Obituary for Shannon Bloch

Shannon Jessica Bloch
February 26, 1993 – June 4, 2019

Shannon was taken from us suddenly on June 4, 2019 at the age of 26. She is the loving daughter of Dave and Cathy Bloch, Sister and best friend of Trevor Bloch. She is a loving cousin to Kaylee, Mackenzie, Lauren and Kate, niece to Dave Scheklesky (Linda), Larry Scheklesky (Sandy), Tracey Scheklesky (Rick), Christine Bloch (Guy) and Steven Scheklesky (predeceased). She is the first granddaughter to, Ervin Bloch (Jennie), Audrey Bloch (predeceased) and Leo and Ann Marie Scheklesky.

Dr. Shannon Bloch graduated from New York Chiropractic College where she received her Doctor of Chiropractic, Masters of Science in Applied Clinical Nutrition and Webster technique certification. Prior to that, she completed her Bachelors of Science at the University of Waterloo. On May 26th, 2019 she completed her studies by obtaining her certification in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture at McMaster University in Hamilton.

Following her schooling, Shannon began her Chiropractic career in Buffalo NY where she worked at the University of Buffalo and the Buffalo Veterans Affairs Hospital, from there she moved to Northern Virginia where she worked at American Health and Wellness. Shannon moved back to Kitchener in April of 2018 where she found her dream job working as the Chiropractor for Natural Choice Medical Clinic in Guelph, Ontario.

Shannon had a passion for helping others. During her first year of University she volunteered in Cape Town, South Africa where she worked with families with Aids. She returned this past year to work at World Spine Care in Mahalaype, Botswana.

Shannon was passionate about health, fitness and nutrition, but most of all giving back to those around her. Shannon touched so many lives in her short time with us and even more in her passing as she decided to donate her organs and ended up saving the lives of five people and helping many more through the donation of her tissue to the Trillium Gift of Life Network at Hamilton General Hospital.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to Dr Sunjay Sharma, Head Neurosurgeon and Clinic Director of Critical Care Medicine and the entire Intensive Care East nursing team who provided unbelievable medical and emotional support during our time at Hamilton General Hospital.

A private funeral and cremation have already taken place. Friends and family as well as anyone else who’s life may have been touched by Shannon are welcome to join Shannon’s Celebration of Life on Friday, June, 14th 2019 beginning at 6:00 PM at Bingeman Park Ballroom A&B (25 Bingemans Centre Dr. Kitchener, ON). A tribute to Shannon’s life will begin at 7:30 PM.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to World Spine Care Canada https://www.canadahelps.org/en/gcgc/106033 would be appreciated by the family. Donations can be made at the Henry Walser Funeral Home (519-749-8467) or by visiting www.henrywalser.com
