Community bids farewell to Shyanne Charles

A large crowd of mourners gathered at the Highland Funeral home on Sheppard Avenue in Scarborough Saturday, July 28, to bid farewell to Shyanne Charles.

The 14-year-old Scarborough girl was killed during a shooting on Danzig Street in Scarborough on July 16 that also took the life of 23-year-old Ajax resident Joshua Yasay, and wounded 23 others.

Those attending Saturday’s funeral service wore white to symbolize Shyanne’s innocence and purity.

Pastor Tyrone Haynes presided over the service.

Mourners remembered Shyanne with songs, poetry and thoughts through an open microphone.
