The world lost a bright light on October 7, 2019 with the death of Tyreena King. In death, as in life, she will forever be remembered for how she lit up the room and the hearts of those who knew her each time she smiled.
To send flowers in memory of Tyreena King King, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Tyreena was born December 29, 1990 and spent a large part of her young life searching, as she was restless and nomadic. She loved to travel and getting away was how she reset herself. Some of the trips she enjoyed the most were steaming down the Mississippi River on a riverboat, going to the top of the Arch in St. Louis, touring the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C., exploring the Clinton Presidential Library in Arkansas, going on a Caribbean cruise and many other trips and adventures near and far flung.
At times her personal journeys took her away from the people who loved her most, but she almost always found her way back. During her short time on this earth, Tyreena loved to sing and dance and she was seldom shy. She would “bust a move” whenever she felt the urge, regardless of time or place...in the middle of a meeting, in the mall, or on the sidewalk. Her lightness of being was infectious and she could get the room dancing and laughing with minimal effort.
Tyreena leaves to cherish her memory her mother, Dana Atkins; her sisters, Precious and Yolanda Anderson; and her brothers: Tyree Atkins, Walter Anderson, and James Mitchell. Her father, Noel King, preceded her in death.
She also leaves to mourn her passing a host of aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.
The people who knew Tyreena well and loved her will always remember her kindness, generosity, spirit and resilience. Rest in peace dear Tyreena, your life mattered and you were and will always be loved.
