It is with deep sorrow that we announce the death of Shannon Brailsford, 61, who passed away on October 16, 2020. Shannon was the beloved wife of Bruce, and loving mother to Linnea, Alyssa, Brian, and Laura.
Shannon loved her family fiercely and unconditionally. She supported and encouraged her children in everything they dreamed of doing and was incredibly proud of their accomplishments.
Shannon was a devout member of her church. She spent a year and a half on a service mission to Rome, Italy and learned Italian. She later served on committees that supported others in need who were going through hardships. She was always willing to help others with a smile.
Shannon enjoyed music, and she could often be found playing the piano and singing in her home and church. Shannon’s love of music was instilled in her children, and they learned to sing, play the violin and piano. She was always excited to accompany them in musical numbers, especially during the holidays.
Shannon had a green thumb and gardened whenever she could. She grew beautiful roses and loved growing herbs to use in the kitchen. Shannon was an avid reader and loved literature, graduating with an English degree. She was a life-long learner. She valued education and inspired her children to love learning.
Even though she was taken so soon in life, she will be remembered by those whose lives she touched, and her children will continue her legacy.
A viewing will be held Sunday, October 18, 2020 from 2-4 pm at E.J. Fielding Funeral Home, 2260 W. 21st Ave., Covington, Louisiana 70433.
Family and friends are invited to attend to celebrate her life.
