Donna "Suzanne" St. John
July 4, 1950 – July 18, 2020
Donna "Suzanne" St. John, 70, of Panama City, FL, peacefully and surrounded by her loving family, went to her eternal, heavenly home with Jesus on Saturday, July 18th.
She was born July 4, 1950 to O'Dessa Maude (Blackman) Tharp and Harold Eugene Tharp in Panama City, FL. In 1971, she married Charles William "Bill" St. John. Together, they raised two daughters in Panama City. She was a teacher in the Bay County School System at A.D. Harris and Mowat Middle School for over 33 years. A member of Emerald Coast Fellowship and the DeMoss Bible Study group, she loved her church family dearly. Most of all, she treasured time with her family.
Suzanne will be remembered by her family and friends for her solid faith and love for the Lord, her beautiful smile, hospitality, servant's heart, kindness, and generosity.
She is survived by her husband, Bill St. John; her daughter, Rachel (Jason) Boisvert of Niceville, FL; her daughter, Joy (Ken) Whithaus of Tallahassee, FL; her grandchildren, Olivia and Rebecca Boisvert and Will, Caroline, and Andrew Whithaus, her brother Dannie Ray (Patricia) Tharp of Valley Grande, AL, and many other precious family members and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Harold and Dessa Tharp.
A small family service was held in Tallahassee on July 20th and a celebration of life service in Panama City is planned for a later date to be announced.
