Saquaiza Michelle Martin

Having graduated from Brookhaven High School and holding an Associate’s Degree, Saquaiza dedicated herself to her career in customer service at Molena Insurance while furthering her education in nursing. Her compassionate nature extended beyond her profession as she tirelessly gave back to her community, always putting others’ needs before her own. She was a member of Triedstone Missionary Baptist Church, finding solace and purpose in her faith.

Survived by her mother, Kenya Williams; father, Cosaa Martin Sr; son, Tyreik Eddings; adoring grandmothers, Gwen Galloway and Pamela Martin; and cherished grandfathers, Keith Williams Sr. and Milton Frazier. Saquaiza will also be dearly missed by her brothers: Cosaa Jr., Kaveion, Haisaun, Kyron, Jakwuan, and Willie.

Saquaiza’s legacy of selflessness and compassion will be celebrated Triedstone Missionary Baptist Church on April 20, 2024, 2pm Wake and 3pm Home Going Celebration.

As we come together to honor the remarkable life of Saquaiza Michelle Martin, let us remember her for the love she shared and the light she brought into the lives of all those she touched. May her memory be a blessing, and may her spirit find eternal peace and serenity.

  7. Never Would I Had Thought You Would Go So Soon
    A Memory That Sometimes Can Cause One’s Mind To Lose It’s Tune
    Making Everything Close To You lose It’s Room
    Room In Life That Seems Tight And A Little Claustrophobic Too
    God See What Loosing Another Love Makes Me Do
    Spill Out My Feelings
    Try To Understand If Being Okay Is Worth My Time While Healing
    The Pain You Left Us With Is Killing
    Leaving A Hole In Our Hearts I Mean Drilling
    It’s Nothing We Could Control I Understand But It Still Hurt Our Feelings
    Imma Miss You Cuz
    Being Able To Had Call You My Lil Cousin Was Never Spilling
    Cause You Were Full Of Life
    And I’m At Peace With It Cause I Know God Got You
    And I’ve Gained Once Another Angel
    Luv You Cuz
    Pray He Does As Much As We All Do
    God Bless And Amen
    For You And The Lord To

    Prayers To My Big Cousin Kenya And Sah Love You All
