Shannon Davidson

On 6th December 2023, peacefully in hospital surrounded by her loving family, Shannon aged 23 years of Rishton. The loving wife of Adam, beloved daughter of Julie and Patrick, step-daughter to Guy and Sharron, Shannon’s departure has left a void that words cannot fill.

Shannon’s heart was as vast as her love for life. She found joy in the simple pleasures, adored books, and embraced the magic of Christmas with unparalleled enthusiasm. A self-proclaimed connoisseur of Costa Coffee and hot chocolate, Shannon’s warmth extended far beyond her favorite beverages.

Her adventurous spirit led her to numerous corners of the world, including Milan, Malaga, Madrid, Benidorm, Gran Canaria to name a few. Shannon thrived on exploring new places, creating memories that will forever echo in the hearts of those who shared those moments with her.

Shannon was a paragon of positivity, a calm presence in the storm of life. Her selflessness and precious nature endeared her to all who had the privilege of knowing her. She had a particular fondness for dogs, with her bestie Kia holding a special place in her heart.

This year, Shannon discovered a passion for gardening, embracing the beauty of nature with the same zest she brought to every aspect of her life. Her evenings were often spent in the company of “The Great British Bake Off,” a testament to her appreciation for the finer things in life.

For the past 18 months, Shannon dedicated herself to her role in Vehicle Recruitment, a profession that allowed her to connect with people, reflecting her innate love for humanity. Her infectious spirit made her a joy to work with, leaving a lasting impact on all those she encountered.

Iceland’s Reykjavik held a special place in Shannon’s heart, a destination that encapsulated the essence of her adventurous soul. Her legacy will forever be intertwined with the memories of her great inspiration, kindness, and unwavering positivity.

Shannon Davidson was more than a daughter, step-daughter, wife, and colleague; she was a beautiful soul who touched the lives of everyone fortunate enough to cross her path. As we mourn her passing, let us celebrate the vibrant life she lived and the indelible mark she left on our hearts.

May she rest in peace.

    I worked with Shannon at 247 for several years. We spent many a lunch times discussing what books she had been reading resulting in me adding many to my recommendation list and loaning several from her. I was lucky enough to be invited to the wedding of Shannon and Adam and I can say without a doubt I have never seen two people more in love and meant for one another. We laughed, danced and sang the night away. I was heartbroken when I found out about Shannon being diagnosed at the start of the year. But with every message i sent she was always so strong and positive. She was the light in all the darkness.  The passing of Shannon is truly heartbreaking and she will leave a hole in so many people’s lives. I am blessed to have many fond memories with her and it was a honour to call her not only my colleague but a true friend. Xx

    Despite only meeting last August, you very quickly became one of my best friends and that is no surprise whatsoever as you are the kindest, most supportive and most positive person I know. From making the best mochas every 3am on the dot on our night shift, to random day trips to every shop to look at their Christmas range, Costa & Nando’s date days out, telling you my baby is going to be named after the strongest, most inspirational person in my life – you. At 4am when the team was seriously lagging… Always cheering us up by having us play ‘guess what time the sun rises’… And then secretly messaging me the answer so I’d win haha. To having us playing Christmas music from August right up until December… No comment on that one haha!  This year has been a tough one, but I never heard you moan and whinge once, even though you had every right too. I am so proud of the person you are Shannon, you are a real life angel and I am so blessed to have our friendship. You left way too soon, but you will stay in my heart forever. I miss you so much you beautiful girl. I love you, always xxxxxxxxx

    My darling Shannon, my beautiful cousin & best friend ♥️ You hold such a special place in my heart. I will miss you beyond measure. You have taught me so much and inspired me with your huge kind heart and fearless attitude to life. I love you forever and always ♥️


    My love and prayers are with you all xxx


    It would be impossible for me to explain the love we had for Shannon, we will miss her with our whole hearts, but we consider ourselves so lucky to have known her and to hold such precious memories. Being a part of Shannon’s family since she entered our lives as a gorgeous little girl at just five years old and seeing her grow into the strongest, most positive, kindhearted and selfless lady has been an absolute joy. Her courage over the last year has been inspirational and her love for her family and the life she had built gave her comfort even in her most difficult moments. Shannon had a smile which will always stay with us, she beamed from ear to ear and I am so grateful we have beautiful photos which captured her happiness perfectly. Even in her teenage rock chick years, her lovely smile always shone through, she could never hide it. I remember Shannon’s caring nature and fun loving spirit from the very beginning. I remember looking after her in the school holidays decorating cakes, colouring in and dancing/doing flips and rolly pollies on the settee (sorry Guy and Julie). She invited me to her 6th birthday party with all of her little school friends even though I was 19! She always cared deeply for animals and creatures. This love grew to children and I can’t even begin to describe her joy of becoming an Auntie. My boys have such fond memories of playing in the swimming pool with Auntie Shannon in Spain and the endless rounds of Chase the Ace and Uno, to which Shannon never got bored. She would always make time to play ‘one more game’ with them. They enjoyed taking care packages to Shannon and she ended up with a collection of soft toys, blankets and books to “make her happy”. Shannon was the only person I knew who could win Friends Scene It against even the most dedicated fans, and we would always quote Friends as part of our day to day chats. Shannon was a joy to be around, and although it’s hard to believe she won’t be at the other end of the phone, she will never ever be forgotten and we have the precious memories we can hold dear for the rest of our lives. None of us know what comes after life, but I hope Shannon is curled up in her Christmas jumper and comfy pj’s, reading a good book, in her happy place. Sweet dreams Shannon, we will always love you with all our hearts.

    I remember your mums and guys wedding day, you Katie and honey charging about on the double decker bus hired to take guests to the wedding, when everyone was inside I watched all 3 jumping on and off shouting all aboard without a care in the world 💕

    Doug & Lynne Wilson

    Our deepest condolences, thinking of you all at this sad time.

    Shannon where do I even begin. We met at rhyddings and you welcomed me into you and Katie’s unbreakable friendship with open arms. At the time for me this was a huge saviour for me. You was a beautiful, inspiring, kind warm hearted young lady. We would always plan each lessons we had together and sit next to each other and you would tell me about the music you listened to and laugh at me because I was obsessed with Katy Perry 😂 I remember us spending every lunch and breaks together then going to the sweet shop after school to get as much as we could for £1 and then sharing it with eachother on the bus and the weekends was for sleepovers. I remember going to rhyddings park and making music videos to the songs we used to listen to and of course California girls and you would absolutely hate me for it (I’m sorry!!) we would have face masks and watch Perks of being a wallflower and at Christmas time you would always make everything all Christmassy from decorated hot chocolates to watching every Christmas film you could find on Netflix ❤️ I’ll always remember you Shannon and I’ll remember that time I got into my first relationship and I was too afraid to tell my family and you would give me a Zoella book which helped me with this. I remember everytime it was our birthday and we would spend our pocket money on birthday presents for eachother and bring in balloons and those little birthday cakes and pester the dinner lady to light the candle in the dinner hall 🫣 and make the year 7s wish you a happy birthday because you deserved the attention and love off absolutely everyone. You was always the kind of person who didn’t care how she looked, you didn’t want to be like everyone else and you didn’t care about how many likes a Facebook picture got or if you fitted in with bigger crowds which is something I looked up to and I was really inspired by this and wanted to be just like you. The memories are endless and I will treasure them for the rest of my life. I’m glad we still managed to message eachother before you grew your wings I’m sorry that we never met up for that Costa and exchanged books. I hope god is treating you like the queen you are up in heaven and they make gorgeous hot chocolates with whipped cream and marshmallows up there and have Colleen Hoover books and let’s not forget the soap and glory sets you loved! ❤️ rest tightly Shan, I miss you today tomorrow and forever. I’ll love you forever as the best friend you always was. P.s I’m sorry for the worst pictures of us before we hit puberty I know you’ll be cursing me up there but they hold so many fond memories and I hope you’re laughing at how silly we looked. You smashed all your goals you always had set when we was young and I am incredibly proud of you. Save me a seat up there 🪽🌈🎗️👼🏼

    What a beautiful soul we have lost.  Someone reminded me this week of how lovely Shannon’s smile was when she won the Swarovski hamper at the JBT Ball,   Her face was a picture.   Shannon and Adam were made for each other, they both had the same zest for travel and making memories.  Shannon will be missed by everyone who knew her.  I for one will remember her always x

    I was first introduced to Shannon when she and Adam first started dating, I remember Shannon being quite shy but incredibly kind. Shannon was all that Adam talked about, whenever we would see him the first person he’d mentioned was always Shannon. They managed to go on some amazing trips together and saw so many incredible things. The time that I got to know Shannon for the amazing person that she was, was when Michael and I did a tour around Scotland with Shannon and Adam, 5 days of camping together, seeing some amazing scenery and enjoying cooking together. We stayed at a different campsite each night before getting up each morning and setting off to a new destination to do it all again that evening. From this trip, I could see that the love that Shannon and Adam had for each other was nothing like I’d ever seen before. I’m incredibly grateful that I then got to see their beautiful wedding day. I didn’t think I’d be the person to be crying at their wedding but everything about it was magical, you could really see that Shannon was the light of Adam’s life. Shannon will without a doubt be missed greatly, she’ll be thought about and talked about, every single day. Rest in peace Shannon x

    I didn’t knew Shannon for a very long time but I feel so lucky to meet her.  My beautiful friend Shannon, thank you for introducing me into reading and into the world of books, I learnt soo much from you. Of course I am still not as good at reading as you are, who finishes a book in an afternoon. Thank you for being my friend, being always there for me. Despite the past months you were going through you were so positive and always with a smile on your face. I remember if I was a bit sad you knew what to say you were there offering your warm hugs and of course a nice latte or mocha. Thank you 😊 I love you forever and I will always miss you.

    Kaye and Ian Stones

    Fond memories of knowing Shannon from a lovely shy little girl, enjoying skiing and sailing holidays together and seeing her grow into a young woman with a beautiful smile and who was the most positive, courageous and inspirational young woman we have ever had the privilege to know. You will be forever young and in our hearts, gone but never forgotten. May you rest in peace, Shannon. God bless x

    Tracey Sims

    To loose such a beautiful soul so young seems so unfair. My heart goes out to Shannon’s Family at this very difficult and sad time. May the memories you hold help you through this tough time and bring warmth to your hearts always. Shannon may be gone in body but I am certain her beautiful spirit will live on forever. Thinking of you all and sending my sincere condolences at this very sad time.

    Kerry Turner

    Shannon was only with First Travel Solutions for 18 months, but to say she was very much a part of the FTS family. She slotted into her roles and her teams with ease. This devastating news has hit our entire business extremely hard.  She was a beautiful person inside and out and her bravery this year is further testament to what a legend she was.  She will never ever be forgotten and will forever be in our hearts. Rest in peace beautiful brave girl – it has been a privilege. Much love, Kerry and all your friends and colleagues at FTS.

    Maxine Stones

    In 2007 we went skiing in Romania on a family holiday, Shannon would have been about 7 years old, but she absolutely smashed it, no fear, no complaining, she jumped right in. I remember her with her skis on, ski poles in perfect position, looking the part and whizzing down the slopes, we would then catch up at lunch time with a cold lemonade on top of a snowy mountain. My dad, (aka uncle Ian) made up a nickname for Shannon on this holiday, ‘Shannon Buchanan’, no reason for it, no relevance whatsoever, no back story, but the name stuck all holiday, to be honest, she will always be our Shannon Buchanan. If there’s anything Shannon has taught me, it’s to stay positive, no matter what life throws at you. Shannon is such an inspiration to us all. Lots of love always, Maxine xxx

    You fought a good fight. My heart goes out to your family, friends and colleagues for their loss of such a beautiful soul. You will be remembered and celebrated.


    Beautiful Shannon. Beautiful in every single way. Mature, beyond your years, you always saw the positives, being kind and selfless to everyone.  You knew what you wanted from life too… Everything today, why wait for tomorrow?…you clever girl. Love and miss you always. Beautiful Shannon.x

    Cat Jones

    I have only known Shannon for 18 months but she very quickly became a very good friend. When she worked on our shift, she would always ask what metal models I am making or have made. She was really interested in the detail of each one. We always used to discuss the books we are reading or have in our lists. She was such a positive happy person to be around. The only dispute we ever had together was her love and passion of Christmas and playing songs year round. Shannon, I love and miss you each and everyday. Will always remember you. Xx


    A lovely, kind and happy soul. It was a pleasure to know you and see you grow up. My thoughts are with your whole family. I can’t imagine the loss they feel at loosing you but I know you’re with your grandad watching over them all.

    Charlie Smith

    I worked with Shannon at 247, she was a sweet girl with a heart of gold. We shared lots of funny times together, myself, Shannon, Joanne and Lauren shared a small office before 247 moved buildings. I am so sad of the passing of Shannon. I send my deepest condolences to her husband Adam and the rest of her family. May she rest in peace x

    Rowena, Alex and family

    Shannon was a lovely girl with a beautiful soul, it’s quite powerful and moving to read all these heartfelt tributes. It is a true testament to Shannon and very clear that she was deeply loved by many people. I will remember Shannon as little girl with an infectious smile, who turned into an amazing and beautiful woman. My heart felt condolences go to all Shannon’s family and her friends, as I know there will be an empty space in a lot of people’s hearts.♥️

    Dawn Davidson

    Sending my warmest condolences I cannot begin to imagine the big hole Shannon has left in your hearts. To Adam a beautiful loving wife and Julie and Patrick a loving daughter, and daughter in law to Guy and Sharon, Always so positive and caring and the best company. She was a good friend as well as a daughter in law. Always a good listener and gave the best advice. I will miss her immensely, she will stay in our hearts and thoughts always. Adam was so so lucky to have her in his life. They matched so well the lid to his teapot. Xx

    I had the pleasure of working with Shannon for 2 years. She introduced me to the velvetiser and changed my hot chocolate game forever. She never had a bad word to say about anyone and was a lovely bubbly girl. So sad to hear of her passing. Thinking of her & all her friends and family  xx
