Shannon King Johnston

Mrs. Shannon King Johnston, 49, of Webster County passed away at her residence after a courageous battle against cancer. The family will greet friends at Way-Watson Funeral Home in Buena Vista on Tuesday, December 21, 2021 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. Graveside services will be held at 11:00AM on Wednesday, December 22, 2021, at Weston Baptist Church Cemetery with Rev. Wallace Willis officiating.

Shannon was born February 20, 1972 in Americus, GA to Gary and Blanche McGlaun King. She worked with Phoebe-Sumter Cardiology as an LPN and was dedicated to her work and taking care of others.

Survivors include her husband, James Y. Johnston, Jr. of Webster County; her parents, Gary and Blanche McGlaun King of Webster County; a sister, Leigh Lovelett of Columbus, GA; her niece, Rachel Lovelett of Columbus, GA; a sister-in-law, Susan J. Norton and her husband, Donnie of Lee County, GA; a nephew, Eli Ross Norton, also of Lee County, GA; parents-in-law, Jim and Linda Johnston of Richland, GA; and several other extended family and friends.

My heart is deeply saddened by the news of Shannon's death.
I so enjoyed working with her at Stewart Webster Hospital and getting to know her.
She was a beautiful, kind young woman.
My love and prayers are going up for everyone who knew and loved her.
May God give you his peace, unsurpassed.
