The Arc Remembers Shakia Reeves

September 19th, 2019

Also known as KeKe to friends and staff, Shakia joined The Arc of Essex County’s Opportunity Zone Day Program in March of 2014. Best remembered by her infectious smile, she also took great pride in her appearance, making sure to always look her best. She loved listening to music and dancing. The first on the dance floor and the last one to leave, parties were Shakia’s favorite activity.

The Arc of Essex County conveys its condolences to the Reeves family and Shakia’s extended Arc family during this difficult time.  If you would like to make a donation to The Arc of Essex County in Shakia's memory, please visit and note that your donation is in memory of Shakia – an acknowledgement of your tribute will be sent to family members.
