Obituary for Joseph H. Shannon

Joseph H. Shannon, 98, of Reading, PA died February 4, 2021, at the Berkshire Center where he was recuperating after having Covid-19. We are sure his late wife, Margaret E.(Owens) Shannon, met him with open arms, along with his parents, Herbert J. and Martha R. Shannon.

He is survived by his children: J. Michael Shannon (Rosemary) of Mohnton, PA, and Susan C. Moran (Robert) of Derby, KS,
who will carry on his spirit and zest for life. He is also survived by his pride and joy, grandchildren: Keli Stone, Wichita KS, Robert M. Shannon(Val), Sinking Spring, PA and Megan E. (Shannon) Sherman, (Daniel) Kensington, MD; and by his all time favorites, his 7 great grandchildren: Hope, Faith, Grace, Riley, Caroline, Benjamin, and Jack.

In addition to his wife and parents, he is predeceased by his brothers and sisters, John Shannon, Mary Ganster, Bernard Shannon, Rita Delmonico, and Margaret Borkey.

Joe was the President and founder of Hegins Manufacturing Corp and spent his entire life in the garment industry. He was a double Purple Heart recipient from WWII as a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Division.

Our family would like to thank the staff at The Manor at Market Square, Reading Hospital, Encompass Health, and the Berkshire Center for their care and support. Special thanks to Cathy Cammarano for her above and beyond loving care of our father.

Due to Covid-19, services and burial will be held at a later date when it will be safer for us to celebrate his entry into heaven to meet his all loving God. Edward J. Kuhn Funeral Home, Inc, is entrusted with services. Condolences may be expressed at

My family live a cross the street from Mr. Shannon on Argonne Road for most of my childhood. Mr. and Mrs. Shannon was very kind to us and we have fond memories of them. My mom and I loved the gifts of beautiful shirts we received. On behalf of the Krill family, I would like to send
our condolences and love. Yours, Cathy Krill
