On Thursday March 21, 2019 in Norfolk, Virginia, Alicia Laverne Jenkins suddenly departed this life and entered a life of eternal peace with her Heavenly Father. Alicia was born July 1982 to Dwight & Alice Mae Jenkins in Portsmouth, Virginia. She was preceded in death by her grandfather Sammie Charlie Blount & Sarah Dillor Blount; Eugene Elles. Her cousin Ronnie Lacey Jr. and Larry Washington.
Alicia was educated in the public school system of Granby High in Norfolk, Virginia. She was fun loving daughter, mother, auntie and friend. She took life by the horns and dealt with life’s challenges. She embraced and enjoyed life to the upmost. If there was a celebration and or gathering of family or friends, she made every effort to attend. She loved her family, music, writing, coloring, dancing, and even singing. Her favorite song was, “Share My World”, by Mary J. Blige.
Alicia had a heart of giving and caring that made everyone feel accepted. This would put that non-erasable smile on her face that would light up the room, or as one could say, it was PRICELESS!!
