    “Grandma Shannon” was truly a treasure to literally thousands! Prayers for her family and friends. May we all remember the type of love and support she shared and carry even just a piece of that with us in our daily lives the way she did.

    Gone but not forgotten….prefect example of a true Tiger! We like many adorned her, and the way she put others before herself! ESHS has been lost sense her retirement! “Once a Tiger always a Tiger!”
    She will be deeply missed. 🙁
