Our Precious Angel, A’tiona Jade “Tee-Dee” Brown, 19, of Sandusky, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Oct. 31, 2012.
She was born March 17, 1993, in Sandusky, to Melonne (Brown) Pope and Demetrick Clinton. A’tiona graduated from Sandusky High on May 27, 2012.
She was a member of Greater Faith Church, where she accepted our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She loved her family and friends and always had a smile on her face. So humble and sweet, yet she was a diva extraordinaire. She also loved taking pictures — that was just the Diva in her. She loved to have fun whenever she could with her “besties and bros”. She also loved attending church and Sunday dinners at her Big Granny’s. One of her favorite sayings was, “Whatever!”
She leaves to cherish her memory, her parents, Robert and Melonne Pope; Dad, Demetrick (Ta’Shonya) Clinton; natural father, Demorris McDonald; sister, Davionne Bonds; brother, Robert Pope II; niece, A’maia Bonds; maternal grandparents, Lawrence (Vanessa) Jordan, of Sandusky; paternal grandparents, Mike (Dorothy) Lofties, of Sandusky, and Melvin (Shelly) Reynolds, of Cottage Grove, Minn.; maternal great-grandmother, Lois Brown; aunt, Lois C. Brown; uncles, George (Natalie) Brown and Lawrence (Tierra) Jordan Jr.; great-great-aunt and uncle, Christanella and Roosevelt Rogers; great-great-great aunt, Mary Morris; her best and special friend, Kaelin Portor; and a host of family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her maternal great-grandfather, George Brown; paternal great-grandparents, James and Minnie McCray; great aunts, Deidra Brown, Laurie Coleman, Rosettea McCray and O’dessa McCray.
Friends may call from 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 9, until funeral services at 1 p.m. at Providence Missionary Baptist Church, 222 Dixie Ave., Sandusky. The Rev. Kerrin Robinson will officiate. Burial will follow in Perkins Cemetery. Toft Funeral Home & Crematory, 2001 Columbus Ave., Sandusky, is assisting the family with arrangements. Condolences may be shared at toftfh.com.
