Shannon LuAnn Boor was born on February 13, 1974 at Girard Kansas. She grew up in several towns throughout her childhood and high school career. In 1992, she married Nathan Bara and in 1993 she had her first child, Andrew. They lived in Honolulu, Hawaii. The later divorced and she moved to Ukiah, Oregon. While living in Ukiah she met Doug Boor and his son, Lane on a blind date at Lehman Hot Springs.
Soon after, they moved into the log cabin on Rhea Creek for a short period of time. In July of 1997, Shannon, Doug and family moved down the road into the family ranch home.
In 1999, a new and defining chapter in her life began. In February, she started work at what is now known as community Counseling Solutions. Over the 20+ years, she helped build this company from one office with eleven employees to what is it today, offices in five counties and over 120 employees. On April 23, 1999, she and Doug married in Heppner, Oregon. In May she was certified as an EMT and volunteered for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) for the next twenty-one years. Five years later their daughter, Kylie was born, and seventeen months later her third son, Ty, was born. During this chapter of her life, her many families were forming. This consisted of her biological family, EMS family, CCS family, her newly formed family with Doug, her ever growing family of friends, and of course, her Heppner Mustang family.
In the fall of 2013, she enrolled at Blue Mountain Community College. Four years later, while working full time, raising a family, and never missing her children’s games, she graduated in the spring of 2017 with a Bachelor of Business from Eastern Oregon University with summa cum laude honors. Also, during this time, Shannon and Doug purchased an adjoining ranch where they moved into their new home and where she lived until her passing.
This was just a small portion of the accomplishments Shannon had throughout her life. She received many awards during her time at CCS and as an EMT. However, her greatest accomplishments lay in the lives she touched. She cared for, helped, and loved everybody. She loved her kids, she loved your kids, she loved her friends, and all of her families. She just loved.
