Henrietta "Nettie" C. Shealy


Henrietta Crapps "Nettie" Shealy, 78, of Kinards, widow of Milton Shealy, passed away on Sunday, June 18, 2023 at her home after a recent diagnosis of advanced cancer.

She was born on December 19, 1944, in Kinards to the late Tillman Etoy and Mary Etta Ownbey Crapps.

Nettie graduated from Newberry High School and later worked for Newberry County Schools and Laurens County Schools Food Service. Nettie was a wonderful cook and was known throughout the community for her incredible pound cakes and cheese cookies, which she often shared with friends and family. Her kindness and generosity were always evident through her food.

In her free time, Nettie loved searching for antiques and going to yard sales. Her hobbies also included gardening, where she would spend hours tending to her flowers. She enjoyed hunting being outdoors and was always happiest when surrounded by nature.

Nettie was admired by others for her hard work and willingness to help others. She will be greatly missed and we take great comfort in knowing she is with her Lord.

She is survived by daughters, Sherry Davis of Kinards, Wendy (Tommy) Willingham of Joanna and Kathy Buchanan of Newberry; a son, David McCullough of Kinards; a sister, Christi McGuirt of Kinards; brothers, Wayne (Helen) Crapps of Lancaster and Phil (Gerta) Crapps of Kinards; grandchildren, Corey (Amber) Davis, Garrett Davis, Dawson Davis, Brandon (Kayla) Willingham and Thad Buchanan and great-grandchildren, Kinsley and Braxton Willingham.

Samuel Cox.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.  The family will be at the home where they will receive friends Monday, June 19, 2023.  Memorials may be made to Fairview Baptist Church, 4419 Indian Creek Road, Kinards, SC 29355.

Active pallbearers will be Corey Davis, Garrett Davis, Dawson Davis, Brandon Willingham, Chris Veal and Matthew Johnson.
