Glenwood Ave in Columbus Ohio on April 1, 2021. She is survived by her Mother Carla Marie Harrell, Step-Father Henry Charles Crosby Jr., son Keiland Jerome Harrell, Sister NaTasha Marie Crosby, Sons father Boyden Wilson, Very Special friend Mario Williams , Aunt Serena Jo Topsail-Case, Uncle Ansieau Joceran Teamer, Cousins Raven Willow Teamer, Sierra Lynn Case-Valette, Christopher Elijah Elliot Vallette, Rian Alli Case and a host of other relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by her Grandmother Gloria Jean Teamer, Great grandmother Pauline Marie Miller, and Grandfather Michael Jerome Harrell.
Nikkia was a very vibrant, loving and caring soul. As a child she played the flute and the trumpet in the school band at Nelsonville-York High School and was also a cheerleader for about 8 to 9 years over her late elementary years, middle school years and high school years which she enjoyed very much. Her team made it to the National Championships in her sophomore year of high school and went to Disney in Orlando, Florida where the competition was held. That was a very enjoyable time and a very proud moment for me as her mother.
Nikkia went out on the road selling magazines door to door and state to state in 2007. Her first stop was Fargo North Dakota and she got to visit many places during that time, Hawaii and Mexico being two of them. She learned her sales pitch line in fluent spanish and was awarded sales agent of the Nation not once but twice. I would always brag about that and tell people that my daughter could sell ice cubes to an Eskimo. We always laughed about that.
Nikkia's favorite thing to do was cook. She graduated Escoffier Culinary school in 2020. Cooking was her absolute passion of life and anyone who had the pleasure of tasting her food would whole heartedly agree that she was top notch with her cooking skills. I would often joke with her and call her Chef-Boy-Ar Kia. Her cooking will truly be missed. Nikkia obtained her General Equivelency Diploma in 2004. Nikkia enjoyed helping people and putting a smile on peoples face. She had been known to help with the local homeless people by giving them food she had cooked. Nikkia will be missed by many people. She truly touched the lives and hearts of many. She was a very good mother to my grandson and we all loved and will miss her very much.
Although we have no understanding as to why god took her from us so suddenly and at such a young age, god will always carry out his plan, for his plan is the best plan. Fly High and rest easy angel until we all see you again one day on the other side.
Friends may call Saturday, April 10 from 12-1pm at Jerry Spears Funeral Home with Crematory, 2693 West Broad St, where service will be held at 1pm.
