Mrs. Doshia Taylor Nethery, wife of the late Daniel Earl Nethery and a resident of Southside Chesconessex, passed away Monday, Sept. 27, 2021, at the age of 60. Born Aug. 18, 1961, she was the daughter of the late William Oliver Taylor and the late Virginia Lee Smith Taylor.

Doshia worked as a certified nursing assistant, spending a majority of her career working at the former Community Living, Homes for Adults, in Onancock. Her caring and compassionate personality was an asset to her nursing career and was evident through her unconditional love to her family. She was a devoted mother, sister, grandmother, and friend, who was happiest when she had a house full of people. Doshia enjoyed playing guitar and singing, often filling her home with her favorite country gospel songs, and she could never resist a game of Canasta, darts, or pool.

Survivors include her loving sons, Andrew “Dusty” Nethery and wife, Brittany, of Deep Creek, and Rusty Shane Nethery, of Southside Chesconessex; sisters, Barbara Lilliston and Doshia L. Huggins and husband, Billy; brothers, Gene Shelton and wife, Kathy, and Cecil Taylor and wife, Rhonda; granddaughters, Hailey and Elaina; nieces and nephews, Barbara Jean Bundick, Robert, Marvin, Norman and Cecil Bundick, Vonnie Thornton, John and James Bowen, Tina Shelton, Lori Krause, Bev and Jenny Wilkerson, and Tammy Taylor; and her best friend and adopted sister, Brenda Wright; as well as many more extended family members and countless friends. In addition to her husband and parents, she was predeceased by her brother, William “Bill” Taylor; sister, Eileen Shelton Thomas; and nephews, Gene Shelton Jr. and Billy Greer.

Funeral services will be held at the Onancock Baptist Church Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021, at 1 p.m., with Pastor Andy Cobb. Interment will follow in the Fairview Lawn Cemetery.
