September 8, 1957 – February 18, 2021
at the age of 63 years
Shannon Lee (Mayer) Tetz passed away February 18, 2021 in Salmon Arm B.C at the age of 63.
Shannon is predeceased by her father Bud Mayer, her mother Audrey Chrunik, stepfather Dick Chrunik and her beloved dog Odi.
She will be forever remembered and cherished by her children Peter Winstanley, daughter Krystal Winstanley (Kim), husband Duane Redekopp, sisters Cindi Sexsmith (Tony) and Tami Sinclair (Clint) as well as her brother Grant Mayer (Vanessa), many nieces, nephews, cousins and a multitude of friends.
She was known to many as a feisty, witty, loving woman with a larger-than-life personality. She had a great sense of humour and loved to make people laugh. She was also a fantastic cook and often had get togethers where she would cook a feast for friends and family. She loved to play games like Crib, Yahtzee and Cards Against Humanity and often would spend hours winning cash from anyone who dared to play for money. She was short in stature yet fierce when it came to protecting those she loved and could take anyone in a leg wrestle. She also loved music and would often sing along to her favorites especially while driving.
The family would like to thank all who cared for her over the last several years including many home care nurses and doctors as well as her husband Duane Redekopp.
Instead of the traditional sending of flowers we ask that you please share your favorite stories and pictures of Shannon through Facebook and with each other in her remembrance. Also be sure to think of her when you smell lilacs, her favorite flowers.
Due to the exceptional circumstances of this year, there will be a private family celebration sometime in the future.
