Our Family Serving Your Family For More Than 40 Years


Plan Ahead


February 22, 1971 –
 April 13, 2022


Shannon was born to Larry and Vanda Mikles on February 27, 1969. After graduating from Lakeview Centennial High School in 1989, Shannon started her life of service. Shannon’s journey brought her to serve under multiple missions around the world. Her passion for missions drove her until her liver disease would not allow her to continue. There was no one more dedicated than Shannon in her belief in what God called her to serve.


In 2007, Shannon was diagnosis with NASH (Non-Alcoholic Cirrhosis of the Liver). Her journey with liver disease was a long and hard-fought battle. Shannon was a true warrior, including fighting and overcoming Cancer. In 2012 she began her battle with active end stage liver disease along with several other health obstacles. In June of 2018 Shannon received a blessing from God in the form of a liver transplant. This gift allowed her to continue her calling through mentoring, volunteer work and discipleship. After years of setbacks and obstacles, Shannon made the courageous decision that she was ready to rest. Shannon spent her final days being well cared for and loved at Faith Presbyterian Hospice Center surrounded by family and close friends when she crossed over to be with God. We find peace knowing that she is dancing and singing, in her whole and healthy body, in heaven.


Shannon was known for her servant’s heart. She gave herself freely and loved to help those in need. She will be dearly missed by all those whose lives she touched.


Shannon is preceded in death by her Father, Larry Mikles,; Grandparents: JC and Donia Shortnacy; Joe Bill Mikles; Anna Moyer; Uncle Gene Shortnacy; Jim Crawley; Cousins Jerry and Jonathan Shortnacy.

Shannon is survived by her Mother, Vanda Mikles of Rowlett, TX; Brother, Lance Mikles of Rowlett, TX; Step Sisters: Dana Salsman (Marty) of Josephine, TX, Daniel Driggs (Tony) of Josephine, TX; Grandmother: Terry Mikles of Sapulpa, OK and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.


A celebration of life will be held at 11:00 on Saturday, April 23, 2022 at New Hope Christian Church, 1100 W Brown Street in Wylie.


In lieu of flowers, a donation can be given on Shannon’s behalf to one of the many charities for which she dedicated her life: Garland Dream Center, Youth With A Mission (YWAM), S.O.U.L. Church Open Air Ministry Outreach.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
