Diana M. Shannon

Died Jan. 28, 2019


Our dearest Diana M. Shannon, 62, of Gibraltar, formerly of Standish, passed from us much too suddenly and was welcomed into eternal life Monday, Jan. 28, 2019.

Born Aug. 12, 1956, in Standish, Diana lived in the Sterling area in her younger years and cared for others as an LPN at Standish Community Hospital. Her adventurous life continued when Diana met the love of her life, David Tyree. Their life together took her to the suburbs of Detroit where she continued her nursing career, honorably served her country in the U.S. Army, then settled into a life of factory work, retiring from Ford Motor Company in April 2018.

Diana was a generous, caring and compassionate person, but above all, she was a dearest friend who has left us a void that can never be filled. She was also a talented chef, and many weekend evenings were spent at the dining room table sharing a meal and lots of laughs with loved ones.

Diana was proud of what she was able to accomplish in her life, but nothing gave her greater joy than the wonderful children and grandchildren that survive her: daughters, Michelle Saunders and Danielle Faunce; and grandchildren, Ashley and Cody Saunders. Diana also doted over her other surviving family members: her mother, Delina Shannon; brother, Daniel (Linda) Shannon; her very special sister, Denise (Tim) Knight; sister-in-law, Mary Shannon; and many nieces and nephews.

Diana was greeted into eternal life by her family who passed before her: Her loving husband, David; her father, James Howard Shannon; brothers, James Jr. and Douglas; and an infant sister, Darlene.

Visitation for Diana took place at Lee-Ramsay Funeral Home Standish Chapel on Monday, Feb. 4, at 11 a.m. with a prayer service and rosary at 7 p.m. Visitation at Resurrection of Our Lord Catholic Church took place at 10 a.m., with the Rev. Father David Parsch celebrating Diana's life with holy Mass at 11 a.m. Cremation followed.

May peace and eternal life be granted unto you, dearest Diana, and may perpetual light shine upon you! May we hear the whisper of your voice in a gentle evening breeze, and feel your tender embrace in our time of extreme sorrow!
