We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at R M Ferguson Funeral Service
Shayla Rebecca Lee Nixon 25, of Raleigh, NC passed away suddenly on May 12, 2022. Shayla was born October 30, 1996 in Everett, WA to Lana Nixon (nee Marsman) of Halifax NS Canada and Isaac Nixon of Mullins, SC.
Everyone that knew Shayla knew that she had a heart of gold and would give her shirt of her back to anyone. When Shayla was in middle school, she would give her lunch to students that didn't have enough to eat at home. I would always tell her that I couldn't afford to feed the students of Carroll Middle School but she would always say Mom I can afford to come home and eat, some of these students can't so I would just leave her alone.
Shayla loved all music and loved to dance, she was an avid Tap Dancer and excelled at everything she did. Her greatest love was animals, all kinds especially cats. If Shayla could, she would have become the most famous cat lady. Her most famous thing to do was wear odd socks which drove her Nana crazy. Shayla loved cartoons especially Spongebob that her and her brother would recite all the time. Shayla also played video games, scrabble and Pokemon go.
Shayla had a keen sense of humor, infectious laugh and a smile that would light up the night sky. Shayla will be missed by so many, too many to name.
Shayla is survived by her Mother Lana, Nana Dot, brother Isaac and her Father Isaac(Carol) plus Uncles/Aunts and numerous cousins throughout Canada. If you would like to donate in Shayla's name to the SPCA, that would make Shayla happy.
Memorial Service will be Friday, May 20 from 10am to 12pm
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to RM Ferguson Funeral Service
