Obituary

Tia Shawon Courtney, 33 of Stafford, Virginia, departed this life on July 11, 2021 surrounded by loved ones. She was born on October 23, 1987 to Charles R. Courtney Jr. of Richmond, Virginia and Sarah D. Stanback of Stafford, Virginia.

In 2004, Tia was blessed with the birth of a beautiful baby girl, her most loved and greatest achievement. She continued her studies and graduated from North Caroline High School in 2005. Tia was a go-getter and a very hard worker. Shortly after graduation, she began a career in management for the warehouse of Merit Logistics in Maryland. After 5 years, she was relocated to Syracuse, New York then to Virginia where she was employed until her passing.

Tia was loved by everyone. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She had an amazing smile that lit up any room. She had an infectious laugh and could make anyone's "bad" day turnaround. She loved being with her family and never missed a moment to get together. The love Tia had for her family and friends was unmatched. She had a big heart and was always willing to provide a listening ear and generous advice.

She was truly a daddy's girl and her mother spoiled her rotten. Her daughters, Jhustyce and Ava were her everything. Her bond with her siblings like her love for them was unconditional. Each played a significant part in Tia's life – Tranisha loved her simply for being Tia; Dereka "Reka" was her go-to person; CJ was her ride-or-die and Derrick was Tia's twin personality. Tia maintained the same love and support for her three bonus siblings.

Tia was preceded in death by her grandmother Alice Bailey. She leaves to cherish many beautiful memories, daughter Jhustyce A. Courtney of Stafford, Virginia, one daughter she raised as her own, Ava Creditt of Frederick, Maryland, father Charles R. Courtney Jr. (Roxanne) of Richmond, Virginia, mother Sarah D. Stanback (Jamel) of Stafford, Virginia, sisters Tranisha Courtney of Centreville, Maryland and Dereka C. Davis (Shawn) of Frederick, Maryland, brothers Charles R. Courtney of Frederick, Maryland, Derrick Q. Courtney (Kayla) of Richmond, Virginia and siblings Jamel & Kayla Stanback of Stafford, Virginia and Taylor Stanback of Baltimore, Maryland, grandparents James and Sarah Samuels of Stafford, Virginia and Richard Courtney Sr (Elsie Mae) of Grasonville, Maryland and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Tia "Kia", "little Alice", we love you, we miss you and hope you are flying high with your grandmother!
