Shelia Burgess Nelson

August 3, 1961 — October 5, 2020

Shelia Nelson, 59, of Oak Hill, WV, went home to be with the Lord after a sudden illness on October 5, 2020.

Shelia was the daughter of Eva Marie Evans and the late Harry Burgess of Oak Hill, WV. She is preceded in death by her son, Christopher Aaron Johnson; step-father, Houston Lee Evans; and grandparents, Leon and Elsie Noble.

Shelia had a smile that would light up any room. She was a very special woman and made a great impression on everyone around her with her kindness and compassion. She was an amazing mother and grandmother. She also loved spending time with her friends and family, and was always sure to lift them up and keep them laughing.

Left to cherish her memory are her mother, Eva Marie Evans; daughter, Christina Marie Acord; grandchildren, Courtney Acord, Alexavier Acord, and Christopher Michael Johnson; sister, Tammy Arrington; niece, Stephanie Phillips; great-niece, Sidney Phillips; great-nephew, Eli Phillips; and other siblings, family members, and friends and co-workers that became family. Sheila will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.
