Easter Saturday 25 March 1978 Shannon and her boyfriend Geoff Murray, 20 years old headed to the beach and Angourie Blue Pool, 62 miles from home (a natural fresh water pool on edge of ocean) for the day.
On their way “home” the road was wet from rain. Geoff being an inexperienced driver swerved to miss a kangaroo hopping across the road, lost control of the car. A car driving the opposite direction hit their car, killing Geoff instantly and Shannon, sustaining a skull fracture, died within several hours and just before her parents Norm & Fay Jeanne reached the very small hospital.
