Shamia’s spirit for zeal was brought into this world on November 19, 1982 to Warren Johnson and Ruby Wright. A Beautiful personalized character with an abundance of Love for Everyone. She enjoyed being with Family and Friends. Her personality enticed laughter, genuine kindness, and a FORGIVING Spirit. She loved life. Shamia travelled when time permitted. Knowing Shamia, a raging ocean’s wave could be diverted to a calm pond once a person had a connection with Shamia. Her blindness didn’t stop her from seeing. Her heart so sincere in portraying what’s BEST for everyone in maintaining a relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Before her illness, she promoted Love towards others. Following her illness, the Love became even more aware as her Love for others became highly evident.

Shamia graduated from Northside Senior High. Her Elementary years were initially Christian schools of Fort Smith were a foundation was laid to the realization of “Training up a Child in the way they should go…” She learned from past mistakes, and future promises. God was forever with her through it all. Shamia continued her education at the South Louisiana Community College in Lafayette, LA with a concentration on Technical Studies. She was employed at White House Black Market Retail Clothing in Louisiana and Arkansas.

A life once lived, a soul resting through eternity. Shamia’s smile, laughter, the encouraging words of a full-filled Spirit of Love will live on. She journeys on to Perfect PEACE! We will always Love YOU!

Shamia comforts those in waiting to take their spiritual flight.
