Sakoya Williams Obituary

SAKOYA SANAE WILLIAMS was born on Thursday, January 16, 2003 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland to Vicki Tina Williams and Cory Lathan. Born at twenty weeks early, Sakoya was a fighter the second she exited her mother's womb. On Friday, November 17, 2023, she transitioned to her eternal home after suffering from an asthma attack.

Sakoya was affectionately known as "Kory" or "Koya" (especially by her nephew Zane) and mommy by her mom Woman. She received her childhood education through the Baltimore City Public School System and graduated form NAF Academy.....Class of 2021.

Sakoya loved fashion, especially dressing up or "getting cute" as she would say. She loved her hair, nails and lashes done at all times. She always volunteered to be her sister Drea's practice head when it came to a new hair style or braids, which she never complained about.

Sakoya loved the Lord and accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age.

Sakoya was kind and very passionate about her family, especially close and dear to her heart, like her sister Drea (Sis), nephew Zane (Stink-Butt), and of course her mom, Woman. Sakoya also loved her older cousins and hanging out with them. Although she was a few years younger, she did not let that stop her from joining them on a "Girls' Night Out" of dancing, laughing, and having a good time.

Sakoya was employed at Walgreen's for the last 2 years as a Cashier Sales Associate (CSA), and was recently promoted to a Team Lead CSA. She loved working and would not be caught taking a day off unless it was absolutely necessary.

Sakoya was preceded in death by her great-grandfather, Frank Lathan; two grandfathers, Samuel Williams and Kenneth Lathan; two uncles, James M. Williams and Gary K. Williams; two cousins, Tammy T. Bess and Spencer V. Williams.

Sakoya leaves to cherish her memory: her loving mother, Vicki T. Williams; her father, Corey Lathan; great grandmother, Harriet Libscomb; two grandmothers, Beatrice Williams and Yolanda Cottman; two sisters, Andrea D. Solomon (Best friend) and Jameira Lathan; one nephew, Zane C. Solomon; a special friend and significant other, Jawan Blick; nine aunts, Beatrice Williams, Darlene Williams-Brown, Lisa M. Williams, Valerie Williams, Deborah Ham, Lakenya Lathan, Ellesse McCray-Lathan, Nakia McCray-Lathan and Dorian McCray-Lathan; nine uncles, Samuel Allen, Derry L. Williams, Tracy Williams, Mark C. Williams, Michael T. Brown, Frank Lathan, Jr., Quintin Lathan, Kenneth Lathan, Jr., and Byran Cottman; her favorite cousin, Taylor C. Williams and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
