Shannon Adama (a.k.a. Shannon Adams) is the daughter of Ruth, wife of Joseph Adama, and mother of Tamara and William "Willie" Adama.
In 42YR (58 BCH), Adama is killed in a terrorist bombing on Maglev 23 that also claims Tamara's life. The bomber is Ben Stark, a member of the Soldiers of the One. Adama is survived by her husband, her son, and her mother, who lives with the family. She and her husband were both Taurons living on Caprica (CAP: "Pilot").
Her death spurs Ruth to aggressively agonize Joseph Adama in seizing vengeance against the Greystones (CAP: "Rebirth" and "Reins of a Waterfall").
