Shannon's greatest joys in life were her husband and daughter. Mila and Shannon would spend endless days playing, blowing bubbles, snuggling and bonding as Mother and Daughter. Her endless love for Jesse was unconditional. They fished & bow hunted together and shared the love of the outdoors with their beautiful daughter. Shannon had an incredible spirit and warm heart that will be deeply missed but never forgotten. Shannon, Jesse and Mila were over joyed with the anticipation of their son, Leo. He was just as handsome as his father but left us too soon. Shannon carried Leo through the gates to be with our Lord. Shannon was a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, and sister who will be missed by her friends, family, and all who knew her.
Pallbearers: Brandon Jorgenson, Brandon Johnson, Tim Ormson, Dustin Matzke, Brant Linderholm and Shawn Kauffeld. .
