I'll always remember the first time I met Rachell Shealy. I was visiting the Oakdale Church of God and was sitting alone on a pew. Within minutes while waiting for the service to begin, a lady approached me and introduced herself as Rachell Shealy. She talked a few seconds then invited me to come and sit with her during the service. Needless to say we became friends.
Rachell has touched my life through her love for God. One thing about Rachell, she was a determined lady.
Down the road, that determination resulted in a ministry that still continues to this day. She was instrumental in Oakdale Church starting a sign language class.
To this day, this ministry is beyond sign language. Lives are continuing to be changed and blessed due to a lady that was obedient, determined, and committed to follow the Lord.
Even tho' she has left us in body, her faithfulness to God is still changing lives today.
Rachell was a committed Christian and loved the Lord and shared her love for the Lord boldly.
I will always remember Rachell as a friend and her love for family and her Lord.
So sorry for your loss. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I had quite a few memories of Nanny, on family occasions. She loved spending time with the family. I will never forget the Christmas she wrapped a baby doll and gave to me. I thought it was Brandy's but the joke was on me! See Rachell in Heaven!
