Shannon Lee Blea, Age :45

Nov 22,1974---Sep 02,2020

Shannon Lee Blea, 45, passed away suddenly at her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico on September 2, 2020.


Shannon was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico on November 22, 1974 to Mr. Sammy Blea and Ms. Mary Collins.  She graduated from Santa Fe High School and went on to achieve an associate degree in art from the Santa Fe Community College.


Shannon loved her father Sammy more than anything else in this world. They had a unique and a very special bond with one another. Shannon was a rare diamond.  She loved people unconditionally with great ease.  Her heart was as big as the sky.  She was a selfless human being.  Always putting others before herself.  Shannon loved God and strived to be His faithful servant by serving others.  She was giving and willing to help out her family or one of her many, many friends at a moment’s notice.  Shannon had a passion for all animals and treated her own animals as if they were her children.


She is preceded in death by her grandmother, Abelina Rivera, and her beloved Uncle Larry Cordova. She is survived by her father, Sammy Blea, mother, Mary Collins (Anton), siblings Libby Bennett and Brad Byron (Kate) as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.


Shannon will be missed greatly by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
