Shannon Gray passed away from lymphoma on September 3, 2018 at the age of 28. Her loving husband, Aaron Trachtenberg, was by her side, with sister Jenny, mother Kim, and father Randy close by.
Shannon shone so brightly. She lived life with courage and exuberance while practicing gentleness and kindness in each interaction. Her passing is a loss to everyone who met her, and those who never had the chance.
Shannon was a gifted athlete and a fierce competitor. She was an accomplished nursing graduate who was looking forward to helping others. She loved the outdoors, whether walking in the Assiniboine forest or hiking with Aaron in the Rockies. Shannon was a passionate dancer. She was a true animal lover and will be sorely missed by her yellow lab Rosie.
A memorial service will be held at 1:30 pm on Friday, September 14, 2018 in the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg, 603 Wellington Crescent at Academy Road.
