CLINTON – Maria Louise Shannon, 58, passed peacefully in her sleep on May 30, 2022. Maria was born in Independence, Mo. Sept 8, 1958, daughter to Joyce Estes and Bruce Keane. Maria graduated from Lawrence High School in Fairfield, ME.

Maria worked for years and eventually became a homemaker with multiple hobbies, including her plants. She was known for caring for everyone like they were her own and all were accepted as family.

Maria was predeceased by her parents; multiple siblings; and her best friend.

Maria is survived by her husband, Ronald Shannon; her children, Wendy, Michelle, and Rose; her grandchildren, Brian, Victoria, Emanuel, and Phillip; many sisters, brothers, and in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Maria has a huge family, both blood and not.

A Celebration of Life will be held, a small family affair, to be determined at a future date as some need to travel.

The family would like to thank Clinton Fire and Rescue for your quick response and to Lawry Brothers for making this process so much easier.

Arrangements are in the care of Lawry Brothers Funeral Home, 107 Main St., Fairfield where memories may be shared, and an online register book signed by visiting
