Precious L. McClendon

Sunrise: September 28, 1998

Sunset: September 3, 2023

Precious McClendon was born September 28, 1998 to Sybil Renee McClendon and Willie Arthur Boone. She was predeceased by her mother and her grandmother, Bessie McClendon.

Precious attended Booker T. Washington High School and was employed for a while working hospitality in a local hotel.

Precious joined the Garden of Prayer Worship Center with her mother and siblings before she was a teenager. There she enjoyed singing and dancing. She was one of the praise dancers at the church for over a year. She was urged by her mother to attend Sunday School and participate in many of the wholesome activities at the church. Her mother, who was a tremendous influence, also encouraged her to have faith in God.

At times, Precious seemed to be difficult but she was often misunderstood. Despite the obstacles she came across in life, she maintained her faith and always kept her trust in God. She enjoyed making people laugh and being around the ones she loved. Precious always gave words of encouragement to those who came to her seeking a listening ear.

Her unexpected demise leaves two children: her 8-year old daughter, Azyah McClendon, and her 5-month year old son, Zachariah McClendon. Also cherishing her memory are three siblings: Schwann McClendon, Lovely M. Green , and Zykeiah McClendon all of Norfolk, VA; and a host of family and friends.
