SHANNA LEE WILLIAMS

September 27, 1927 — August 6, 2020

Shanna Lee Williams passed away August 6, 2020 in her sleep from natural causes. Shanna was born on Sept. 27, 1927 to the late Lester A. Slough and Annie M. Eubanks Thursby. Her parents were 3rd and 6th generation Floridians and the Slough family was the 6th family to settle in Daytona Beach. Shanna joins her husband of 63 years, the late Maxie Williams of Iron City, GA in heaven. Graveside services for Mrs. Williams will be held on Sunday, August 9, 2020 at 5:00 PM EST at New Enterprise Free Will Baptist Church Cemetery in Iron City, GA with the Rev. Lou Wilder officiating. She is survived by her son Mark Williams, and his wife Kim, and her granddaughter Kimberly Williams. Survivors also include her brother John E. Thursby and his wife Crystal of Ft. McCoy, Florida, and sister Mary Ann Thursby of Deland, Florida. Shanna’s extended family of nephews, nieces, grand nephews and nieces and many cousins are too numerous to list, but she loved them one and all. Shanna was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Daytona for years where she lovingly served as Deacon and the church’s executive secretary. In later years she and Maxie moved to Donalsonville, GA where she attended the First Presbyterian Church of Donalsonville and the Free Will Baptist Church in Iron City. Shanna’s interest in life were diverse. She was an avid amateur archeologist, a genealogist, and transcribed books into Braille for the Library of Congress. She enjoyed drawing, painting, writing poetry, needlework, sewing, all manner of crafts, and listening to both popular and classical music. Shanna also enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid gardener and “fisherwoman”. It is possible that she and her late husband Maxie fished in every lake and stream in Florida during their lives. She was a former member of the Daytona Orchid Society, the Florida Anthropological Society, the Audubon Society of Deland and the Women of the Presbyterian Church in Daytona Beach. Shanna was very proud of and loved her family and the heritage they handed down to her. She delighted in tracing her family tree and the many surprises she uncovered while doing so. Shanna Lee will be missed deeply by all her family but she would say “please don’t weep for me for now I am free”. The family requests that in lieu of flowers that donations be made to the Free Will Baptist Church in Iron City, GA.
