
