Zavion Shores

Funeral services for Zavion Shores, seven months old of Scottsboro, were held on Monday, May 9, 2022 at Scottsboro Funeral Home with burial following in Cedar Hill Cemetery.
According to his mother, Zavion was a fighter since day one. He was born at 27 weeks against all odds, and he beat everyone until his last fight. He was the sweetest and most loving boy you could ever meet. He had been through so much in such a short time, and yet he would still smile every time he was asleep; that was his favorite – to smile. He was his sisters’ favorite baby doll; they would always make sure he had whatever he was crying for. He loved co-sleeping and any cuddles he could get.

He stole everyone’s heart. He was our “Bubs,” our fighter, our miracle baby, and a miracle, he was. Even when he was in the hospital, he was everyone’s favorite; every nurse wanted to hold him and cuddle him. They would come in and get him and walk around with him and called him their little nugget. Anyone who came into his life fell in love with this little man.

Zavion is survived by his mother, Chastity (Jatra Jones) Shores; father, Jervon Kelly; sisters, Za’riyah Shores, Zayla Shores; grandparents, Stacey and Shannon Kirk, Mary Kelly; great-grandfather, Jay Shores; aunts, Reanna Swaim, Jennifer Shores, Carla Hudson, Sierra Shores, Starla Shores, Amber Hudson; uncles, Michael Shores, Dustin Hudson.
