Kennethia “Tekie” Deona Brown Dozier, 34, of Columbus, GA, formerly of Junction City, KS, departed this life on January 12, 2019.
She was born on February 14, 1984, in Junction City, Kansas. As a young girl, she attended the Apostolic Academy of Junction City and was once a member of Faith Tabernacle Church. After her formal schooling, she had the opportunity to do one of her loves which was traveling. Tekie got to go to many states with a company she was employed with. Afterwards, she came home to Junction City for a short time, but her restless nature took her to Kansas City, Missouri. She lived there a few years until she met Ray Dozier. He was a resident of Columbus, Georgia, and she decided to make her life with him there. She made her home in Columbus until her passing.
Tekie was outgoing, friendly, kind hearted, and very forgiving. Her heart was tremendous. She was one of the most loving persons you could ever know. Every night she would call her mother, Debra, like clockwork at 11:30pm and say “Hi, Honey Bunches of Oats”. She was a dreamer and had a love of traveling and adventure. Tekie was the life of the party and she didn't know a stranger. Above all, she was a devoted mother to her baby Reona, loving sister to her siblings, and will be dearly missed.
Tekie has to carry on her memory: her daughter, Reona Brown; parents Debra and Lee Pugh, Junction City, KS; biological father, Ollie Brown, Sr. of Junction City, KS; brother, Ollie Jr. and wife Erica Brown of Junction City, KS; two sisters, Jeona Pugh of Junction City, KS, and LaToya D. Brown of Kansas City, MO; and a host of loving family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her brother Shonn M. Givhan Brown and brother-in-law Donell "Tiny" Manning.
