“And all wept, and bewailed her; but Jesus said, weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.” (Luke 8:52)
CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF NAQUISHA S. SHAMBRY
Naquisha Siobhan Shambry, Beloved mother, daughter, and sister, departed her earthly life here and entered the presence of God as a result of a tragic vehicle accident on Saturday, January 3, 2020, at forty years of age. She was born on September 7, 1979, in Norfolk, Virginia, the daughter of Mrs. Karen L. Shambry and the Reverend Doctor Edward R. Shambry, Jr., of Norfolk. Naquisha was predeceased by her maternal grandfather, Deacon Freddie Lee Lindsey, by her paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Edward (and Lula) R. Shambry, Sr., by her brother, Mr. Darryl J. Shambry, by her godmother, Missionary Annie O’Neal, and by three aunts (Wilhelmina Brown, Charlene Lindsey, and Darlene Privott) and by three uncles (Melvin Johnson, Calvin Lindsey, and Leonard Lindsey).
Naquisha was a graduate of Norfolk Preparatory High School and later trained as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). She was employed as a dedicated member of the staff at the Ashland Convalescent Center and as a Home Healthcare Aide for a local agency. She was a faithful, hard worker and a pride to her profession. Naquisha was professed faith in Jesus Christ at an early age and was a member of the Saint Stephen Baptist Church.
Naquisha will be lovingly remembered by her five children – sons, Shatique, Unique, and James and by daughters, Zaaniyah and Auria. She is also survived by her parents and by one sister, Ms. Phylicia Shambry and by three brothers, Mr. Jaleel Shambry, Mr. Troy (TJ) Shambry, and Mr. James Walker. In addition, Naquisha is survived by her maternal grandmother, Mrs. Gladys Lindsey; two god sisters, Mrs. Dezada Gatling and Mrs. Lenora Carr; five aunts, Mrs. Deborah Johnson, Mrs. Gladys Lee, Mrs. Isolene Lindsey, Mrs. Marilyn Eli, and Mrs. Denise Lindsey; and by seven uncles – Misters Gary, Jesse, Freddie, and Charles Lindsey, Mr. Larry Privott, Mr. John Eli, and Mr. Robert Lee. She is also survived by three great uncles, two great aunts, and by a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Naquisha will be dearly missed and loved by all who knew her. She was described as a wonderful mother, a loving daughter, and the best big sister to her siblings.
Naquisha touched many hearts and lives while here on earth and, although it is hard to imagine the world without her, it is easy to imagine heaven rejoicing because she is there. She lives in heaven in the sight of God. We believe Jesus’ declaration: “She is not dead, but sleeps.”
A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, January 18, 2020, at St. Stephens Baptist Church, Milford, Virginia, with Rev. Michael L. Ferguson officiating.
