MaShayla Lyn Conner, born July 14, 1995, was called to Heaven on December 27, 2020, as the result of a car accident. MaShayla is survived by her parents, Heather (Brian) Butts, Marcel Conner and Stephaine Bailey; her little brother, Kai Conner, her little sissy, Willow Butts; her grandparents, Nancy Bell, Jerry Vincent, Louis (Jackie) Conner, MariJane Schuler,Terri and Kenny Butts, as well as numerous Uncles, Aunts, Cousins, Friends and her dog Betty.

MaShayla lived life to the fullest; her nickname was MaShayla “Mishap” or to her parents and family, Bear. Her friends called her Shay or Shay Shay. Her beautiful smile and laughter were contagious and it filled a room whenever she was present. If you met her once, you never forgot her and if you did have the privilege of knowing her, sure enough every time you saw her MaShayla would greet you with her beautiful smile and a great big hug. MaShayla was always there for anyone and everyone that needed her; her heart was bigger than her head at times. MaShayla would always go out of her way to make someone’s day and to put a smile on their face. She put so many people’s needs in front of her own; she touched so many lives in countless ways.
While life handed her ups and downs and lots of detours along the way, she was a fighter and she faced life’s challenges head on and never backed down. MaShayla loved to spend time with her family and friends. She loved to fish, scratch lotto tickets, do adult coloring, and enjoyed spending time outdoors and taking her dog on car rides.
MaShayla will be greatly missed by many, but she wouldn't want all who loved her to be sad. She lived life her way. “Mishap is what they call me”.
“Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.”- Nicholas Sparks
Rest in Heaven sweet girl, until we see you again….
