Obituary

Shania Jesella Waite, 18 years old, of Troy, NY passed away Sunday, December 12, 2021, as the result of a motor vehicle accident.

She was currently enrolled to study at Hudson Valley Community College to become an ultrasound technician. She enjoyed reading, swimming, fashion, shopping, and traveling abroad, especially to Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. She loved spending time with her nieces and nephews and made them a priority. She was patient and always ready to lend a listening ear. Shania was a complete sweetheart with a smile so big and warm it was completely infectious. She was so much fun to be around and loving to everyone she knew. If you were in need Shania was always there to lend a helping hand and a kind word. Generous. Smart. Strong. Beautiful. She will be deeply missed.
