Holding the hand of her husband Brandon, Shannon went to heaven to be with God. Shannon was a wonderful person, as all of her friends and family know. She would not hesitate to lend a helping hand in any way she could: lending her home for someone to stay, lending an ear or offering emotional support, and never forgetting a card for someone’s special day. Shannon was constantly in the kitchen making her favorite delights for her friends and family, to make sure everyone else would have a great time at the party. She loved being the host to bring friends and families together. Since a young child seeing Christmas lights and saying “look at the red rights [sic] Daddy”, lights of any kind, especially at Christmas time and the fourth of July, became an obsession and in 2020, she won the local Christmas lights display competition. Shannon’s kind heart focused on giving and she graciously received.
Shannon attended Santa Clarita Christian School, Saugus High School, and the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. She started her career working for the family business (Paradise Industries), moved into a job in Hollywood helping with TV shows like “Little People, Big World” and “Why Not? With Shania Twain”, then coming back to work with the family business after moving from Los Angeles to Discovery Bay.
In June of 2013, Shannon met the love of her life Brandon and quickly adopted his amazing daughter Katelyn as her own. Brandon describes his life as “never having been better since the first time we started texting. She was the best mother to my daughter and to our son. She was my best friend, and I was her best friend.”
Shannon developed so many deep connections throughout the years and it would be a long list of all the friends she would call her best friends. You all know who you are. Her friendships have lasted a lifetime, and continue with our family.
Shannon will always live on in our hearts and minds, and although we will miss her greatly during the remaining years of our lives, we look forward to the day when we get to see her again. We’re sure she is getting the party set up, complete with lights and delicious goodies ready for our eventual arrival!
