Monique Marie Walcott

Ms. Monique Marie Walcott, age 43, passed away June 15, 2018, at her home in St. Marys, GA.

Ms. Walcott was born on January 6, 1975 in Potsdam, NY, to the late David and Mary Walcott.

Monique attended Saranac High School and was a graduate of Florida State College at Jacksonville. She had recently received her Associate of Arts degree with High Honors and begun a Bachelor’s program in Social Work. Her dream was to provide a safe space for underprivileged youth in the form of after-school programming.

Monique was a generous, caring, and creative member of her community. She was heavily involved in volunteerism at several local agencies including Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). She was also a long-time attendee of St. Mary’s United Methodist Church. She enjoyed running, quilting, reading, and had many other talents including being an excellent cook and homemaker. Being hospitable to others brought her joy.

Above all, Monique’s most important pursuit in life was being a mother. She loved her children fiercely and worked diligently to provide a good life for them. To see her kids thrive meant the world to her. She was known to talk about them often and everyone who knew her knew how proud she was of them.

Ms. Walcott is survived by her daughters, Emma (Shawn) Amorelli-Hawke of Clarence, NY; Winona Amorelli, of Cheektowaga, NY; Olivia Amorelli of Yulee, FL; her son, Benjamin Amorelli of Yulee, FL; her sisters, Robin (Rick) Scott of Bridport, VT, Karen (Tony) Cataldi of Kingsland, GA, and Bethann (Bill) Ryan of Wilmore, KY; her brothers, David Gerald (Ashley) Walcott, Jr. of Jacksonville, NC And Bobby (Julie) Gonyou of Savannah, NY; and beloved friend Lee Lautenschuetz.. She loved her many nieces and nephews with all her heart.

Besides her parents, Ms. Walcott was preceded in passing by her brother, David Scott Walcott, as well as her nephew, Richard Shawn Scott.

A visitation will be held from 10 am to 11 am Friday, June 22nd, 2018 at the St. Marys United Methodist Church in St. Marys, GA. A memorial service will follow at 11 am with Pastor J. Roy White presiding.

In lieu of flowers, friends and family are encouraged to make a donation to National CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), Kingsland Boys Home, or Camden House.

    My little blond lady had been my daughters closest friend as a little girl. They did everything together. I have a lovely picture of them making their first communion together and have many good memories of her and Danielle swinging in a hammock together as my mother sang a song called ” my blond and brunette little ones”. May she rest in our good Lord’s arms surrounded by love…

    Monique and my son dated for a while when he was a senior at Saranac HS. So sad to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

      I met dear sweet Monique just almost a year ago at Band camp. She was so proud of her daughter and her joining the band. We worked together each day for a week and became good band parent friends. One could never ask to meet and know such a sweet kind soul. This has broken my heart for her and her children. I will be in prayer that God will make these kids (both grown ones and younger ones) understand that God will take care of her from this point forward.

    One of the most beautiful people I have ever met. She was an inspiration to a lot of us. I watched her grow as a strong fierce woman, and yet the gentlest soul you ever wanted to meet. She would light up a room with her smile. I loved her and missed her when she left Publix. We lost touch and she will be sorely missed.Rest easy my dear friend, until we meet again!

    I met Monique some time ago and her passing was just made known to me.Monique was in contact with me for some time but devoted much time to her busy children and studies so we lost contact with each other.I am indeed saddened to know Monique is gone from her children whom she dearly loved,she was a most caring,thoughtful young woman who truly had a heart for those in need.Her example of Christs love and compassion will always be remembered, We grieve for ourselves but know of a certainty Monique is in the loving arms of Jesus.

    Monique was a very dedicated college student. I worked with her extensively in the math and writing lab. We became friends. She was an amazing mother. I met her daughter, Olivia and her son, Ben at an author talk at Story and Song bookstore. Olivia and Ben reach out to me if there is anything I can do to assist you. Anne Fowler 904.710.2456,

    I just heard of Monique’s passing. My husband and I are in complete shock. I’ve never met a more genuine soul and will miss her dearly. I met 3 out of 4 of her beautiful children. She was a light in my life.

    Dear Ben-

    I hope that you remember me, your friend David Finocchiaro from Virginia.

    My mom and I just learned of your mother’s death. I am so sad for you and your sisters.

    I also was sad to have lost touch with you since you moved to Georgia. You were a good friend and your mom was so kind.
    She made me feel comfortable at a difficult time in my life. She was a dear friend for my mom too.

    I hope that you find peace and healing and know that you can contact us on my mom’s phone 571-275-2093 or her email if you want to. I hope that you do.

    Your friend,
    David Finocchiaro
    (My mom- Sheri Finocchiaro)
