Shana Watley Obituary

1973 - 2014

Shana Michelle Watley
Shana (Sha-Sha) Michelle Watley, 40 years old, passed away Wednesday March 26, 2014. She joined her lord and savior as well as her grandfather, Thomas Phillips Sr. and Uncle Bubba, Thomas "Pete" Phillips, Jr. and other close aunts and uncles. Once diagnosed with Breast Cancer three years ago Shana never gave up. She never complained, maintaining a brave and cheerful outlook of an optimistic future. Her strong will to live, unwavering faith in God where she maintained her faith as a member of St. Andrews UMC and Hillcrest Baptist Church, and the love and prayers of family, friends, and many supporters carried her through many months of treatment. Yet even throughout her own struggle with Cancer, she reached out to others affected by this disease in many ways. 
Shana was a graduate of Pine Forest High School, class of 1991, where she played softball and was a cheerleader. She went on to obtain a degree from the University of West Florida and became a laboratory technician at Sacred Heart Hospital where she then became a member of the "laboratory family". She was also a member of the Hip Huggers Mardi Gras Crew and a member of the Zumba Girls of Sacred Heart. She was an avid fan of Florida State Seminole football. She was filled with love and compassion throughout her life, her brilliant and infectious smile touched many hearts and souls. 
Sha-Sha is survived by her daughter, Hensley Watley, Mother Brigg Broxson, Father Bill Watley (Mary Watley), Grandmothers Mollie Phillips and Edna Watley, Aunt Jonte Silcox (Travis Silcox), Cousins Nikki Silcox and Kaylan Walden (Ashley Walden), and Great Cousins, Braxton and Colton Walden and Delaney Smith, as well as many other aunts, uncles, cousins, and extended family.
Her family would like to thank the friends, including the Pine Forest Cheerleaders and Hip Huggers for their round the clock vigil and care throughout her treatment. 
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a fund for her daughter Hensley Watley.
