Shannon was only in our family for a short while, but it felt like she had been part of it for much longer. Her infectious personality will be truly missed. All my love and prayers to Del and family.
I am shocked and greatly saddened to hear of my dear friend passing. My heart felt sympathy to Del, Sandy, her mom,dad, brothers and niece and nephew. Sorry I never meet you Del, everyone that did said you and Shannon were very loving couple, also that you took loving care of her when she needed it. The first week Shannon and I worked together The challenger exploded. Which did not predict our relationship. We had a great time working with each other, both in the offices and Ozark Humane Society. Hardly anything she couldn't do and I loved her dearly. Will miss her and wishing her peace.
I'm so sorry to hear this. I have known Shannon since before she worked with Dr Padilla, and also worked with her for a few years.She will always hold a special place in my heart. My prayers and condolences to the family.

Even though we haven’t got to spend that much time with Shannon, was always impressed with her wonderful , fun loving attitude. Was easy to see why you two made such a delightful couple. Now remember Del, you have your own personal angel. So do your best to keep her smiling. Love you😘
I am so sad to learn about Shannon’s passing. I have known Shannon for 30 plus years. We worked together in the Healthcare field. I loved visiting with her and talking about her animals. She always talked about having a wonderful husband (who I never had the pleasure of meeting). I’m sending my prayers and hugs to her family. She was truly a wonderful person and will be missed by many.
Shannon became a part of our family since the first time Del brought her home. Although the years were few, her memory will live with us always. Thank you Del for sharing Shannon with us. We will miss her.
Shannon was my twin sister from another Mother. We finally got to meet after a few years of everyone getting us mixed up . And when we finally met we looked at each other and said so your her! We had several years of fun and laughter. Telling people we were twins and joined and the hip and separated at birth. I can’t believe your gone! Why? We will meet again. So sorry Del.and family. Much ❤️
Heart hurts for the family... Shannon and I were good friends since the mid 80's. She rented an apartment in my home for a while. Even though we were many years different in age, we shared many good times and laughs and shared some difficult times also. She helped me through difficult times more than once. I love her and I will miss her.
So very shocked to hear about Shannon's passing. I have known Shannon in several capacities over many years. Her delight will be truly missed. Sincerest Condolences. Cindy Kolb
So sorry to hear about Shannon, thoughts and prayers are with her family. I knew Shannon from working with her in the healthcare field. I later had the opportunity of playing tennis with her outside of work. She was competitive and always had a big smile and a laugh.
Always a great friend and part of our family. Our condolences to Del, Sandy and all the family.
Shannon and I were friends for over 40 years and I will miss her dearly. My prayers and sympathy goes out to Del and her family.
My deepest sympathy is extended to Shannon’s many friends and family. Her talents and dedication to helping many animals in Boone County will be missed. She was an inspiration to those who knew her.
Del so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.Chuck
I have known Shannon for many years due to our careers in the business side of healthcare. What a difference Shannon made in the lives of those around her from mentoring to helping with the animal shelter. She is just walking ahead of us and probably happy to see some of her old friends and family along with previous fur babies.
To Shannon's family, I am so sorry for your loss. I am thankful to have known Shannon. I so admired her for dedicating so much time to the shelter and am grateful for all she has done there. My prayers for your family.
