Shannon Lee Bowerman | Obituary

February 5, 1964 - February 1, 2024

Shannon Lee Bowerman (O’Fallon) passed unexpectedly but peacefully on February 1, 2024, surrounded by her family.

Shannon was the first born daughter of Thomas “Tom” Edward O’Fallon and Diane Marie O’Fallon (now Keller). She was born in Huntsville, Alabama, where her father worked for the Boeing Company. Tom’s work with Boeing moved the family from Huntsville to Slidell, LA, and then to the Northwest.

By the time the O’Fallon family settled on the blueberry farm in Kent, WA, three sisters had joined Shannon: Dawn, Colleen, and Heather. While on the farm, Shannon enjoyed participating in 4-H with her horse “Stardust” and her sheep “Pipi”.

The family later relocated in Kent, where Shannon attended Kent Meridian High School and competed on the diving team. She went on to attend Clark Community College in Vancouver, Washington, in preparation for her career as a dental hygienist.

While in Vancouver, Shannon met and married Steven Bowerman. Their home on Pete’s Mountain in Oregon was a beautiful retreat where many happy times were spent with friends and family.

Shannon and Steven later divorced and she moved North to be closer to her family, while continuing her career as a dental hygienist. She finally settled in La Conner, where she lived together with her mother and worked as a dental hygienist at the office of Dr. Fischer.

Shannon cherished her friends and family. She loved music, aqua blue, early morning iced lattes, Cabo, skiing, golfing, gardening, being outside, white flowers, stylish clothes, and sparkly things. She loved animals, especially her dogs, Madison and Roxy, and the neighbor cats. She had many gifts and talents, as well as a particularly green thumb. She created stunning gardens wherever she lived.

Shannon was described by those who met her over the years as conscientious, compassionate, trustworthy, hardworking, talented, thoughtful, beautiful, kind, sweet, loving, magical, joyful, funny and fun.

Shannon is survived by her mother, Diane Keller, sisters Dawn (Damon) Laird, Colleen (Damon) Stewart, and Heather (Kelly) Devlin, and nieces and nephews, Cameron and Ashley Laird, and Arin and Owen Stewart. She was preceded in death by her father, Tom O’Fallon.

There will be a private celebration of life for Shannon in the Spring of 2024. To share memories and condolences, please visit www.evanschapel.com/obituary/shannon-bowerman
