1978 MAKISHA 2024


February 23, 1978 — April 11, 2024

Losing someone as remarkable as Makisha Earnette Pippens has left a void in the hearts of many who had the privilege of knowing her. Her journey on this earth began on February 23, 1978, and though her time with us was tragically cut short, the impact she made during her brief existence will be etched our memories forever.

Makisha's passion for life was infectious, and her presence lit up any room she entered. She was a talented individual with a zest for cooking that knew no bounds. Her culinary creations were not merely dishes but works of art that brought joy to all who tasted them. Makisha also found solace in writing, where she poured her soul into heartfelt words that resonated deeply with those who read them. Additionally, she enjoyed the thrill of the casino, finding excitement and entertainment in the games that captured her adventurous spirit.

As we gather to mourn her untimely passing, we must also celebrate the vivacity and enthusiasm with which Makisha lived. Her vibrant energy touched everyone around her, leaving an indelible mark on their lives. While she may no longer be physically present, her memory will continue to live on through the stories shared by those who cherished her.

In this moment of loss, we remember Makisha Earnette Pippens with profound fondness and gratitude for having been graced by her presence. May she rest in peace knowing that she brought light and warmth to all who were fortunate enough to have known her.

To her family and friends who now grieve her absence, may you find comfort in each other's love and in the memories you hold dear. And to Makisha herself, may your spirit soar free knowing the profound impact you had on all those whose lives you touched.
