I am so sorry to hear about Lajeana she was a super lady. She worked for us at the Brewers Cleaners for many years and her smile was radiant and her laugh was so contagious. Lajeana loved her family and had many mountains to climb, but she did it with such grace. God Bless you dear friend till we meet again.
Our condolences to family and friends. Gina was a good woman, loved her family very much. Our thoughts and prayers to family and friends.
I was sadden to hear of Lajeana’s passing. I met Lajeana in high
school (Caprock). We became instant friends and loved riding around town in her yellow sports car, also known as the “bat mobile.”
I loved staying over night at her house, going to church with her family and riding along with her and her Dad on his coke route.
We both got married and had baby girls 3 months apart. We remained friends as young Mothers as our families grew.
Lajeana was a fun loving person, great friend and wonderful Mother.
I know she will be missed by many. RIP 🙏🏻
Thanks for all the memories. <3 Except for the time you guys hid in the bushes and scared me with the mask and I cried in the bathroom for like an hour. That one wasn't so great. Lmao But I loved every minute of it looking back. Rest in Peace.
I am sadden to hear of your loss to that big family and many friends who loved you, but we are none of us long for this world, and this is a comfort. May all of those wonderful kids have beautiful memories of the sweet love you gave them. Peace and understanding to all whom are in sorrow, knowing we will all see each other again. I know you are in wonder of the play you have gone and the people you are united with again.
Love from Karen and Fred Kemp and family.
LaJeana was one of my many first cousins and was only 6 months older than me. Her dad, Vernon, was my favorite uncle. We all loved the family sing alongs with all the Woodall/Davis family. I will miss her very much . I’m so sorry for her immediate family’s loss, but take comfort that she joined the extended family in Heaven and is now singing in Heavens choir praising the Lord. We will miss her greatly.

Bill, I’m so sorry for your loss. Gina’s kids and grand kids must be devastated. She was such a source of comfort to all. I’m sure her Alms deeds will go to heaven before her. Take heart that she is well and happy and watching over everyone.
