Carol S. (Perry) Shannon
After living a life full of spirit, laughter, and friendship to all that came across her path, Carol Shannon died peacefully on April 6, 2017.
Born on December 31, 1946, in Columbus, Ohio, Carol moved to the Pittsburgh area and graduated from Baldwin High School in 1965. Carol broke the mold early in life, being the one to ask her husband to marry and going to work for TWA as a receptionist. Soon thereafter, she settled in to her favorite role, that of a mother and wife, and continued her career in one of her favorite places, The Penguin Bookstore in Sewickley.
Those who knew Carol will remember her for her incredible kindness, sense of humor, fine-tuned ear for listening, generosity, and deep compassion for the less fortunate. Carol always loved a gathering and the party always loved her. Later in life she entertained all with her quick wit and inspired us with her will to overcome any obstacle. A room with Carol was a room full of love.
More than anything, she loved her friends and family. Carol is survived by her husband George, and her three children, Sean, Matthew, Chad and his wife Catherine. She is also survived by her father, Steward Perry and her sister Lyn Anzalone.
The family will be receiving visitors at Copeland’s Sewickley, 702 Beaver St. on Monday and Tuesday 2-4, 6-8, with prayers on Wednesday at 9:30 AM followed by Mass at St. James Church in Sewickley at 10 AM. Rev. Thomas J. Burke will officiate.
Memorial gifts can be made to Villa St. Joseph in Carol’s name to 1030 State Street, Baden, PA 15005
