Obituary

Corey Deshawn “Shawnie Baby” Hartley, born to Charles and Minnie Hartley on June 16, 1970, passed away surrounded by the love of his family and friends on April 19, 2017.

Corey blessed his parents with being the happiest baby around. His loving personality always allowed him to build relationships with his teachers and classmates from St. Joseph, St. Pius, North Fairmount, Gamble and West High. He played the Trombone in the High School Band, and was part of the Mustang’s Football Team where he established friendships that still exist today.  He grew up in the Zion Temple First Pentecostal Church under Bishop Jasper J. Phillips, singing in the children’s choir, and became part of the camera crew taping the weekly broadcasts. He’s very much loved by the Zion Temple Family, members always inquired about. Corey’s Career began at Hardee’s as a teenager, moved to American Red Cross, Landing him with his Larosa’s Family in 1991 until he passed. He achieved the Legendary Service Award by taking care of a blind customer after the store closed their dining room, by creating him his own personal dining room for his meal….showing his heart of gold.

In July 1989, Corey Hartley and Lisa North gave birth to his daughter Lynnice “Nina Pooh” North. On February 13, 2004 Corey met Betty Dameron who later became his wife on September 10, 2011. His wife drove him nuts planting flowers, cleaning out their 15 flower beds, raking leaves, whenever she had a chance to make the yard beautiful. Corey was an individual who was filled with many jokes, loud laughs, welcoming spirit, and wonderful personality. Always knowing Corey’s bark was louder than his bite, he may have been the loudest around but he was also the most gentle. He was always soft spoken and respectful to all of his elders including his parents…softly calling out “MA”. He was the fondest doggie dad to his precious Ruby, Max, and Lily. Growing up as the oldest brother, he was always pestering his sibling as well as being there whenever they needed him. He always made it a point to travel around see all of his family and friends, making sure everyone was good.

Corey’s memory is cherished by his beloved wife Betty Dameron, dear children Lynnice “Nina” North, Jerome Dennis III, and Maurice Dennis, his parents Charles Hartley and Minnie Hartley (Stallworth), his aunts Voncile Myrick, Thelma Bradley (Bobby), Marie Stallworth, Genie Holley, Gloria Johnson, and Marylee Jennings Stallworth, his uncles Robert “Toody Bug” Brown, Curtis Hartley, Ira Blackman, he’s preceded in death by his aunt Diane Collins who named him “Shawnie Baby”, his aunt Alberta, his aunt Stella Hartley, his uncle Carlton “Carson” Stallworth his uncle Dawood (David) Abdul-Salaau, Johnny “Sam” Gross,  and Isaiah Stallworth, his 11 brothers and sisters, Ivy Hartley, Estelle “Nikki” Hartley, Amy Hartley, Cynthia “Cindy” Hartley, Omar Hartley, Antwan Hartley, Jacob “Sleep” Hartley, Beth Hartley, Alex Hartley, Charles Lamar Hartley (Virginia Hartley), and Stephanie Hartley, his 20 nieces and nephews, and 1 great-niece, his God Children, and his many adopted families Fairmount, West High Mustangs, Zion Temple, Larosa’s, Bowling, Dialysis, and many more.

    Wow!!!! I don't know where to begin. We're the same age, grew up together. Since I left home I've been out of touch with our family. It's been difficult dealing with the lost of another family member. You will surely be missed! I pray for strength for your immediate family and our entire family as a whole! Love you cousin.
