Quinesha Gwendolyn Prince, 28, of Old Farm Road, Statesville, N.C., was born in Iredell County, N.C., on July 13, 1994, to Quinton Machaux Prince Sr. and Monica Hickmon Prince. She departed this life on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, at her home.

Quinesha graduated from Statesville High School in 2012. At the time of her transition, Quinesha was a dedicated and faithful employee of Subway in Statesville for three years. Previously, she was employed by McDonald’s in Statesville.

Quinesha accepted Jesus Christ at an early age. She joined Calvary Baptist Church in Union Grove, N.C. However, she loved attending Clark’s Chapel Baptist Church with her grandparents, Gwen and Gene Lawrence. She participated in many activities there, including Children’s Church, VBS, Girl Scouts, and she had an active role in one of the Christmas nativity programs that were held at the church.

Quinesha was a beautiful, vibrant, loving, and friendly young lady who was always willing to help in any way she could. She was a member of Girl Scout Troop #606, Clark’s Chapel Baptist Church, Statesville, and Girl Scout Troop #96, Bible Way Church of Atlas Road, Columbia, S.C., where she graduated as an Ambassador Girl Scout. Until her death, Quinesha was very active at the PSR Clubhouse that she attended. There she learned healthy living and group interaction skills

Quinesha loved to cook. We always knew when she was getting ready to cook something because she would go Live on Facebook, cooking up her favorite meals or trying new recipes. If she didn’t post the cooking session, she would post what she cooked.

Quinesha was a diehard Carolina Panthers fan and attended many of the Panthers football games. Her last text to a family member, Grandma Gwen, was regarding the last Panthers football game that she would see on Sunday, October 16, 2022: “Hey Grandma, what’s going on with the Panthers this season?”

Quinesha was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Sharon Osborne; paternal grand-father, Keith Melton; paternal great-grandmother, Fairy Sue Prince, who was 102 years old at the time of her death; and great-aunt, Rachel Prince Anderson.
