Our mother, Donna Sue Shannon, was strong, generous and full of life. There was nothing that she would not do for her family for us she was Super Woman. She went above and beyond the call of duty. She took good care of her family as well as friends; strong mind, overworked body, but still she moved on never ever giving up.
We truly love you and will miss you as we celebrate your going home.
Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
