Shanna Marie Milton, 37, passed away at home with her husband at her side April 29, 2021.

Shanna was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Feb. 16, 1984.

Raised in Harleyville, South Carolina, Shanna joined the Marine Corps in 2004. While in service, she did a tour in Iraq and met her husband, Paul Milton, while stationed in Okinawa, Japan.

They began a family in California while still in the service, and after leaving the Marine Corps in 2012 moved to the Clermont area and had another child.

Diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in 2015, Shanna remained strong and refused to let her illness define her life. She continued to fight cancer while raising three wonderful children, shaping them into beautiful souls that reflected her own kindness and heart. She genuinely believed in the good in all people and was always looking for the brighter side of things. She was an amazing Mother, Wife, Marine and Woman. 

Shanna is survived by Paul Milton, husband; Jessica Milton, daughter; Andrew Milton, son; and Abigail Milton, daughter; as well as parents and siblings in South Carolina and Texas.
