The Lord Giveth and the Lord has taken away. Sometimes, God lends the world His children only for a little while. No parent plans to bury his or her child but when God sends His Angels to bring His child home; much sooner than we planned, we will brave the grief that comes and try to understand.

DaQuajia Shaylan l ’mon Vann was born June 6,1999 in Brunswick Georgia, to Reshema Vann and Alan Addison. Dedrick Wilkerson was a devoted father to DaQuajia from the age of two until her passing. God called her to eternal rest on Saturday July 11,2020. She was educated in the Glynn Co. Public School System. DaQuajia graduated from Brunswick High School in 2018. DaQuajia passion was playing basketball. She always loved playing with her friends and especially on the Brunswick High School basketball team. Her number was #10. We can see her smiling as she tries to make moves on the basketball court. Her second passion was wearing Nike clothes and shoes. Most of all DaQuajia loved her family and enjoyed spending time with them. Most people knew her as DaQuajia, but for family and those close friends, they knew her as “Tay -Tay”. She was employed by McDonald for a while, then Lowes.

DaQuajia was preceded in death by maternal grandmother, Dorothy Vann; paternal grandparents, Laufton and Mary Addison, Clarence Wilkerson and uncle, Ricky Vann.

She leaves to cherish her memories: her parents, Reshema and Dedrick Wilkerson; biological father, Alan Addision; sisters, DeKira Wilkerson, Tyneka Addison, Ashley Addison , and Jalon Addison; brothers, Davonnis Johnson, Damarius Bennett, Dedrick Wilkerson, Jr., Alan Addision Jr., Kris Addison, Darvontae Addison, and Devon Addision; grandmother, Patricia Wilkerson; grandfather, Richard Vann; aunts, Thewanna Nixon - Austell, Ramona Vann and Katina Nesbit, uncles, Bryon Brown, Andre Addison, Anthony Wilkerson, and Treymaine Wilkerson; one niece, Kyleigh Johnson; and a host of other aunts, uncles, great aunts, great uncles, cousins, relatives and friends
