I am so sorry to hear of Shannon's passing and apologize for the late letter here.
Shannon was truly a blessing to this world! I knew Shannon for roughly 15 years as I saw her as my hair stylist. To this day, no one has come close to the special connection I had with Shannon sitting in that chair. I saw her through her different moves and she saw me through my different moves. Going beyond the wonders of who Shannon was as a person, was her remarkable skills as a hair stylist! It was always such a highlight going to see Shannon to get my hair done. Nearly every time, I was wanting a bit of a change to freshen up. And every time Shannon MORE than delivered! I would say, a little of this, a little of that, and she would work her magic on me! Such fun we had together trying new things out!!! I had so many cuts and colours by Shannon that I loved that I don't know how anyone will replace that - she has definitely been my favourite stylist by far!!! I will forever call my numerous 'bob' cuts, "The Shannon".
After living in Sweden for a number of years now, it has been harder to make it back to Calgary to get fixed up by Shannon. Nevertheless, when I was making more frequent trips back to Calgary it was always such a highlight to go in to see Shannon.
I was always impressed by her strength, her perserverance, her ideas and her style. We could talk about so many different things together with me sitting in the chair.
Shannon will always have a special place in my heart. All my love goes out to Dave, Shannon's family and all those lives she touched in and out of the salon.
Shannon was a bright star and her smile could light up a room. I've known Shannon's family and beloved husband Dave as customers and friends at our neighbourhood coffeeshop... she was as generous and kind to my staff, as she was to others. I loved how she and Dave would take turns treating each other with a latte and a sweet surprise. The entire family was her universe... loved seeing all the interactions and being part of it. She will be terribly missed by all. My deepest condolences to Sharon and Les and David. Words cannot express my feelings, but you are in my thoughts all the time. For such a short life, she touched many and made a big difference in this life... few can say that. Hugs, and Love, Margaret Nemeth
Shannon was a giving and kind soul who looked at life with compassion and wonder. Although things did not always turn out how she may have wanted them to, she saw the opportunity and beauty in life. It was my honour to have known this courage’s spirit for the last 20 years. May her light shine down and brighten our paths through our own journey as we celebrate Shannon’s life in remembrance. With my deepest respect to her parents, family and friends.
I am so sorry to hear about Shannon's passing. I went to A.E. Cross and Central with Shannon, and I have nothing but fond memories of her kindness, compassion, and genuine concern for others. I will try to carry her joy and passion with me always. I will celebrate her life with you and share the many memories I had with Shannon.
Had the pleasure of meeting Shannon several times way back when, such a vibrant young lady (like her Mother) thoughts and prayers are with you.

I had only met Shannon recently through both of our training as hair educators, but her and I connected easily and quickly. In the little time I had known Shannon, her warm and generous spirit shone through in every moment, and I could tell that each word she spoke was genuine and intentional. In sharing our experiences, she never hesitated to remind me of my worth and strength; her support will resonate with me for years to come. Shannon was, and will always be, an incredible soul who I know has made countless positive impacts in others' lives. My deepest condolences to those close to her- may you find comfort in the remarkable memories you hold.
My sincere sympathy and deepest condolences, Les and Sharon, upon the loss of your daughter. May all your delightful memories keep her with you.
Dear Les and Sharon,
I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of your dear daughter. Please accept my deepest condolences during this difficult time. I am certain you will miss her deeply.
Les and Sharon, I am so sorry to learn of you daughter’s passing. My heart goes out to you.
Dear Sharon, Les and Derek. We are sorry to learn of Shannon's passing. She sounds like a wonderful person who gave a lot to the world. Regards, Garda & Tom.
I met Shannon at a Mind, Body & Spirit show, I was waiting for a friend and she asked if I would like to sit down while I waited, we started talking and I asked her about her booth for Life Coaching and what is was all about. I was at a crossroads in my life 2017 as I was about to retire from a 37 year career and as we were talking I made the decision to sign up for her Life Coaching session to help me navigate through the transition. It was a wise decision on my part as she really did help me move to the next stage of life. For the short time I knew her I found her to be compassionate, intuitive and kind person and it saddens to me see she passed away in the prime of her life. My deepest condolences to her family with the loss of Shannon.
I will always remember Shannon with a smile, her amazing laugh and charismatic personality along with her joie de vivre. I was proud to know her and call her my friend. I will think of you often friend and wish you a good trip home. XO
My sincerest condolences & sympathy to Shannon's family and husband. I worked at Shanarchy Hair, when Shannon first opened it. She was so talented, and had such a big heart. I was very saddened and shocked to find out that she passed away. I am so sorry for your loss. Everyone who knew her was blessed.
