Shalonde A'Jessica Stevens "Suga"

October 25, 1996 — February 14, 2024

Statesboro, GA

In loving memory of Ms. Shalonde A'Jessica "Suga" Stevens, a beloved soul who graced this world with her presence. Shalonde was born on October 25, 1996, in Statesboro, GA, to her parents Yolande Stevens Willaims and Craig Williams where she embarked on a journey filled with love, laughter, and an unwavering zest for life. Her life's story was not defined by the dates of birth and her death but by her profound impact on everyone lucky enough to know her.

At an early age, Shalonde joined the choir at Thomas Grove Baptist Church where she enjoyed singing and praising God in song. 

Shalonde's vivacious spirit and infectious wit illuminated every room she entered. From her early days in the Bulloch County School System with the class of 2015, she left a trail of cherished memories and friendships that will forever be treasured. Shalonde's passion for dancing was unparalleled, enchanting family gatherings with her rhythmic movements and boundless energy. She truly embodied the phrase "the life of the party".

Known for her outgoing nature and outspoken personality, Shalonde was a beacon of light to all who were fortunate to cross paths with her. Her kindness knew no bounds, and her capacity to love touched the hearts of many. Her legacy as a cherished daughter, mother, sister, and friend will continue to live on through the fond recollections shared by those who had the privilege to be part of her life.

She is preceded in death by her maternal grandmothers, the late Mattie J. Smith and the late Sandra J. Stevens, and her paternal grandmother the late Claudia B. Willaims.

In this time of profound loss, Shalonde is survived by a vast constellation of family members and friends who adored her deeply. Among them are her loving mother Yolande Williams of Statesboro, GA; her father Craig Williams of Pooler, GA; her maternal grandfather’s, Rev. Morris Stevens of Statesboro, GA and Terry Brunson of Statesboro, GA; her son, Jorden Stevens, daughter Ja’Leah Stevens both of Statesboro, GA; numerous siblings including Trezmaine Williams, DeAnthony Stevens, Shagarrien Matthews, De’Gamarri Matthews, Sylvia Daniels, Craig Simmons, Craig Jackson, Damien Williams, Craig Williams Jr., Jazmine Williams, Amari Williams, Alexis Wright, Amilla Williams, Ayden Williams - all bound together by the love they shared with Shalonde.

The memory of Ms. Shalonde A'Jessica "Suga" Stevens will forever echo in our hearts as we remember her laughter that filled our lives with joy and her warmth that embraced us during difficult times. May she rest in eternal peace knowing that she was loved beyond measure.
