Mary Ramona Shannon
We love and miss you!
In celebration of the kindest most gentle spirit we knew, our mother Ramona Shannon passed away of natural causes on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at the age of 90. Born in Newcastle NB, on December 21, 1929, she was the wife of the late James Shannon and daughter of the late Arthur and Arthemise Maillet.
Ramona leaves behind her children, daughter Diane Webster, son in-law Barry May of Barrie Ontario, son Michael Shannon, daughter in-law Diane Shannon of Mazzerolle Settlement N.B. and son Mark Shannon of Edmonton Alberta and pre-deceased daughter Sheila Anne Kenny in 1974, wife of Trent Kenny.
Ramona was sister to 15 siblings and Aunt Moni to many nieces and nephews.
She is survived by sisters Terry Crawford, Shirley Gillespie and brother Blaine Maillet.
Her grandchildren will miss her dearly, Laura Webster, grandson in-law Jacques Fortier of Toronto Ontario, Ashlee Shannon of Mazerolle Settlement New Brunswick, Shannon Richardson, granddaughter in-law Shelby Davis of Bridgewater Nova Scotia and two great grandchildren, Avery May Richardson and Nathan Davis.
Mom not only devoted herself to raising her own children but also those of 5 other families in her lifetime, working until age 82. The Petersons, Monteiths, Bornbaums/Barbettas, Pelligrinis and Porters were all dear in her heart.
22 children and grandchildren will miss their Nana.
The family wishes to thank all the staff at Thomas Hall for their care, compassion and devotion to mom during her time there.
There will be no services at Ramona’s request and her ashes will be distributed at a later date, to be determined in the spring/summer of 2020.
