Shannon Danielle Wonsey, age 49, of Jacksonville, FL, passed away on June 13, 2024, in Jacksonville, FL at the Baptist Medical Center with her devoted sister Michelle at her bedside. She was born on July 12, 1974, in Okinawa, Japan, and spent her formative years in various places, including Memphis, TN, Millers Falls, MA, and Orange Park, FL. Shannon was a sweet and loving person who cared deeply for her family, friends, and pets. She has “boldly fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith”. Shannon truly loved God our Creator and was prepared to meet her Lord Jesus.

Our beloved Shannon is survived by her dad David A. Wonsey (aka Pops) and stepmom Sherry, sister Michelle Carole Farrill and her husband Christopher, nephew C. J. Farrill and wife December, nephew Nathan Farrill and wife Carley, niece Madison Farrill and son Kaden, and her life partner Mark Amos, as well as several step brothers, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Shannon has gone on to join her mother Elaine (Noga) Wonsey, who sadly predeceased her thirty years ago.

Shannon attended Doctors Inlet Elementary, graduated from Middleburg High School in 1992, and completed the Master Automotive Service Technician program at First Coast Technical College in St. Augustine, FL. Shannon has been employed as an ASE certified auto parts specialist at NAPA for the past fifteen years. She was known for her conscientious work ethics, dedication, and passion for helping others.

In her free time, Shannon enjoyed caring for her pet dogs, creating recycled art projects, visiting Florida theme parks, attending concerts and festivals, and swimming in the many Florida springs. She was always eager to share the knowledge and enthusiasm of her adventures with others.
