Sunee Wood Obituary, Death – Our dearly departed Sunee, who was snatched from us much too soon by an aggressive and unusual kind of pneumonia, has passed away. It is with deep sorrow that we share this news with you. Her parents, Dr. John R. Wood and Bonnie D. Wood, welcomed her into the world on July 29, 1993 in Ogden, Utah. Sunee was a person who exemplified the meaning of her name. She shone like the most brilliant star. The combination of her charisma, her shine, and most importantly, her love, would make those around her feel acknowledged and cherished. She was stunning on the outside and the inside.
In 2012, Sunee received her diploma from Weber High School. After that, she received a bachelor’s degree in Strategic Communication from the University of Utah, where she also participated in the Pi Beta Phi sorority and was a member of the organization. She was a devoted supporter of the Ute team. Sunee cherished her time spent working in the hospitality industry, and her customers and coworkers regarded her in the highest regard. She has worked as a server and manager at a number of restaurants, some of which include Brio in Salt Lake City, LTH in Oceanside, California, and most recently Slackwater (SLC).
An outstanding individual like Sunee is nearly impossible to describe in a few short sentences. She was generous and sincere in her expression of love. Spending time with her was an experience like no other. She made us laugh out loud! She would engage in ludicrous dances, make inane comments, and belt out her songs at the top of her lungs. She had the loudest laugh, frolic, and yell in the room, and by the time the night was over, she frequently rendered her voice hoarse. When Sunee was in the picture, things took a turn for the better. Regardless of what she was doing, she was completely herself the entire time.
Sunee have an innate talent for sports. A shining example of excellence in each of their sports, both on and off the field. She was a star on the softball and soccer teams in high school. Sunee was a talented athlete, but she had a history of injuries due to her accident-prone nature, as seen by her scars. Sunee was an outdoor enthusiast who also enjoyed skiing (even though she always complained that her hands were too cold). Sunee was the kindest person you’d ever meet, and she genuinely cared about other people. She had a powerful right hook despite her tomboyish appearance. She was courageous while retaining her warmth, and she never shied away from speaking up for herself.
It is difficult for her parents to adequately convey how much they will miss their daughter Sunee. They were very close to one another. Sunee was completely honest with them, and they continued to stand by her side no matter what. She and her niece Amiya shared similar values and beliefs. Amiya shared her thoughts, saying, “Sunee always inspired me to be myself, and she made me feel joyful and protected.” Sunee was a devoted pet parent, and her canine companion, John John, held a special place in her heart. They were completely devoted to the affection they shared for one another.
This terrible occurrence should prompt us to reflect on the things that are genuinely significant. Sunee instilled in us the importance of enjoying life to the fullest and being present in each and every moment. Her passing was a lesson for us to treasure the people we care about and to never take the valuable time we have with them for granted. She continues to be the bright spot that brings her family closer together than ever before. Sunee, each and every one of us is going to miss you very much.
