PENNY, Shannon Kathryn Claire - When her heart ceased to beat, ours broke too.
Our beloved daughter Shannon died of cardiac arrest on November 30 at the age of 33 in the arms of her cherished partner Jon Fernandes. Boyd, Nancy and Gavin, her parents and her brother, are left devastated by this tremendous loss.
Her grandmas Faith Penny and Shirley Barrett and her aunts Susan Barrett and Leona Kershaw will deeply miss her.
Edward and May Fernandes and Shannon’s best friend Joan Piscopo will miss the time they spent together.
Shannon will be looking after all her relatives and friends who have travelled this path before her - her grandfathers Luther Penny and Bruce Barrett, her brother Derek and sister of the heart, Stephanie. Her dogs Cody and Rollo and her first dog Sampson will always be with her in spirit.
May the slopes always be covered with snow, the powder perfect and sun at your back as you fly down the best hills forever. But come and visit us once in awhile.
Visitation will be held at McEachnie Funeral Home, Ajax, on Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 10-11 with service to follow in the chapel at 11:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Toronto Humane Society.
