Obituary

Revelation 21:3 " And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God."

Ms. Wanda Michelle Rankin Sturdivant

Ms. Wanda Michelle Sturdivant, 43, passed away at Forsyth Medical Center, Silas Creek Parkway, Winston Salem, at 6:30 pm, following an extended illness. Chelle Chelle, as she was affectionately called, was the daughter Carolyn Rankin Roberts and the late Willie Paul Davis, Sr. She was born in Iredell County on January 9, 1977.

She was a 1995 graduate of South Iredell High School in Statesville, North Carolina. She also attended East Carolina University College. She became a member at Mt.

In addition to her father, Willie Paul Davis, Sr., she was also preceded in death by step-father, Bradley L. Nesbit; grandfather, Joe Dewitt Rankin.

Michelle was a true warrior in her own right, Michelle served with me on the Deacon Board and she always was willing to offer suggestions, work and wanted to make a difference by supporting her Church Family. I am truly heartbroken and will miss you so very much, you always had a beautiful smile and no matter what you were going through you continued to smile and offer a hand if needed.Since knowing you what I witness was your strength, your love for your children and family and leaving this world with a beautiful legacy for Kaiya and Jayden to honor you and to do amazing things, Fly high Michelle you are now pain free, the Heavenly Angels are waiting to welcome you home.

I have so many memories of Michelle, but my favorite is when she and her family came to my house to take care of me when I had pneumonia. Michelle came charging in my house spraying Lysol all over the place, she said she was going to get rid of the germs. Such a beautiful person, May she Rest In Peace.

Then Jonathan said to David, "Tomorrow is the New Moon feast. You will be missed, because your seat will be empty. 1 Samuel 20:18
Carolyn,
I can only imagine the pain that you are feeling right now, I can only imagine what your daughters are feeling right now (the loss of their father less than a month ago) I can only imagine the devastation that Chelle’s children are feeling. I do know that the pain is real and that God will be with you through this new season. Know that you have a host of witnesses praying for you.
Love You,
Denise ❤️🤗😢
