Shalese Nicole Lemberes-Chalk

December 4, 1994 - March 31, 2018

Beautiful Daughter, Wife, Mother, Granddaughter: A special ray of sunshine God sent from up above to bless the lives of Jeff and Suzy where she lived and shared their love. Shalese lived life to the fullest and enjoyed being with family and had a bond with her grandparents that will live on forever. She was very caring, kind, beautiful and strong.  She was a leader, hard worker and the best mom a child could ever have.  She loved children and would hold every baby that was in her presence.

Her dream was to be married and have a beautiful baby. Her dream and blessing came true on November 11, 2016, when miracle baby Averie Michelle Chalk was born. Shalese was the love of our life and we gave her everything we could to ensure her life was amazing.  Shalese had a radiant smile and laugh that was contagious.  She truly had a genuine concern for her family and friends.  She was our shining star, the light of our lives, with a beautiful sparkle in her eye where everyone gravitated to her to be in her presence. Shalese loved God with all of her heart.  One of her favorite scriptures was, “I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.  Philippians 4:13. We know Shalese is in the presence of the Lord and saturated in God’s love. We love her very much and she will be missed dearly.   Isaiah 40:31…those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Shalese we love you with all our strength and look forward to the day we will be reunited in paradise with God.

Shalese met Austin on December 05, 2015, and immediately had an unbreakable bond; a true love at first sight. Shortly after we had the blessing of conceiving our baby girl. During her pregnancy, she remained the strongest young woman we’ve ever met. Shalese and Austin married on October 25, 2016; their angel Averie was born on November 11, 2016. From that point on Shalese always had a glow, a radiance about her. She was the best mother, wife, human that many people could know. Her family wishes this to be a celebration of life and happy times when she made lives more enjoyable. Her daughter and husband now have their own guardian angel.

“We love you to the moon and back.”

Shalese is survived by her mother, Suzan Lemberes; father, Jeff Lemberes; grandfather, Robert Lemberes; grandmother, Georgeanne Lemberes; husband, Austin Chalk; and 16-month-old daughter, Averie Michelle Chalk.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Theodore Stamos, and grandmother, Belva Stamos.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday, April 7, 2018, at Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah. A viewing will be held on Friday, April 6, 2018, from 5:00 – 9:00 pm and on Saturday, April 7, 2018, from 9:00 – 9:45 am, at the mortuary.

Condolences for Shalese Nicole Lemberes-Chalk

Jeff, I just learned of your daughter's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife. May you be comforted in your memories of your sweet daughter. I hope the following poem will bring you peace and comfort in the months and years to come: "The Parable of Immortality" -Henry Van Dyke I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength, and I stand and watch until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says, “There she goes!” Gone where? Gone from my sight . . . that is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says, “There she goes!” there are other eyes watching her coming . . . and other voices ready to take up the glad shout . . . “Here she comes!” She is still with you, just in a different way. May God bless you and your family! -Melissa

Suzy & Jeff, Words can’t express my sorrow for your family at this time. Shalese was such a beautiful, sweet young lady who was dearly loved by our family. We have many fond memories of Shalese joining Ben and our family on family trips and she is in many of our family group photos. My heart breaks for you and you have been in my prayers constantly. I will continue to pray for peace and comfort to be with you. Love, Sheri Reynolds

Suzy & Jeff - So sorry to lose your precious Shalese, I know you adored her! So happy you were able to have her and enjoy her and continue to enjoy her through your beautiful grand daughter.

Suzy and family. My heart aches for you and your family as you mourn the loss of your daughter. Praying that you’ll be surrounded by God’s comforting love and filled with the peace He can only give. The Lord knows the pain you are feeling, the tears you cry and will give you the strength needed for each new day. My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. Exodus 33:14. With Thoughts and Prayers.

Jeff, My heart goes out to you and your wife at his time. Many prayers your way. I went through this a year ago. Time doesn't take away all the hurt or emptiness but it does soften the pain. She had a beautiful smile and I am sure she is looking down from heaven smiling upon her family.

Dear Jeff and Suzy, We will never forget our Shalese, she was always so nice to us, we had many fun days camping on the mountain. Our hearts are broken for you guys and Austin and that cute little baby girl. We will not forget her beautiful, contagious smile. Love, Bruce and Vickie


Dale and Mary Griffin posted on 4/6/18

Our children are gifts from God and we love them more than anything in this world. On behalf of Dale and Mary Griffin, we send our deepest sympathy and love to Jeff and Suzy. Please lean on God every minute and hour for healing because He has all the answers to our despair and sadness. The Holy Spirit is the Comforter Jesus spoke of before departed this earth to set on the right hand of His Father in heaven. God always love us regardless of our situations. Suzy has been a spiritual inspiration to so many of her co-workers and friends. So, believe we are praying for you both. We are only phone call away if you need some assistance! In the Name of Jesus we pray. Dale Griffin (801-564-0922)

I didn't know her but feel compelled to tell Austin & her daughter Avery that I am sorry for your loss. May God be with you as she is.


Vaughn Mckeeth posted on 4/4/18

We are just heartbroken for you hearing of Shalese`s passing. We remember the cute little girl who always came by with Caleb for Vaughn, "her mechanic," to fix their bikes. Years later she was a sweet, loving peer tutor in my special education class. She had grown up so much she had to introduce herself to me again. She was a beautiful girl inside and out. We are so very sorry for your loss. We hope her little daughter will be a comfort and a joy to you. We are sorry that we will be out of town and unable to attend the services. Vaughn and Carolyn McKeeth
