With heavy hearts the family announces the passing of Shannon Rose Ann Kjernisted (nee Foster). Shannon passed away peacefully surrounded by family on October 3, 2018. The family would like to express heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all the staff and volunteers at Ty Watson who took exceptional care of Shannon and helped make her last few months joyful.
Shannon was pre-deceased by her Mother, Beverly Foster and daughter, Lorien. She will be deeply missed by her Father, Melvin Foster, her loving husband of 46 years Stephen, her son, Nathan (Marla), grandchildren, Lennon and Rose, as well as many sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
Shannon touched many people with her genuine care and generosity. When she retired from Specialty Catering, her creativity continued to shine as she began making and selling jewelry. She will be missed by her catering family and her craft market sisters.
