Shannon Sheehan-Eakle
Family Care Specialist
(815) 844-5151

Shannon grew up in St. Peter, Minnesota and attended Mankato State University, where she met and married her first husband Kevin. Kevin and Shannon had four "beautiful" children (Nichole, Connor, Kennedy & Meghan) and left their home state for Bloomington, Illinois in 1998. Sadly, Kevin passed away in 2004, and it was this tragic event that encouraged her career choice as an Family Care Specialist. As Shannon put it, "I love helping people and putting a smile on someone's face when they need it, especially since I have been in those shoes. I want to be someone's rock and get them through a difficult time."

Today, Shannon is happily married to Dave Eakle and has added his four "beautiful" children (Mary, Christopher, Brian & Janie) to her expansive and loving family. Because "eight is not enough", Dave And Shannon have invited two more members into their home - Samson, a 120 lb. Bernese Mountain Dog and Louie, a 10 lb. Cockapoo.

When Shannon is not watching or following one of her children's sporting events, she can be found cooking, reading, and spending time with her close friends. A photography enthusiast and a fan of both golf and tennis, Shannon readily admits that she would be traveling the world with her family if she weren't serving individuals and families as Family Care Specialist at Calvert & Martin Funeral Homes.
