My prayers and thoughts are with you during this difficult time. I worked with Shaun for 20 years in the IT Dept. and she had a smile that could fill a room with joy. She was a co-worker and a beautiful friend that was always there to lend a helping hand.
I pray that God will wipe away the tears of sadness today and replaced with tears of joy knowing we have fond memories of Shaun that shall always be cherished.

I send my sympathy and love to the Ferguson Family. Shaun was my colleague and friend at Ferguson. Shan was one of the greatest talents in the IT department and I'm honored to have worked with her and to have learned from her. I'll miss her spirt and strength.

I am so grateful to have had Shaun as a coworker and friend. She was truly like no other and an irreplaceable talent. Once she retired it was common for many of us to approach work asking ourselves "What would Shaun do?". I'll be forever thankful she welcomed me into her "tribe" as she would say. Sending sympathy and thoughts to the her family at this difficult time. The world has lost one of its best.

Shaun is truly a legend and I am blessed to have worked with her over the past three years. She was so incredibly strong and such a joy to work with.

Brittany Merritt

I am truly honored to have gotten to work alongside Shaun at Ferguson. She was a firecracker whose outlook on problems at work and overall view of life was nothing short of inspirational. She will be missed by her Ferguson family.

Danielle Bowman

Shaun was not only my co-worker but a friend and mentor. I absolutely loved working with her and wondered who would "have my back" when she retired. I knew no one could and would step up for what was right and what they believed like her and I have missed her tremendously every day since. Just today, I used "what would Shaun do" methodology and because of her character and fiery spirit I will carry that and part of her with me forever. I pray that her family finds peace and are able to celebrate her life with smiles and laughs as she wouldn't want it any other way.

With Love,

Misty Harrington

Like so many others at Ferguson, I worked with Shaun for many years and am utterly shattered to hear of her passing. She was not only an invaluable asset to the company but a true friend to all. I know that words alone don't make this any easier, but I hope that reading so many heartfelt condolences show how much she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this difficult time.

Kathy Dennehey

I was devastated to hear of Shaun's passing. I worked with Shaun for 20+ years at Ferguson. She was a great friend and coworker, and was always a joy to be around. Shaun will be dearly missed by me and all of her coworkers at Ferguson. I will be praying for Shaun and her family.

I am truly saddened by the loss of our beloved Shaun. She touched so many lives at Ferguson with her witty humor and approach. She will be sorely missed but will forever live in our hearts and memories. My condolences and thoughts for peace to her loved ones.

From the first day I met her, I liked Shaun and recognized her as a kindred spirit. She was always willing to stand beside you and speak up for what was right, most often with a little snarky humor - my favorite kind. As others have said here, she has been sorely missed at work since she retired and not just for her excellent work. We miss her friendship, loyalty, her sense of humor and so many other things. Never again will I go to Fish Heads without thinking of her. But as much as we miss her here at work, I realize it cannot come close to the void left in your family. I hope that knowing how much she meant to all of us will help to ease your loss at least a tiny bit. I pray that you all find peace and comfort in the difficult days ahead. I admired Shaun and will carry a bit of her with me always. The world is a little darker without her here.

Lori Lambdin

My friend Shaun was such a light that she will be with me in spirit the rest of my life. Shaun was valued by her Tech Center family both as a co-worker and friend. We all admired her work, enjoyed her wry sense of humor and speaking out when it was needed, benefited from her generosity and appreciated her outlook on life. I personally will miss our lunches together. We shared a lot over the years and kept each other sane when all was falling apart around us. She was a rock as well as a rock-star and will be sorely missed. My condolences to her family, but hope they take consolation in the knowledge that she made a difference to a lot of people.
