Shannon Grace Sutton
Shannon Grace Sutton, 45, went into the arms of her Lord and the loving arms of her parents on Tuesday, December 7, 2021.
Shannon was a loving person with a servant’s heart. She loved her family with a passion, worried about them and kept constant check on them. She loved her parents and missed them every day since they left this earth.
Shannon was a teacher at Wayne Preparatory Academy in Goldsboro. She loved the staff and students that she worked with.
She loved all pets especially her two dogs, Sparky and Missy and her cat Maddie.
Most of all she loved her Lord and believed in the power of prayer. She never slept until her devotions were complete and prayers were said.

She could always be found among the great-nieces and nephews playing and she loved them dearly: Cameron Minyard, Briana Applegarth, Carley-Grace Roddy, Maddie Applegarth, Landon Benson, Taylor Benson and Preston Benson.
