In 1991 Shannon met the love of her life, Ron Gourley. The two quickly fell madly in love, and were married the following year. Their union brought together their five children; with Shannon came her son Chad (Andrea), and with Ron came his sons Aaron (Angie) and Jason (Amber); along with his daughters, Aubrey, and Carolinda (JD). After a year and a half of marriage, Shannon and Ron welcomed their son Garrett into the family.
