Shanika Whitaker Obituary

Shanika N. Whitaker was born on September 17, 1975 to Mildred Whitaker and Michael Caple in Chester, PA. On February 4, 2024, she entered peacefully into eternal rest. 


Shanika received her education within the Chester Upland School District. She was widely admired for her unwavering dedication in all aspects of her life. Among her most esteemed qualities was her commitment to excellence, particularly evident in her career as a dispatcher, where she excelled. Shanika was reliable no matter the issue; offering resolution, clarity, and a comforting presence to those in need. Her ability to uplift others was unparalleled, leaving behind smiles and laughter wherever she went. Her dedication was most noted in her love for her grandbabies. She would spend every football season with her grandchildren screaming at the T.V screen; a passion she passed on to them. Shanika’s admiration for her grandbabies could not be hidden; she was the blueprint for a grandmother’s unconditional love. In her personal time, she enjoyed card games, visits to casinos, and her annual Atlantic City trips. While Shanika anticipated Christmas, she truly found joy in wrapping gifts all night and eagerly waking everyone to catch the excitement on their faces. Shanika’s overwhelming sense of humor, dedication, and sincere heart will forever live on in our memories. 


Shanika was predeceased by her only son, Joseph M. Dickerson.


Shanika leaves to cherish her memories; Mother, Mildred Whitaker and father Michael Caple, of Chester, PA. Two daughters, Shaniqua Whitaker and Dai’Shanik Dickerson (Steven Couch) of Chester, PA. Two grandchildren, Joseph Gillespie and Ray’Ven Couch of Chester, PA. Two sisters, Mikeysha (Favorite Brother-in-law, Finis) Crawford and Tamara Whitaker. Nephew, Jaden Crawford and Nieces, Jazzmin Crawford, Makaylah Watson, Mckenzie Watson, and Millie Whitaker, all of Chester, PA. 


She also leaves a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and her loving puppy, Chop.
