Obituary of Karima McKenney

Karima Latisha McKenney was born on January 23, 1989 in Atlantic City, NJ. After getting pregnant with her now 4 year old son, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Karima courageously and heroically fought for the last four years.  Our beloved Karima succumbed to cancer on February 8, 2018 surrounded by family and friends at the young age of 29 years.  Karima affectionately known as "Remy" was employed by Admiral Nissan as a Service Writer. She was a true fashionista at best and loved copping the latest Jordans for her and her son.  Karima truly enjoyed spending quality time with her son, family, and friends.  She was the life of the party and enjoyed every moment.  Karima was a blessing to everyone she came in contact with and made friends easily.  Karima was predeceased by her father Costello "Jalil" Tally in 1991.  She leaves to mourn her passing: her loving son Kamar Jalil, Mother Corynne McKenney-Collier and her husband Richard, Maternal grandmother Dottie McKenney, Paternal grand-parents Verona & Costello Tally, sister Natassia Sears, Aunt and Second Mother Azar Yisra'el, Aunts: Mona Tally, Linda Stewart, Nakeisha Mays, Uncles: Demond Tally, Ansar & Remme Abdullah, Terrance & Terrin Harris, Lamont & Raymond Mckenney, her cousin who was  more like her brother Daquan Daniels, niece Erin Shepard, 3 stepsisters, 1 stepbrother, 2 godchildren and a host of loving cousins and dear friends
