Alesha Jean Taylor, 38, of Quitman, MS, passed away on May 6, 2021, in Attala County, Kosciusko, MS.
She was born on November 8, 1982, to Angela (Michelle) Scrimpshire and John-Wayne Brown in Meridian, MS.
She grew up in Quitman and raised her children here. She was a nana, mother, sister, daughter and friend.
She was a one-of-a-kind woman. To know her was to love her. She was a nurturer through and through. Anyone who needed anything could always count on her to show up and give everything she could. Her heart was full of love, light and laughter. She loved fiercely; in her presence you could always know you were home.
She always had the brightest smile and the best attitude. She took care of anyone she came in contact with and never asked for anything in return. Anything she ever did, she did with her whole heart and always treated everyone equally. There was never a time in her presence you could not feel her love or her devotion.
Alesha is survived by her three daughters, Kaitlyn, Haley, and Kelsie; grandchildren, Mason and Riverlin; several family members, and friends who were like family.
She is preceded in death by her grandmother, Geraldine Betty Ford; and son, Kemper Wallace Haney.
