Lilesville - Dalshanna Yvette Tillman Ross “Shonda” was born on December 15, 1980 in Richmond County. She was the daughter of Roberta Cash Tillman and the late Deacon Odell Tillman. She went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, July 17, 2021 at the age of 40.
Dalshanna grew up in church and continued her love for the Lord in her adult life. She confessed Christ and received baptism at Sydney Grove Church in Ellerbe. She began fellowship with King’s Gate in Hamlet in recent years.
Dalshanna was a rare gem which is hard to find. She was kind, loving, humble, intelligent and most of all God fearing. She loved God and faithfully lived in his word. She enjoyed listening to gospel music and praising the Lord.
Dalshanna never stopped praising the Lord. She trusted him through it all and she did it gracefully.
Dalshanna was a licensed cosmetologist and owed and operated Shonda’s Beauty Parlor in Lilesville. She also had a degree in office administration.
One of her greatest loves was spending time with her fur babies, Maxx and Bentley.
