OBITUARY

Shannon Watson

June 11, 1962August 7, 2019

Shannon Sue Duncan Anderson Watson 57 passed away Wednesday Aug 7th suddenly due to complications of cancer.

Shannon was born in Salt Lake City Utah to Albert Wesley Duncan and Erika Helga Kupczik Duncan. She graduated from Cottonwood High School in 1980 and worked with the John Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah for 15 years. Our hearts and many others are truly heartbroken over losing the sweet soul Shannon had. Her love was unconditional, and she always put others before herself.

Shannon loved her family, friends and just people in general. Always organizing some kind of a B.B.Q, lunch date or party to bring everyone together. She loved all children and they loved her ❤️

She adored her son Bronson and especially her grandchildren Grayson and Roxston (they were the final light in her life). Shannon wasn’t afraid to speak her mind. She was quick to defend anyone she cared for (right or wrong).

She was generous beyond measure and would often give you something of her very own just to make you smile. She loved the beach, riding motorcycles, traveling, music and anything that involved laughter and risk. She loved her mom and often told her she loved her to the moon and back. Shannon left her mark and will be missed by many.

We’ll miss you Shannon! Your gypsy soul will always remain in our hearts forever and always.. xoxo

Shannon is survived by her husband Greg Mauch Watson, parents Albert W. and Erika Duncan, in-laws Karl Mauch Sr. and Annie Marrs Woodies, Son Bronson Morgan Anderson, Grandsons Grayson and Roxston Anderson, Stepson Kris (Rachel) Watson, Twin Brother Chad (Obdulia) Duncan, Sister in-law Patricia (John) Allaire, and Brother in-law Kar (Sharon) Mauch.

I worked with Shannon in the Moran Contact Dept. and she was always a whirlwind of activity! Loud, proud, and a most beautiful old soul that really cared for people. If someone told her she couldn't do something she would turn around and prove them wrong. Shannon had strength of character and a tenacity for living and loving her family, friends, and patients. She made me laugh constantly when sharing what she had done or said. She was a hard worker and never afraid to tackle what had to be done at work or at home. She loved deeply and lived large. The day she passed there was a huge red/orange sun setting and it reminded me of how brightly Shannon's spirit was! The next day it rained, as if even the heavens were in mourning. Peace my friend.

I am a co-worker of Shannon’s and have known her the entire time she worked at Moran Eye Center.
My memory of Shannon is her beautiful smile; she never lost that radiant smile through her ordeal. Many times I saw Shannon on her “break”, kicked back on the fourth or fifth floor with her feet up on the “end” table. She was either talking on the phone or scrolling the phone. Sometimes she just looked like she needed conversation so I plopped MYSELF down and the conversation began, we had the best chats. I don’t really know if SHE was the one that needed the conversation or if I was the one that needed the conversation because I know I felt pretty doggone good when I left Shannon’s side. We had several of those meaningful moments over the course of her illness. I am sad that Shannon is no longer here, there is a real VOID at Moran. Her beautiful smile and gentle way touched many lives. I’m sorry that I can’t be there for the service, I have an activity planned with grandchildren; I know Shannon would understand. May your family be blessed during this trying time.

My sweet ♥️ Shannon till our paths cross, and we meet again;

I will show you how to ride that 98 Fat Boy;
the one you asked me to teach you how to ride;
that Harley you always wanted to learn to ride,
We'll be listening to The Boss on the radio,
While rolling down the highway to Laguna Beach;
that's where we'll put our toes in the water and run on the sand ;👣
That's how we'll roll!

love You Chika!💋

Adios, Au revoir, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodnight!

To Shannon's Family, especially little Greyson, whom I heard about so much, My heart broke in two when I found out the day she passed. I've known Shannon for 15 years as her employer is a customer of mine. I've talked with her all this time and we became friends, Good friends. We'd giggle on the phone about nothing. Then we talk about about grandchildren, Greyson, Roxton and my granddaughter, Riley. She was such a sweet and caring person and I'm sending you all love and please give Greyson a big hug from me. Our last conversation was a couple weeks ago via messenger. I sent her pictures of our favorite place, Laguna Beach. We always talked about going. One day I will, for her. She's one in a million and I miss her dearly. Love, Jan ❤️
