VIRGINIA BEACH—Taylor Shea Via of Virginia Beach, age 26, passed away unexpectedly on July 20, 2018.

Taylor was born in Richmond, Va. and raised in Hampton Roads. She is survived by her mother, Rochelle Rosenberg, father Charles Via, brother Aaron, sister Hannah, stepsisters Tila (Adam) Fly and Tara Balkus, Uncle and Aunt Marc (Stephanie) Rosenberg, cousin Samantha, grandmother Toby Lerman and her Aunt Michele Brooke. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Stanley and Sandra Rosenberg of blessed memory.

Taylor, also known as Tay Shea, was such a special loving young woman with a very old soul. Her bright blue eyes sparkled, and her beautiful smile would light up a room and fill the sky with stars. Her laughter was contagious and would put a smile on your face. She felt compassion and concern for those less fortunate and went out of her way to make others feel
better even when she was experiencing the pains of Juvenile Diabetes. She was artistic and had a flair for fashion, design, music, and art. She was the light in the darkest of nights and was always there for her family through the good and bad and would drop everything to ensure her family came first on every occasion. Taylor wrote “I’d break my own heart and use those pieces to fix yours.”

Our dearest Taylor will be missed so much more than the air we breathe.

A funeral service was conducted at the Norfolk Chapel of H. D. Oliver Funeral Apts. with Cantor Jennifer Reuben officiating.
Burial followed in Forest Lawn Cemetery. Donations in Taylor’s memory to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
