Shannon is survived by her mother, Jackie Montgomery; sister & brother-in-law, Shellie & Dennis Roop; step-sister, Lisa Spence; nephews, Shane and Kason; nieces, Jacey, Kayla, and Becca. She is also survived by aunts and uncle, Brenda & Blaine Poff, Linda Nester; cousins, Brett Bolen, Shad Bolen, Renée Nester; fiancé, Steve Hungate; her longtime friend, Jeanie; as well as her special love, Jenna the cat.
Shannon was a person who never met a stranger and had many, many friends. She left us far too soon and will be missed by many. Since the age of 5, her medical issues have been many and she has always dealt with them and always, always come back, but on the 26th her body just could not fight anymore. Now she has no pain, all the scars are gone, and she is singing. Anyone who knew her knows she loved to sing.
Visitation will be held on Sunday, December 6, 2020, from 3-5 p.m. at Horne Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, her family wishes donations be made to the Montgomery County Animal Care & Adoption Center in memory of Shannon.
