Shoshianna Aunjeane (Carbin) Moore, affectionately known as Sho or Shoshi, was born to Carl B. Carbin Jr. and Katheryn R. Sneed on September 3, 1988 in Tarrant County, Texas. She was an energetic and loving child with a healthy curiosity about the world and the people around her. She was a natural dreamer; she saw the world for what it could be despite any challenges placed in her path. It was because of her humble beginnings; she was always able to stay grounded and empathize with those around her.

Like most people in their youth attempting to navigate through life, Shoshianna ebbed and flowed through life that was very unique to her. As she made the many transitions of life while growing into her own, she found herself in Arkansas with her older brother Markus A. Sneed-Hill while he pursued his collegiate education. Not quite content, she eventually moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma with her father where she attended Douglass High school and later graduated on May 17, 2007.
Upon graduating high school, Shoshianna decided to take a sabbatical in Alexandria, Virginia with her older brother Carl L. Carbin and his family prior to beginning her studies at Langston University in pursuit of her degree in Business Administration.
Prior to completing her degree, Shoshianna decided to follow the example of her oldest siblings and joined the United States Army on March 8th, 2010. She completed basic combat training and her advanced individual training later that year and was assigned to Fort Carson, Colorado where she met and later married Xavier Moore. They were eventually blessed with an amazing and inquisitive son, Zachariah E. Moore on November 13, 2015. Zachariah was indeed an amazing gift to Shoshianna since she had previously discovered that she would not be able to have children. She was eventually deployed to Afghanistan in support of combat operations as the unit Supply Sergeant where she served until May 26, 2016. She and Xavier later decided amicably to divorce in 2018.
Shortly after relocating back to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Shoshianna began her journey of expanding her strong desire in business which would eventually lead to greater endeavors. In 2019, she introduced the very successful brand NotChoCheesecake which continues to thrive even in her absence.
She is survived by her only living legacy, her son, Zachariah Ean Moore; Father, Carl B. Carbin, Jr.; Mother, Katheryn R. Sneed; Sister’s Denedra Finley and Krystal Murria; Brother’s Carl L. Carbin, Steven Carbin, and Markus A. Sneed-Hill; and her Fiancé Glen A. Whitaker.
Shoshianna’s story does not end here. She has left her mark on every person she has encountered. Her perspective of the world, as my sister would describe it as, “Rainbows, Unicorns, and Butterflies”. She brought families and friends together in ways that most people wouldn’t bother doing. But, that is just a testament to who and what she was. She is and was a gift as well as very gifted.
