Shannon Cleary, 44 passed away Sunday morning following a courageous 4 year battle with Metastatic Breast Cancer. Originally from Long Valley, New Jersey, Shannon relocated to Vineland, NJ with her family in 2008.
On top of being a full time mom to her 3 beautiful daughters, Shannon spent her time volunteering at the girls’ schools, coaching cheer, helping with drama productions, and cheering for her daughters on the softball field. Shannon celebrated her life with every breath she has ever taken. She was in love with the beach and had a passion for the Christmas season. It was her favorite time of year to decorate the house. She was a devoted wife and mother, and a loving daughter, daughter-in-law, aunt, cousin, sister-in-law, and Godmother. Shannon had an electrifying smile that could light up a room and approached life with grace. She was the epitome of what it means to be a lady and remains a shining example for her daughters. Shannon loved deeply and, unconditionally, everyone with whom she came in contact
Shannon is survived by Matt, her husband of 17 years; their three daughters, Kayla, Nora, and Quinn; her mother, Bernadette; her brothers, Tim (Careth) and, Chris (Amanda); her sister, Jennifer (Donald); nieces, nephew, aunts, uncles and cousins. Shannon was predeceased by her father, Brian, Sr. and brother, Brian, Jr.
