Keonya gave birth to the joy of her life, her son, Brian, on December 1, 2017.

Keonya had the sweetest spirit about her and was kind to all. She had a fashion sense and displayed current trends with beauty. Keonya was keenly aware of make-up trends and could do fingernails like the professionals. Also, she loved to listen to music and was often seen with ear plugs in jamming.

Keonya leaves to cherish her memory: son, Brian Lee; mother, Marshall Gibson; grandmother, Mary Joyner; grandfather, Earl McCoy; sister, Jane T. Burt; niece, Nijah Jane Bragg; and host of uncles, aunts, and cousins.

Keonya will be missed, but lives forever in our hearts.

To be absent from the body means to be present with the Lord for believers.

She was preceded in death by her father, Kevin Burt and daughter, Brittany Lee Burt.
