1980 SHARONDA 2024


September 13, 1980 — January 2, 2024

Sharonda Shante' Bentley Garbutt, a beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister, passed away on January 2, 2024. She was born on September 13, 1980, and her loss is deeply mourned by all who knew her. Sharonda was a compassionate individual who dedicated her life to nurturing and caring for her four children, along with her loving husband, mother and father.

Sharonda's journey in the medical field began after she earned an Associate Degree in Business. She found her true calling in nursing, embracing the opportunity to provide care and support to those who needed it most. Her commitment and dedication to her profession were evident in every interaction she had with patients.

Outside of her work as a nurse, Sharonda was a remarkable individual whose vibrant personality touched the hearts of all who crossed her path. She was loving, filled with joy, and had an unmistakable zest for life. Known for her love of laughter and fun-filled parties, she brought happiness to everyone around her. Her warm and welcoming nature drew people close to her effortlessly.

As an outdoor person with a creative streak, Sharonda found solace in the beauty of nature and expressed herself through various artistic pursuits. She had an innate ability to find inspiration in the world around her and used it to create beautiful works of art.

While she excelled professionally and creatively, Sharonda's proudest accomplishment was being a mother. Her children, Delric Crawford Jr., Amara Garbutt, Amina Garbutt, and Ammon Garbutt, stepson, Cam'ron Guinn Garbutt were the center of her world. Sharonda poured unconditional love into their lives and embraced every opportunity to create lasting memories with them.

Sharonda shared a special bond with Ivy Bailey - her beloved grandmother who played a significant role in shaping the person she became. Ivy's influence on Sharonda's life was immeasurable and will never be forgotten.

In this time of grief, we find solace in the enduring love Sharonda shared with her surviving family members. Her loving husband, Eric Alexander Garbutt, supported and cherished her throughout their journey together. Their bond was unbreakable, and his loss is immeasurable.

Sharonda's memory will forever be kept alive by her children, whose lives were profoundly impacted by their mother's love and guidance. She leaves behind a legacy of compassion, strength, and unwavering dedication to her family.

Among those mourning Sharonda's passing are her mother, Pauline Bailey, father William Bentley ( wife Virginia Bentley), sister Tama Bentley, brother Noel Barker, nephew, Amil Barker, mother-in-law, Althea Leslie, uncles Robert Wright and Gary Reynolds, aunts Linda and Phyllis Brice, the entire Bailey family and cousins. She held a special place in their hearts and will forever be missed.

A memorial service to celebrate Sharonda's life will be held on January 12, 2024, at 11:00 am, at the Community Missionary Baptist Church located at 820 West Wintergreen Road in DeSoto, Texas. Family and friends are invited to attend this moment of remembrance.
