JACOBY ANTHONY ODOM-SHANNON IN LOVING MEMORY PRECIOUS CHILD “Dearest Jacoby, please know that our greatest blessing was having you.” Heaven’s gain was our loss when our angel was called by our Lord. He is being greeted in Heaven by his grandma Ruby Lorene Robinson and great-grandma Rosa Faye Martin. Jacoby “Bubbie” Anthony Odom-Shannon, precious baby boy of Melvin Leroy Odom and Tasheena Cheyenne Shannon, went to go be with our Lord on January 1, 2016. Jacoby was full of energy with bright smiles, he loved his kitty cats, doggies, balls and lots of hugs. He brought so much joy and laughter to all the lives he touched. He is our angel and will forever be in our hearts. Jacoby was born on August 20, 2013 in Ukiah, California. He is survived by his parents Leroy Odom and Tasheena Shannon, siblings Ciara Shannon and Jaedon Odom. He is also survived by his grandparents, Leon Crowell of Arkansas, Gary Robinson of Willits, Marvin Shannon of Colorado, Fern Hoaglen of Covelo and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and family friends. The memorial service will be held at the Anker-Lucier Mortuary in Willits, California on Thursday, January 14, 2016 at 1 p.m. Followed by a graveside service in Ukiah at the Russian River Cemetery on Low Gap Road. There will be a gathering at Trinity Baptist Hall in Ukiah, California. Thank you to everyone that has sent prayers and support to the family.
