Barbara Ellen Shannnon was born in Richmond BC in 1954, attending Blundell Primary and Steveston Secondary Schools. Her life was spent in BC with travels all over North America.
Her happy marriage began in 1972. She was the proud mother of her only child Mike, and beloved wife “Blondie” to Terry for 43 years.
She spent 28 years in the service of the BC provincial government in Nanaimo, Cranbrook and Surrey retiring in September 2009.
Barb was a proud “Lady Strider” who walked and hiked the beautiful Shuswap area with her good buddies.
We gratefully remember the gentle and genuine caring nurses and staff at Shuswap Hospital – We will never forget them.
Shuswap Hospital Foundation thanks Terry Shannon for his donation covering the purchase a second “Dad’s Bed” In Memory of Barb Shannon. Terry was grateful for the use of the current bed to be by Barb’s side during her hospital stay and wants others to benefit from the use of a “Dad’s Bed” at Shuswap Lake Hospital in the future.
