Shellyan S. Daley

November 5, 1983 - August 29, 2021

Shellyan S. Daley, aged 37,  left this world suddenly on Sunday, August 29, 2021 at her home in Virginia Beach. Shellyan was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica to Velta Foster and Delroy Daley.

In the midst of life setbacks, she always aimed for excellence. She further sharpened her skills in hotel management and even as massage therapist. She worked at Westin Hotels as a general manager for over three years.

Throughout her lifetime she nourished people around her with love, faith, kindness, encouraging words and her uncanny ability to reach others in a deep and positive way. This is especially true for her first child, Sheldon Smith and her bundle of sweetness, Shalisa Lewis, whom she worked relentlessly to care for and provide for.

Her family meant everything to her, she enjoyed simple pleasures like chatting with friends and family, shopping and traveling.

Shellyan is survived by her parents, her children, four sisters namely, Nadine Roduck, Marvelette Maylor, Novelette Maylor, Terryann Daley, her two brothers, Marlon Daley and Kevan Brown, her grandchild, Makari Moore, many nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

Family, friends, and others whose lives were touched are invited to Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5033 Rouse Drive, Virginia Beach, from 1p.m.-3 p.m. on Tuesday, September 14, 2021. A graveside service will be held Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at 1:00 pm at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens,  6329 E Virginia Beach Blvd, Norfolk, VA 23502  to reminisce, grieve, and support each other.
