We Remember


March 23, 1971 — January 12, 2024

NEW TIME & LOCATION: A Celebration of Life for Shannon will be held on SATURDAY, MAY 11, 2024, between 12:00 noon – 3:00 pm, at OKANAGAN MISSION COMMUNITY HALL “The Red Barn”: 4409 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna, BC.  (Casual, please bring pictures and memories to share)

It is with immensely heavy hearts that we announce the passing of my sister, Shannon “Shaninski” Taylor, on January 12th, 2024 in Kelowna General Hospital after a hard but courageous battle with Liver Disease.

Shannon was a beautiful, tough, kind and generous soul that touched so many lives and to say she will be greatly missed is a huge understatement.

Shannon’s greatest love in her life was her beautiful 17-year-old son, Tristan Taylor, who she loved more than words could ever express. Leaving behind her boy was never something she could have ever imagined at the young age of 52, especially during his graduation year. Although she is unable to be with him, she was so proud of the amazing young man that he has become, and she will continue to be in his heart and by his side every day for forever.

Shannon was predeceased by her parents Bill and Judy Taylor of Transcona, Manitoba; as well as her brother Darren Taylor, who passed at 17 in 1983 in West Kelowna. Shannon is survived by her sister Lori Taylor; niece Carlee Lomax; and nephews Brayden and Brody Lomax of Kelowna, BC, who will miss her deeply. She was truly the best Auntie.

Shannon leaves behind many friendships that she cherished very close to her heart, especially her Fab Five best friends and sisters forever, as well as all of their family and her nieces and nephews through them. Shannon was always so proud of her “village” and in her passing would be even more proud.

We remember Shannon for all of the laughs, love, and memories that she gave us all. This is not a Goodbye but a So Long, until we see each other again.
