Shannon Married Barry Poff on August 22, 1992 and spent the last 26 years happily married to her best friend. Shannon had numerous waitress jobs including Bonanza. She worked at the rabbit farm and she also had numerous cleaning jobs including Daisy Maid. She enjoyed working for the auction company. She then went back to school and got her Special Care Aid course and worked in the health district for 20 years until she came down with a virus 6 years ago. Shannon was an avid gardener, and had lots of flowers galore. She enjoyed spending time in her yard, using her green thumb and making it look beautiful. She enjoyed many trips to the green houses, and looked forward to spring when they opened. She enjoyed scrapbooking and many other crafts. She enjoyed taking her yearly trips out to B.C. with her sister Donna to see her mountains. She liked to go for long walks and the gym until her health could not permit her to do so. She loved spending time with her grandchildren which included coffee at Tims to fishing at the Dam. They were her pride and joy and she lived for them. She loved spending time with her family making sure we were all happy. She faithfully watched the Rider games and would cheer loud and proud. She will be remembered by her strong family values, and her faith in the lord. No matter what her battle was, she did not complain and she put everyone else first. Her smile lit up the room, and her laugh was contagious. She will be deeply missed by all whose lives she has touched.
