June 4, 1943 — August 31, 2013

L ana M. Shannon, 70, of Vermillion, passed away Saturday, August 31, 2013 at the Community Memorial Hospital in Marysville.  She was born June 4, 1943 in Gallup, New Mexico, the daughter of Troy and Ulla (Mace) Allen.  She made her home in Marshall county in 1962 and has been a resident ever since.  Church, God and family were very important in her life.  Lana especially enjoyed old movies, staring actors like John Wayne, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart and Fred Astaire.  She loved epic movies like Gone with the Wind and other classics.

The Holy Bible was always a constant in her life.  She read or had it read to her daily by her husband and took avid notes.  She treasured her farm and garden and the ability to live off the land.  Often you would find her sampling her fruit and vegetables before she brought them in.

Lana was preceded in death by her parents.  She is survived by her husband, Lonnie Shannon of the home; three sons, Jack Allen Boyle of Frankfort, Gary (Suzanne) Boyle of Vermillion and Troy Boyle of Vermillion; one daughter, Amanda Doran of Topeka; two sisters, Theresa Kelly of Farmington, New Mexico and Troyetta Lynn Hargis of Aztec, New Mexico; 14 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.
