Shelley Peaks


Shelly “DeeDee” Peaks, age 48, loving mother of two passed away peacefully in her home Thursday, June 23, 2022. She was born May 8, 1974 in Columbus, Ohio.

    I am so bless to have the unconditional love of my sweet daughter Deedee. You brought so much joy into my life. I truly are going to miss our weekly phone calls that always end with me in stitches laughing at something you have said. You loved to hear laughter. You once told me that it was better to laugh then to cry over things you can not change. I and your baby brother Ronald Allen Peaks III aka Rap will miss you so so much. Heavenly is full of laughter since you’ve got there. No more pain baby, Mommy loves you. I’m going to miss the end of our phone calls when you always say “love you baby”
