Shannon was born on August 3, 1960 in Regina, Saskatchewan and had been a resident of Revelstoke since 1997. She spent many years working in the hospitality industry and received her diploma for hotel assistant management with highest honours, which she really enjoyed right up until the time her health started to affect her more and more. Shannon loved to go fishing and hunting with her husband. She didn’t care if she caught a fish or not, she just enjoyed the water. The same went for hunting. She always wanted everyone to get the animal first.
She was predeceased by her paternal grandparents, Benny and Dolly Evenson; maternal grandparents, Arthur and Rachel Carlson; mother and father-in-law, Louise and Ken Ross; sister-in-law Bonnie Nicholson; brother-in-law Gordon Ross and her grandson, Corbin Reyes Joseph. Shannon leaves behind her husband of 34 years, Darrell of Revelstoke; three children: Michelle Ross (Brandt Grey) of 150 Mile House, Jocelyn Ross of Revelstoke and Darryl Ross of Youbou, B.C.; two grandchildren: Brady Reyes Joseph and Makenzy Reyes Joseph both of Revelstoke, her parents Norman & Maxine Evenson of Abbotsford, one sister, Charlene (Stephane) Brissette of Quebec; aunt Ella Mae (Mel) Stenner of Saskatchewan; brother-in-laws Ken Nicholson, Dennis Ross and Don (Sherrene) Ross, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews, and a number of good friends.
