Keke, as she was known to most, was a high-spirited and passionate. Whether it was cooking, crafting, or chilling in the K-Spot, she relished every opportunity to be hospitable to others. Even when she shopped, she did so with others. Even when she shopped, she did so with others in mind, as she would often have a gift or whatever you needed when you stopped by. She loved to travel and no matter where she was, she knew someone because of her smile was unforgettable, her love was uncompromising, and her imprint on the lives of whose who crossed her path was undeniable. She will always be remembered of her favorite phrase. "Smile....Keke loves you!" She is already missed and will be forever celebrated! Keke passed from labor to reward on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.
