Howneisha Michelle Nelson was born September 13, 1995 to Howard Earl Nelson and Jamesetta (Jamie) Collins in Des Moines, Iowa. She was educated in the Des Moines Public School System and completed her general studies.She worked as a restaurant worker and proved to have a great work ethic.
Howneisha confessed Christ to be her Lord and Savior and was affiliated with the Church of God In Christ.
Howneisha loved being surrounded by her family and friends. Her most joyous times were spent with her three pesky daughters! She also enjoyed social media, spending hours on the phone, and fishing. She was always listening to music (rap and R&B), singing and rapping even though she couldn’t hold a tune (LOL). And ya’ll knew, she was a personal fashion designer. We will miss “Neney’s’” bright smile and infectious laugh. Her deep and perfect dimples and loud voice. But most of all, the outpouring of love she gave. She never met a stranger, even though she was a vexing person, you ended up loving her.
