Being born on Valentine’s Day, she naturally became a spoiled bundle of joy that clinched everyone’s heart. She gave her life to the Lord at an early age at Acts of Faith Community Crusade Church, where she was involved in the youth choir, mime and dance ministry.

In addition, starting a dance/step team at Pickerington Central High School. Miasha graduated from Groveport Madison High School and Eastland Career Center School of Cosmetology, class of 2009.

Miasha was advised by doctors that she would never have children but with God she was able to give birth to her angel born Amora Bella Juanita Perrin. Together they would spend endless amounts of time cooking, learning, watching cartoons, laughing and cherishing each moment they had together. Through sickness and health she remained prayed up and vowed to God that she would be the best mother that she could be and SHE WAS!

Miasha loved to travel, laugh, dance and watch Michigan football games even though she didn’t know the rules. MiMi was also known for blessing people with her cooking! With signature dishes like her potato salad, chicken alfredo, curry chicken, pasta salad and many more dishes that nourished your soul. In fact, she had recently enrolled in culinary school & established her food truck business “House De Mi” LLC before she departed. Miasha illuminated joy no matter her health circumstances and her joy was infectious. Miasha had a beautiful smile that went along with her beautiful heart and soul!
