Dakota Serenity Sharpe of Olin, N.C., departed our world to be with her Heavenly Father on May 26, 2021.
Dakota, who was affectionately called “Chonka,” was born January 10, 2020, in Wilkes County, N.C. She was the daughter of Michael Roy William Sharpe and Layla Dawn Huffman. Dakota was smart and beautiful, and she loved to watch Cocomelon. Dakota enjoyed the simple things in life like Cheerios and Vanilla Wafers, but she really hated applesauce. Nothing compared to her love of Cheetos and pizza. Dakota loved being outside and playing on her wagon and being pushed on her swing by her mother.
Dakota leaves behind to cherish her memory her loving parents, Michael Sharpe and Layla Huffman; her grandparents, Peggy and Michael Sharpe of Olin, and Norma Huffman of Wilkesboro; an aunt, Jennifer Andrade of Statesville; uncles, Fernando Andrade of Statesville, Hayden Huffman of Wilkesboro, and Mason Huffman of Wilkesboro; and a cousin, Nathalia Andrade of Statesville.
Dakota was preceded in death by her grandfather, Steven Huffman and a cousin, Sophia Isabelle Andrade.
A visitation for Dakota will be held on Tuesday, June 1, 2021, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Reavis Funeral Home of Statesville. A funeral service will be held Wednesday, June 2, 2021, at 11 a.m. at Bright Light Baptist Church in Statesville, N.C. Officiating the service will be Pastor Jayson Fox.
