Ms. Shamaya Shanté Lynn was bom June 19, 2000, in Miami Florida to Alicia Davis and Adrain Lynn.
She was the third oldest of four children.
Shamaya began her formal education at Charles R. Drew Elementary in Miami, Florida. She was an
excellent student and wouldn’t accept a grade lower than a C. She was an A-B student, and her education
was very important to her. In 2008, Shamaya moved to Orlando, Florida with her mom and siblings and
continued her education. She received her high school diploma in the Class of 2019, graduating with
honors and in the top 10% of her class.
Soon after graduation, Shamaya became pregnant with her first son, Veondre Jr. She knew she had to
provide for her son, so she set out goals and achieved them one by one. She started working for Checkers
Restaurant. Later, when she gave birth to her second child, Royale, she gained employment with the
New Balance Shoe Company. This job was perfect for her because it allowed her to work from home and
be home with her children every day. Shamaya made many sacrifices because she wanted her children
to have the best life, she could provide for them.
Shamaya was very active, had a bubbly personality, and enjoyed family gatherings. She meant so much
to so many people. She was a kind, loving and considerate. She was an amazing mother of two sons-
who she absolutely adored!! She was a thoughtful aunt, sister, daughter, granddaughter, and a loyal
friend. Today, as we remember Shamaya, let’s remember her humble, loving, and sensitive demeanor.
The way she was concerned about the feelings of others. Also, how she loved to cook, listen to music,
play dominoes and Uno. Shamaya enjoyed reading and planning play dates with the kids. Of course we
cannot forget how she loved to cook. This was a skill she learned from her grandfather, Philbert Davis,
who taught her everything he knew in the kitchen. They had a special bond that no one could change.
She also had a special relationship with her mom and sisters, who she would FaceTime every day.
Shamaya’s life was cut short, but we are grateful for the 21 years we had and all the memories we made.
