Funds for Shannon VanGilder’s funeral expenses

My sister passed on 12-22-2019. We don’t know exactly what happened yet, but she had gastric bypass surgery on Wednesday and was released Friday. She was having trouble breathing the night before she passed and was gargling fluid. She was rushed in by ambulance and they did CPR for over an hour before she passed.

Shannon was loved by many. She was a kind person who took care of her friends and family. She left behind 5 children, one grand child, and one on the way. She did not have insurance and we want to give her the best funeral that we can. Anything helps. We appreciate everyone that has reached out already. Thank you. May she Rest In Peace.
