Remembering the Life of
Ms. Charissa LaShea Hairston
A smile for all, a heart of gold,
one of the finest this world could hold,
Never selfish, always kind,
these are the memories she leaves behind…

Ms. Charissa LaShea Hairston, beloved daughter of April Michelle Walker and Darrell Lamont Hairston, was born in North Wilkesboro on July 20, 1991. She departed this life on August 3, 2020, in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Shea, as she was affectionately called, attended Wilkes Central High School in Wilkesboro and enjoyed having fun with her family and friends, especially teasing her cousins and siblings. She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Deborah Ann Walker.

She leaves to cherish and remember her life, her mother, April M. Walker of the home; her father, Darrell L. Hairston of Columbus, Ohio; siblings, Shayla Hairston “Baby Sister” of Wilkesboro, Chris Weary, Jr. and Chrisna Weary, both of West Palm Beach, Florida; niece, Gabriella Brown of Charlotte; nephew, Gabe Brown of Charlotte, NC; her cousins, Corey Smith, Jazmine Brown and Jada Walker; aunts and uncles, Stephanie Walker, Cynthia Jones, Robert Hairston and Don Hairston; and a host of other relatives and many dear friends.

It seems so unreal that you are gone
When just the other day
You walked and talked and laughed with us
Then suddenly slipped away
Your peaceful smile, your joyful laugh
How sweet the memory still
Your parting left an aching void
This world will never fill.

Shea had a beautiful soul and a heart of gold filled with so much love. She would always have my back and never pass judgement. She was silly and could always keep a smile on my face there was never a dull moment while around her. She will truly be missed, until we meet again rest easy beautiful angel baby!!
