Felecia loved her husband and loved the family they raised together. They did everything together, enjoying the simple, yet priceless event of life such as watching movies, going out to eat or just being with family. Felecia was a loving and devoted wife to Andre, and in 2018, when Andre became ill, Felecia truly lived her vows- as it is written “in sickness and in health”-she stayed true to this promise and devoted herself to her husband and family and together they continued to enjoy life. She also enjoyed fishing, traveling, cooking, watching movies/tv series, reading her bible, and attending church. These were the things that bought her joy!

Today, as we remember Felecia, we remember a woman who loved her family, always had a kind word to say, and wanted to see everyone happy. We remember her love for people, in general, and how on cold mornings she would order 50-100 hot breakfast meals and bring blankets and socks to the homeless. Her heart was pure, and her actions were genuine! If you ever needed something like money, food or whatever, you could count on Felecia to give it to you, without hesitation. She made a major impact on many lives and will remain in all of our hearts forever! On July 11, 2021, Felecia Antoinette Durham departed this life.
