Funeral set for Canadian killed in Mexico honeymoon fall
Ottawa-area woman Shannon Amy Guy, 24, had two young daughters
The funeral for an Ottawa-area woman killed while on her honeymoon in Mexico is scheduled for Monday.
Shannon Amy Guy, 24, died after the glass panel on a balcony at the Oasis Tulum resort collapsed on Oct. 16. Guy was posing for a photo with another Canadian couple while her new husband, Paul Guy, was behind the camera.
A visitation is scheduled for Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Alan R. Barker Funeral Home in Carleton Place, Ont.
The funeral is scheduled for Monday at 1:30 p.m. at the funeral chapel.
The couple was enjoying the first day of their honeymoon when the incident happened.
Paul Guy's mother, Darlene Guy said the couple and Shannon fell to the ground, while Paul Guy was taken to hospital, as well.
Woman also killed in incident 2 years ago
Mexican police said a similar incident at the same hotel killed a woman two years ago. CBC News also learned the wing where the couple was staying had not passed safety requirements.
The wing, which includes eight rooms, was then closed for a safety inspection.
Darlene Guy said the couple had been living together for years before they married. Their two daughters, Kaydence and Harmony, are seven months old and three years old.
Shannon had been on maternity leave from her job at Sinders Bridal House in Carleton Place, Ont., just southwest of Ottawa. She also studied community and justice services at Algonquin College in Ottawa and went to high school in Carleton Place.
Paul Guy works at The Brick furniture store in Carleton Place where his colleagues have collected cards and donations for the family.
The family is also asking people to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society in Shannon Amy Guy’s name.
