She received formal education within the Columbus City Schools System and attended Linden McKinley High School in Columbus, Ohio.

Banisha could light up a room with her presence, sense of humor and laughter. She enjoyed beautiful fashion, shoes, accessories, hairstyling, cooking, and having fun. Her children remember her as a giving, funny, strong and stubborn mother who encouraged them to pursue their goals. Her mother says Banisha gave the best hugs in the world. She will be remembered for her tight, warm embrace.

Banisha was a generous, witty and dedicated woman who loved to feed people and was an excellent cook. She was passionate about her grandchildren and extended herself to family and friends, including caring for children, ensuring they made it to and from school and ate well. She also engaged in providing Sunday School lessons for children at Christ Ministries Therapeutic Community Church.
