THE WOODLANDS- TEXAS- Mrs. Mary Elizabeth (Cassie) Shannon, 91, wife of the late James P. Shannon, passed away peacefully on February 8th, 2016.

Born and raised in Salem, she was the daughter of the late Napoleon P. and MaryAnn Cassie. Elizabeth, as her family and friends called her, attended the Salem Vocational High School in the early 1940's where she discovered her love for hard work and determination.

Her strong work ethic carried on throughout her life as she worked for the Western Electric Company which later became a part of Alcatel-Lucent, a French global telecommunications equipment company. She was determined in anything she did whether it was crafting embroidered pillow cases or taking on a new journey in her travels to Ireland and England.

A long time resident of the city of Peabody until moving to The Woodlands, Texas in 2011, Elizabeth shared her life within the North Shore Community. She was a proud member of the 42 Club in Beverly, and found joy in taking risks whether it was through a game of chance, cards or by playing Bingo with her friends.

Elizabeth will always be remembered by her family and friends as a loving and caring woman. She had an extraordinary way of making anyone feel special. She is survived by her sister Barbara Beavis of Texas and her many beloved Nieces and Nephews who she treated as her own children. In addition to her loving husband, she was predeceased by her siblings Joseph Cassie, Victorine Page, Gertrude Marshall, Albert Cassie and Thomas Cassie.

ARRANGEMENTS: Her Funeral Service will be held in The O'Donnell Funeral Home, 46 Washington Sq., (at Salem Common), Salem, Thursday, February 18th, at 11 A.M. Relatives and Friends Invited. Burial in Puritan Lawn Memorial Park, Peabody. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy can be made in Elizabeth's memory to Care Dimensions, 75 Sylvan Street, Danvers, MA 01923.
