    Shannon June Shepardson died peacefully at 6:45 p.m. on Nov. 13, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo., surrounded by her family. She was 44 years old.

Garth Tangren (Alice) of Moab; daughters, Brittney Dawn Young (Mitch) of Moab, and Hannah Mary Shepardson of Okmulgee, Okla.; sisters, Julia Shepardson of Moab, Shauna Jones (Kenny) of Moab; brother, Shane Tangren (Deb) of Moab; one grandson, Landon Young, and another grandson, Preston Young, to be born in January, and many beloved nieces and nephews.
