So saddened by the loss of a good friend. Her smile and happy spirit will be missed by so many people. My thoughts are with her family. Rest In Peace.
So sorry to hear of the passing of Wanda. I will miss her phone calls and friendship over the many many years I had know her. We worked together with the Department of Children & Families for many years. She will be missed dearly. RIP Wanda.
Wanda F. Nixon
Wanda F. Nixon, 74, of Fernandina Beach, passed away on July 10, 2022, after a brief illness. She was born on June 18, 1948, in Jacksonville, FL. She was a 1966 graduate of St. Augustine High School.
Wanda retired from the State of Florida Department of Children and Families where she spent many years dedicating her life to helping people in whatever way possible.
She fought – and won - a battle with breast cancer. Wanda lived a life full of love and joy for her family. Her daughters, Monica LeBoeuf Sites and Glynda Michelle Hyers, blessed her with her grandchildren, Dillon Lee Sites, Jauron Rachad Hyers, and Julia Marie Hyers. And they, in turn, blessed her with 6 beautiful great-grandchildren – Brynlee Grace Sites, Ronnie Wayne Sites, Carlos Mateo Hyers, Colton Hyers-Stone, Savion Hyers, and Kingston Hyers. Anyone who knew her knew how much joy these children brought to her life.
She is also survived by her loving sister, Patti O’Neal McCain and her best friends, Veronica (Red) Brizele, Tina Grant, and Wendy Wells. There are also many, many friends and family who will miss her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Julia Gaines, her brother, Henry W. O’Neal, and son-in-law, Ronnie Sites.
A Celebration of Life Memorial will be held in the Chapel at Oxley Heard on Friday, July 15, 2022. Visitation will be at 2pm and the service will begin at 3pm.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to The Ackerman Cancer Foundation (https://www.ackermancancerfoundation.org/) in Wanda’s memory.
