Rotterdam - Shannon LaMora Magnano, 32, died unexpectedly on Monday, August 2nd, 2021.

Born in Niskayuna, Shannon is the daughter of Kelly Peck Carlson and the late James J. LaMora.

She attended Schalmont High School and Schenectady County Community College.  Shannon was passionate about hospitality and providing excellent customer service which was evident through her work as a Bartender and Waitress at several area business locations and was most recently a partner at the River Road House in Rotterdam Junction. Shannon enjoyed fishing, was an avid Boston Red Sox fan and loved her cats, her “babies”; Chevy, Shelby, Challenger and Nova. Her favorite color was velocity yellow, which is no surprise based on her bright, bubbly and energetic personality.

She is survived by her husband, Christopher J. Magnano of Princetown, her mother and step father; Kelly Peck Carlson (Philip) of Pattersonville, sisters; Jessica Bond of Pattersonville and Felicia Naze of Rotterdam, grandmothers; Barbara “Amma” Peck and Virginie Pasquariella as well as cousins and many loving friends.

Funeral services will begin on Friday at 10 am at the funeral home.
