Shannon Pifer

Obituary of Shannon Michelle Pifer

Shannon Michelle Pifer was born on May 27, 1985 in Monroe, Michigan. She was one of three daughters born from the union of her parents: Michael J. Pifer and the late Diane Marie (Gryder) Pifer. She obtained her education by attending Monroe High School and graduated with the Class of 2003.

Shannon was blessed with two beautiful children: Kennedy and Carter and they were her pride and joy. Nothing made her happier than to watch her children grow. She enjoyed time spent with her family and she always looked forward to being near her father and sisters during the holidays. To support her growing family, she worked at Dundee Manufacturing as a factory worker.

Shannon loved life and always had a smile on her face. She was very kind and sociable, making it very easy for her to make lasting friendships. She loved time spent outdoors camping and socializing around the bon fire. Her therapy was getting into her car blasting country music with the windows down.

Her loving personality, caring nature and smile that could light up a room are just a few things that will be deeply missed by those who knew her best. To know Shannon was to love her and there will forever be a void in the hearts of her family and friends.

Shannon Michelle Pifer, age 33, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at ProMedica Monroe Regional Hospital. Her passing is preceded by her mother: Diane Marie Pifer who passed away in 2003; her paternal grandparents: Raymond and Mary Pifer and her maternal grandfather: William Gryder.

To cherish her memory, she leaves her father: Michael J. Pifer; her children: Kennedy Bruck (Thurlow Bruck Jr.) and Carter Cadle (Bobby Cadle); her sisters: Kamela (Brian) Dyer and Adrienne Pifer; her maternal grandmother: Barbara Gryder; her nephew: Benson Dyer; and her nieces: Isla Dyer and Sicily Dyer.
