Shannon Diane Graham, 65, of 620 S. Union Street, Galion, ascended to be with her Lord and Savior Sunday, September 8, 2013 at Galion Community Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
Shannon was born in Mansfield on April 1, 1948 to the late Esther and Noah Damron and raised by Virginia and Floyd Ramey.
A special time in Shannon's life was when she lived in Fort Worth, TX. Shannon's love for her family, her beloved dog, Mili, playing the guitar and singing, peanut butter, Ritz Crackers, Pringles and Milky Ways always brought great joy to her and others. Her love and talent for painting were displayed at the Galion Public Library this past May, and was a source of great accomplishment and pride for her and her family.
Shannon will always be lovingly remembered and is survived by her children, Jackie and ""John Dear"" Cole, of Galion, and Michelle and ""Doug Chopped Liver"" Bolles, of Marion. She is also survived by her six grandchildren; Brittnay Taylor, Alicia Kitzmiller, Johnny Cole, Abigail Clinger, Terrahl ""Bub"" Taylor, and Kimmie Cole; four great grandchildren; Bentley, Harlow, Dylan and Baby Boy Clinger; her brother, Evan and Shirley Damron, of Mobile, AL and her sister, Jeanette Ledford of Logan, along with many other family members and friends.
She was preceded in death by numerous brothers and sisters that went before her.
Friends may call from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at the Mark A. Schneider Funeral Home, Galion. Graveside services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 11 at Whetstone Cemetery, Bucyrus, with Pastor Eric Johnson officiating.
