Chevonne Lovelle White, the daughter of Judy Williams and the late Albert McCoy was born November 18, 1965, in Harlem Hospital, near New York, New York.
She received her early education at Public School 194 and Junior High School IS 201. She graduated from Julia Richmond High School and persuaded her passion for writing, she loved poetry, and that’s what she wrote.
Chevonne was conscience of the ups and downs of life, the Lord showered down on her the tools needed to endure the race. She was someone who never judged you. She understands you. She had a giving heart and gave. Our children still remember and talk about all those Christmas’s years ago when they waited for her to come with big boxes filled with toys and clothes for all of them to put under their Christmas tree. She even had gifts for all the Moms.
Chevonne had and showed much love for all of us, her family, but her greatest love was her loving and caring mother, Judy. Her biggest joy was when she found out that one of her poems received recognition.
In the Spring of 1989, a poem she wrote titled “The Guiding Light" was accepted into the Book of Poems and placed on the shelf at the Shamburg Library at 135th Street and Lenox Avenue, in Harlem New York. Chevonne got her recognition, and she achieved her goal.
Chevonne leaves to cherish her memories: her mother, Judy; a brother, Damon; a sister, Deidra; three aunts, Willamae, Betty, and Sondra; two uncles, Jerry and Mike; one sister-in-law, Jamala; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
Please keep the family of Chevonne L. White in your thoughts and prayers.
