Shannon Elyk

September 5, 1962 - April 12, 2016


Shannon Lawnie Elyk (Hendricks) of Cobble Hill, BC passed away April 12, 2016 in Chemainus, BC

Shannon was born in Red Deer, Alberta on September 5, 1962 but moved to Chemainus at an early age. She worked as manager of KFC Ladysmith for many years and loved to have her family and friends around her.

Shannon’s great love was the outdoors, from working in her flower beds to camping and especially to being on the ocean where she always hoped to get a glimpse of an orca pod or maybe a dolphin, her two favorite animals.

Shannon is survived by her husband Dennis, step daughter Leanne, her parents Bill and Margaret Norbury of Chemainus, her sisters Crystal Akerley, twin Shawna Hazard as well as her brothers John Woznica (Catherine), Dan Woznica (Sherry) and Shane Norbury (Shelly).

Shannon never had children but was a loving auntie to all her nieces and nephews. A special thank you to Dr. Lisinski, Harborside Hospice in Chemainus and Pastor Edgar Unvau. No service by request.


When We Remember

You can shed tears that she is gone, 
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, 
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, 
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

I’m so sorry to hear about Shannon’s passing. I worked with her at KFC for many years and she was a wonderful woman with a great sense of humour and was a pleasure to work with and know. Sending love, strength and healing to all of her loved ones

From: Lynn & Al Camacho
Relation: friend

Shannon was a lovely person. We enjoyed many wonderful times with her. She was smart, generous and funny. We enjoy awesome yorkshire
pudding & blueberry cheese cake because Shannon was so kind to share her recipes with us. That is the sign of a true cook & generous
lady. Not everyone shares their food secrets! Aside from that we just enjoyed her company. We will miss the fun times, and just miss the fact that there will no more of those times.
Shannon’s life was not easy at times, but she never complained & always tried to look forward to something more positive.
We hope she is now in a better & happier place & free of pain.
Rest in peace friend.
