ROGERS: Shannon of Exeter

ROGERS: Shannon of Exeter

After a courageous fight, Shannon grew her wings at Jessica’s House on Thursday, July 2, 2020 of Exeter at the age of 21.  Loving daughter of Lorne and Nicole (Clark) Rogers of Exeter.  Cherished sister of Claire and Atley.  Dear granddaughter of Dana Clark and Rebecca Towns, Michelle Farias, Wendy Rogers, Gerry Lane  and great-granddaughter of James and Sandra Clark.  Dear niece of Kaitlin Clark, Kirsten Clark, Stephanie Kappes, Deanna Farias, Megan Farias, and Ryan Rogers.  Loved by her many family members and friends. She will be missed by her furry friend Jasper. Predeceased by grandparents Karen Smithrim, and Norman Rogers. 

Shannon was an enthusiastic English and History major at Sir Wilfred Laurier in Brantford.  She was a strong advocate for the LGBTQ community, First Nations, and new Canadians.  She had a strong voice for those whom she thought needed it most.  Her strong independence and dedication towards others helped her to start a charity providing ‘Birthday Boxes’ to children at the Children’s Hospital of Southwestern Ontario.  She made sure that their birthdays were special, all the while fighting her own battle.  She always put others first. 

Following Shannon’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family celebration will take place at a later date. 

Donations to ChildCan or the SHDHS Shannon Rogers Scholarship Fund (cheques made payable to The Foundation for Education) would be appreciated by the family.

Condolence from Isaac Moore on July 4th, 2020 12:14 PM

Shannon was an amazing young person who was taken from the world far too soon. As one of her teachers, I saw her struggle with her illness every day from the front of my classroom, and saw her continue the fight well into her adult life. All the while, Shannon put the needs of others front and centre. She was a passionate, hard working, intelligent and caring person. She somehow always found the strength to speak in support of others, despite her own struggles. She continued to spread positivity and spur others into action. If she could find the strength to do that… surely we can all follow her example well into the future. May Shannon rest knowing that her influence has been strong. Love to Shannon’s family at this very difficult time.

Condolence from Vickie Harvey on July 4th, 2020 12:52 PM

Condolence from Tracy McLennan on July 4th, 2020 8:31 PM

Lorne, Nicole, Claire, Atley and family,
Shannon was a rare gift of a human who touched so many lives. Her discussions in our history classes and her ideas were always so thought provoking. She made me smile with her tenacity, and I won’t ever forget her speaking at the school’s Terry Fox Run a few years ago. She always thought of others and showed us what one person could do to improve the lives of those around us. Shannon was a champion. She took a piece of this teacher’s heart with her. I loved her and will miss her presence in this world. My deepest condolences to you all and I pray that the love of your family and friends sustain you through the days ahead.
Love to you all.

Condolence from Janet Tozer on July 4th, 2020 9:43 PM
