Darcie Adams Obituary
On September 18, 2023, Darcie Marie Adams, at just 15 years of age, departed from this world to her heavenly abode. She breathed her last in the nurturing embrace of her home in Glen St. Mary, Florida, surrounded by those she loved and who adored her. Born in Jacksonville, Florida, on June 25, 2008, Darcie was the cherished daughter of John and Stacie Johnson Adams.
Her life, though brief, was a tapestry of vibrant colors. Darcie was a lifelong resident of Baker County and was pursuing her 10th-grade education at Baker County High School. With an effervescent personality that could outshine the sun, Darcie had the innate ability to fill any room with laughter and joy. Her wit, her sass, and her firecracker spirit were magnetic, making her an unforgettable presence wherever she went.
Darcie had a profound love for animals; her adoration was particularly reserved for her beloved dogs, Ann and Buddy. When she wasn’t at home with her pets, Darcie channeled her boundless energy into her athletic pursuits. She was an avid hunter and a promising talent in travel volleyball, playing for the Gainesville Junior’s Orange 15U team.
Her penchant for collecting stuffed animals was well-known among her circle. Each one of these stuffed toys was as unique and beautiful as Darcie herself. But her interests didn’t just stop there. She had a fondness for blankets, was rarely seen without her cozy fuzzy socks, and had a quirky love for anything designed with cow-prints.
Faith also held a significant place in Darcie’s life; she was a lifetime member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. However, it was her undying love for her family and friends that truly defined her. Darcie reveled in the moments spent with her nieces, nephews, and her boyfriend, Memphis Walker, cherishing each instant as if it were a precious jewel.
Tragically, Darcie was predeceased by her brothers, Matthew and Beau Adams, as well as her paternal grandparents, Jack and Audrey Adams, and her maternal grandfather, Jimmy Johnson. She leaves behind a grieving family—her loving parents John and Stacie, her brothers John Edward, Corey Logan, and Dalton James, and sisters Ashley and Lillian “Lili” Anne. Her maternal grandmother Kathy Johnson, along with many nieces, nephews, and a close-knit circle of friends and relatives, also survive her.
A celebration of Darcie’s extraordinary life will be conducted on September 22, 2023, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, presided over by Father Martin Raj. The family will host a visitation on September 21, 2023, from 5:30 to 8:00 pm at V. Todd Ferreira Funeral Services Chapel, where a Rosary service will commence at 5:00 pm. Following the church service, Darcie will be laid to rest at Macedonia Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make a donation to a cause that reflects Darcie’s spirit and values. To leave your condolences or share a memory of Darcie, please sign the family’s online guest book at www.ferreirafuneralservices.com.
Her absence leaves a void that words cannot describe, but her indomitable spirit will continue to live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
