Shelby Mabry Obituary, Death – On Thursday, November 24, 2022, SHELBY JEAN MABRY passed away at Westwood Center. She was 76 years old. She considered the town of Bland, which is located in Virginia, to be her home. She was born in Oakvale, West Virginia on September 23, 1946, but both of her parents, George Akers and Pearl Akers had passed away before her birth. She was the only child of George and Pearl Akers. She was the child that they had. Shelby was a woman of incredible bravery and unwavering strength throughout her life. She did not remarry after the untimely death of her husband at a young age; as a result, she was responsible for the upbringing of her children on her own.
Being at home was more convenient and comfortable for her. She found that her homegrown tomatoes were the best, especially the ones she had grown herself. She was a licensed cosmetologist, and while she found cutting hair to be very enjoyable in her line of work, she absolutely detested having any kind of facial hair. Prior to Shelby’s birth, both of her parents, George Earldrew Akers and Nannie Pearl Mayberry Akers, as well as her husband, Argle Paul Nunn, her great-grandson, Owen Frye, and three of her brothers, Larry Akers, George Akers, and Oliver Akers, all passed away. Shelby’s birth came after the deaths of all of Shelby’s other relatives. Shelby is the only member of the family to have survived.
The people who are able to carry on her legacy are her children, Timothy Nunn and Barbara Nunn, Donna Underwood and Michael Underwood, and Tracy Nunn; her grandchildren, Pamela Nunn, Michelle Underwood, David Underwood, Shay-Ann Nunn, and Mary Nunn; her great-grandchildren, Natalie Hoops and Levi Hoops, Emily Jackson, Luke Jackson, and Autumn Frye; and her sisters, Betty Hebbert and Shirley Meadows. They will always and forever carry her spirit with them in their hearts.
They will never forget her. After Shelby’s passing, her body was cremated as she had specifically requested to be done so in her instructions. A memorial service will be held at the Wilderness Creek Church of God on Sunday, December 4, 2022, at one o’clock in the afternoon, and Pastor Philip Buttery will preside over the ceremony.
