Dea Shannon King who was born at Halifax Hospital on June 8, 1970, passed away peacefully after a long ill- ness on May 6, 2015, surrounded by family and friends. Shannon was a lifelong resident of Volusia County, who at- tended Seabreeze High School. She was known for her huge heart, great love for people and animals, and for her fierce independence. A unique character in every way, Shannon was athletic and creative and in re- cent years enjoyed herself by haunting garage sales. Shannon is survived by two children: Samantha Lee Moore, Daytona Beach and Michael Jasper Bowman, Redondo Beach, California; her mother: Carol Ann Phillips, Bunnell; her father; Jeffery Lynn King, Ormond Beach; three sisters: Heather Michelle Dukas, Sarasota, Stephanie King Murphy, Daytona Beach, Elendea Rose King, Ormond Beach; and one brother Nolan Major King, Miami. Her stepfather Lexington Phillips of Bunnell, her stepmother Elizabeth King of Ormond Beach, hers brothers-in-law Mike Murphy and George Dukas and nieces Aisley and Sydney Dukas, are among the many she cherished. A Memorial Service is planned for Saturday, May 16 at 11:00 a.m. at Ormond Beach Presbyterian Church, 105 Amsden Road, Ormond Beach. In recognition of Shannon's preferred treat, please bring a jar of peanut butter to donate to Halifax Urban Ministries. The Family suggests donations to the Halifax Humane Society in lieu of flowers.

    I am so sorry about the loss of your beloved Dea. Please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort is what the Bible says at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4. In these verses we see that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our loved ones and that he is going to do away with all causes we have for suffering including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well.

    I just want to offer my deepest condolences to Dea's family. It's hard to lose someone.

    My father was taken by Cancer a while ago. But one of the things that has helped me to cope is to focus on the Bible's promise that God will bring our loved ones back to life very soon (Acts 24:15).

    During that time, the Earth will be a paradise, where we won't have to worry about illness any more. Isaiah 33:24 says that, "No resident will say, 'I am sick.'"

    I hope your family can find some comfort during this difficult time.
