Shannon Lynn Humphreys, 68, of Virginia Beach, passed away peacefully with her family present Tuesday, March 19, 2019. Born in Fayetteville, she was the daughter of the late James and Joan Humphreys.

She lived in Henrico and retired from the public library system of Richmond in 2014 after 29 years of service. She obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Old Dominion University and obtained a Master’s Degree in Library Science from Ball State University and the University of Kentucky. Her love of books, her Irish heritage and Kentucky basketball was only exceeded by her love for her two Shelties, Penny and Caleigh.

Ms. Humphreys is survived by her sisters, Colleen H. Orman, and her husband, John E. Orman Jr., of Virginia Beach and Mavourneen H. Catron of Columbus, Georgia; nieces, Katie L. Orman of Virginia Beach, Shae Khadoo, and her husband, Shaun Khadoo, and their children, Alex and Natalie of Savannah, Georgia, Lisa Bassett and her husband, Eliot Bassett, and their children, David and Annemarie of Fort Benning, Georgia, and Elizabeth A. Catron of Americus, Georgia.

A private ceremony will be held with family to honor our beloved Shannon. The family requests donations be made to The Heart Fund in lieu of flowers.
