Ava Noelle Wade

Ava Noelle Wade became an angel of Heaven on Monday, April 17, 2017. Ava was born on April 10, 2017.

Even though her time on this earth was brief, she made big imprints on the hearts of many. She will always be our “Baby Girl” and she will missed dearly by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her.

Those left behind to cherish her memory, are her mommy and daddy, Aleia and Shaquille; her big brothers, Shaquille Trashaun Wade Jr., Amar’e Trashaun Wade and Keyshaun Cartier Wade; grandparents, Sarah Bailey, Steve Robinson, Ester Gray and Bill Wade; great-grandparents, Ron and Becky Bailey and Steve Robinson Sr.; aunts and uncles, Tazsmine, Jaidah, Daijah, L.A. and Devin Robinson, Percy, James and Arnesha Wade, Delia Henderson, Andre’nyce and William Gray, Trenton Richard and Denzel Anderson; and a host of other loving relatives and many special friends.

She will be held in Heaven by her aunt, Ula Wade; uncle, Marcus Henderson; and great-grandparents, Debra Hale, Sally Burrell, Herman Richard, James Wade and Cora Wade.

Cremation has occurred and private services will be held at a later date.

Memorials may be made to Ava’s family.
