Shannon Larissa (Blacklidge) Brahmer

May 19, 1986 - August 13, 2013

Shannon Brahmer passed away quietly at home surrounded by family on August 13th at the age of 27, after a 16 month brave battle with breast cancer.

Shannon was born to Gary and Marie Blacklidge in Grants Pass and moved to West Linn as a young girl. She graduated from West Linn High School in 2004. She studied sociology at Oregon State University where she met her husband, Erik. They graduated in 2008 and married August 15, 2009. Shannon also received her Master's of Arts in Teaching from Pacific University and taught elementary school around the valley in Marion, Polk, and Yamhill counties, most recently teaching fourth grade at Eagle Charter School.

Shannon loved teaching and also loved to travel. Shannon especially enjoyed the outdoors and loved hiking, skiing, camping, and kayaking with her husband and her family.

Shannon is survived by her husband Erik Brahmer of Salem; parents, Gary and Marie Blacklidge of Oregon City, her sisters Brienne Blacklidge of Tanzania, Raeme Blacklidge of Springfield, brothers David and Jeremy Blacklidge of Oregon City; and many family members including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and her beloved pets Rilo and Arrow.
