Our Beloved Teaona LaChelle Braxton was born in Richmond, VA on February 4th,1991, to Lawrence Braxton, Jr and the late Brenda Jean Laws. God called his angel home to retrieve her golden wings on Tuesday July 26th 2022 at the Inova Alexandria Hospital in Alexandria, VA.
Teaona was affectionately known to her family and friends as Tea “the go getter”. She was a student in Richmond County public schools, but successfully completed her G.E.D through Penn Foster College. She worked as a CNA caring for others’ loved ones in private residential/nursing home settings, then became certified as a Med-Tech caring for others at Rehabilitations Facilities in Richmond, and surrounding areas. Teaona decided in April of this year to further her education in healthcare by enrolling into a nursing program to become a future R.N. Teaona accepted Christ as her Lord and savior at a young age by joining Second Baptist Church located in Warsaw, Va.
Teaona was an above and beyond mother for her only son. A loving daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin, friend, an ear when you needed one, and a person with all the good resources on how to level up, and get on your grind with jobs.
