She was known for her signature greeting, “Hey cutie!” Shannon also had many friends in the LGTBQ community and shared an unwavering commitment to equality and human rights. She enjoyed painting and also wrote poetry. She is remembered for her great sense of humour, tenacity, grace and love for her daughter.
