Obituary for Una W. Shealey

Una Webster Shealey was born to George and Marie (Epps) Shealey on August 17, 1929, in Opelika, Alabama. As the youngest of eight children, Una cherished her parents and siblings, who showered her with affection. She frequently would reminisce and tell stories about special family occasions. She moved to Pittsburgh with her family as a youngster and as an adult worked in hospital and office maintenance. She was a lifelong fan of Dakota Staton, and she relished talking about the concerts she attended to see Dakota, her favorite jazz artist. In contrast, she was also a big fan of James Brown, the Godfather of Soul. Many would be surprised to know Una had a lovely singing voice, and as a young adult her dream was to go on tour with Dakota. While educational opportunities for Una were limited because of the times, she navigated life’s obstacles with common sense. Her many nieces and nephews affectionately called her Aunt Unie.

Her greatest achievement was giving birth to her three children, Carol Ann, Eugene Jackson, and Mark Anthony. Later on she was delighted to become Grandma Shealey to Kyersten Marie and Evan Drexel. She took great pleasure in bragging about her grandchildren to neighbors. Favorites past times of Una included getting her hair done (styled) and her nails polished red. Una was introverted and enjoyed her own company, but when engaged in conversation Una could be both witty and tart with family and neighbors. Una leaves us with her favorite words of wisdom: “Every tub has to sit on its own bottom.”

Resting at home and knowing she was God’s own, Una quietly answered the heavenly call on May 29, 2019. Una leaves to celebrate her life daughter, Carol Ann (Conrad) Johnson, son, Mark Anthony Shealey, grandchildren, Kyersten and Evan Johnson, many nieces and nephews, great and great-great nieces and nephews, and always understanding, caring, and loving sister-in-law, Grace Shealey. Her son, Eugene Jackson Shealey, preceded her to glory.
