Latisha Nechelle Tillman-Jones was born on March 17, 1973 in Fort Smith, Arkansas to Hosea Tillman and Ora Mingo. She departed this life to spend and eternity with God on June 18, 2019.
Latisha graduated in 1991 from the Fort Smith Public Schools and she also received an Associate Degree from Fayetteville Technical School in North Carolina. She worked for many years as a tax preparer for H & R Block. She also worked as a pharmacy technician for K-Mart and Anderson Pharmacy until she decided that family was key.
Latisha was a loving wife, caring mother, sister, daughter, and friend who always put others needs before her own. She was loved by many. For everyone that came to show their respect are only a testimony to the lives she personally touched. She was a mother figure to a lot of people, which is why they called her “Mama Tish”. She never let you down and she will be forever missed.
Latisha was a loving soul who would give a person the clothes off her back. She was my very soulmate, friend, caring wife, and very beautiful soul who would make friends with everybody. She used to tell us that there’s good in people, you just have to be very positive about every situation. She used always tell us to look at the positive side of things. Now my Queen, you’re with God in heaven. You are with your Grandmother (Gertrude Mingo), a brother (Hosea Tillman, Jr.), a uncle (Glen Mingo), and a step-father (George Dumas).
Latisha leaves behind to cherish her loving memories, a loving husband, Shoyn Jones; four children, Jamarious Tillman, Tydarren, Shydaria, and Jamorlan Jones all of Fort Smith, Arkansas; four grandchildren, Kymani Tillman, Kingston Jones, Anaice Tillman, and Nya Gaines; her parents, Hosea Tillman of Little Rock, Arkansas and Ora Mingo of Fort Smith, Arkansas; two brothers, Michael and Malcolm Tillman of Little Rock, Arkansas; two sister, Eulanda Richard of Little Rock, Arkansas and Tia Tillman of West Memphis, Arkansas, many nephews, nieces, others relatives, and many friends whose lives she has touched along the way.
