Laquanda Rena Smith

June 19, 1983 — December 31, 2023

Byram Ms

Laquanda Rena Smith, beloved daughter, mother, sister, and friend, left this world on December 31, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love and warmth that will forever be cherished. Born on June 19, 1983, in Jackson, MS, Laquanda touched the lives of many with her kind and compassionate spirit.

Laquanda's education began at Gary Road Elementary in Byram, MS. She continued her studies at Byram Middle School and Terry High School, where she blossomed into a bright and intelligent young woman. As she navigated through life's trials and tribulations, Laquanda's resilience and determination shone through.

Professionally, Laquanda found fulfillment working for Damian Stevenson Attorney At Law. She dedicated herself to her work, finding joy in the opportunity to assist others. Her commitment to justice and empathy made her an invaluable asset to the office.

Laquanda's passing leaves a void that will be deeply felt by all who had the privilege of knowing her. She is survived by her devoted father Roy Smith (Paticia) of Jackson; her two loving sons, Dewayne Hill and David Smith; her cherished daughter Trinity Smith of Jackson; and her four brothers: Dewayne Smith, Fredrick Smith (Jeannie), Ricardo Smith (Barbara), all of Jackson.

In addition to her immediate family, Laquanda leaves behind a host of cherished aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who were touched by her vibrant spirit. One such dear friend was Evelyn Hoggatt, who stood by Laquanda's side through thick and thin.

To honor Laquanda's life and memory, two services have been planned. The first service will be a visitation held on January 12th from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM at Heritage Funeral Services located at 421 West Cunningham Ave., Terry, MS, 39170. This will provide an opportunity for family and friends to pay their respects and share their heartfelt condolences.

The second service will be a Celebration of Life held on January 13th at Greater Bethlehem Temple Church. Starting at 1:30 PM, friends and loved ones will gather at 1505 Robinson Rd, Jackson, MS, 39203, to celebrate Laquanda's life and honor her memory. It is during this time that stories will be shared—stories of laughter, resilience, and the love that defined Laquanda's life.

Laquanda Rena Smith has left an indelible mark on the hearts and souls of all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her infectious laugh, kind heart, and unwavering love for others will forever be treasured. As we say goodbye to our beloved Laquanda Rena Smith, let us carry her spirit in our hearts, remembering the joy she brought to our lives.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family kindly requests donations be made in Laquanda's honor to a charity of your choice. Together, let us continue Laquanda's legacy of kindness and compassion in this world.
