The Life of Latanya Jackson

 Born in Detroit , Michigan on December 4th 1978 , she was the
proud mother of Tania and Trevell and great sister of Charles ,
Keisha , and Dontay .

Latanya was a beacon of sweetness and brightness , radiating joy to
everyone they encountered . Her warm smile and kind heart illuminated even
the darkest of days , leaving an indelible mark on the lives of those fortunate
enough to know her.

Regardless of her own situation Latanya had a different purpose in life to bring people together. She believed that laughter had a unique way of
breaking down barriers and fostering connections between people from all
walks of life. Through their humor , she aimed to bridge gaps , dissolve
tensions , and create a sense of unity among the family.

She leaves to cherish her memory ; her children , her brothers and sister as well
as her nieces and nephews and a host of family and friends. She will be
missed .

whether that was cooking, in the shower, sitting on the couch, or hanging with friends. She
was a hard worker, nothing was stopping her from reaching her goals and making sure
everyone and everything was kept up. She made it look easy, having fun and getting up for
work. She had fun with her life while also being loved.
