Obituary for Sheje Mesi

Sheje Mesi, 71, was a gift from God to her husband, children, and grandchildren. She passed away on Monday, August 31st, 2020 shortly after a cancer diagnosis.

Sheje, aka "nena" was born in Albania. She married Hamid in 1970 and had 3 children. Sheje moved to Royal Oak, MI in 2001.

Nena did not care about accomplishments, trophies, or earthly treasures, her passion was to love others well and help them. She was kind, warm, generous and very hard working. The oldest of 6 she took care of all of her siblings and was considered as a second mom to each.

She was known in her family, her work place and her neighborhood for how humble, empathetic and sacrificial she was. She always placed other people's needs first. In fact, she took early retirement in order to watch her grandchildren full time.

Her encouraging and positive mindset was contagious. She had an exceptional ability to see the bright side even of a negative circumstance. Sheje both loved and feared God and she was confident in her last few days that God had made a room for her in His house.

"The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake."

(Psalm 23:1-3)

Survived by husband Hamid, her son Ilirjan and daughters Elona and Rudina. She was also survived by her grandchildren whom she loved deeply Polikron, Patrick, Marcia, Mariela, Kirsten, Brigitte, Abigail and Grace.
