May 12, 1980 - August 9, 2023
In loving memory ~
Shannon Laurie Devore was born on May 12, 1980 in Quesnel, British Columbia. The family moved to North Delta in 1986, and Shannon attended Annieville Elementary. The family eventually returned to Quesnel, and Shannon graduated from Correlieu Secondary School.
Growing up, Shannon competed competitively in gymnastics and throughout her life she had a great love of animals having horses, dogs, cats and hamsters. This fittingly led later in her life to her management of a pet store in Prince George.
Shannon was a hard worker and started working in high school at A&W, then to the hospitality industry where she worked as a server and supervisor for many years. She took pride in her work and was proud to have been chosen to serve Elton John when he played a show in Kelowna.
In 2008, her caring nature returned her to Quesnel to care for Ammie, her ailing grandmother. Her grandparents played an important part in her childhood years, especially her beloved Ammie.
Shannon and Rick married in 2011, and spent many happy times travelling, camping, and enjoying life together along with their 3 pets. In 2016 Shannon was diagnosed with a rare auto-immune condition, fighting all the challenges and pain that came with the disease. Eventually unable to work, she developed an interest in filling her days sewing and crafting, and attending craft fairs, all of which brought her joy. The disease did not stop her passion for life, and on days she felt better it was important for her to connect with her friends and family. She loved going through old pictures and reminiscing with her friends about the old times. It was important to Shannon to check in to see how others were doing.
Shannon had many interests including poetry, reading, gardening, camping, scrap booking, sewing, listening to music and taking care of her 3 pets.
Shannon was fun, loving, caring, and thoughtful and will be fondly remembered by her family and her many friends. Our hearts are broken. We love you forever and miss you so much.
Shannon is survived by her husband Rick Devore, her fur babies Honey, Leroy and Dexter, her parents Dan and Colleen Chadsey, her brother Nicholas Chadsey and family, and her special niece Brooklyn Chadsey.
