Jessica Bryen Keith
Jessica Bryen Keith, 33, of Panama City Beach, Fla., passed away unexpectedly May 10, 2014.. She was born April 11, 1981, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. She was the daughter of the late Bruce Glenn Keith and Josephine Yvonne LeDonne Keith, currently residing in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. She was the youngest of three children.
She attended Ralston Elementary, Bell Middle School, South Denver High School, and Concorde Career Institute, from which she received her medical assistant certification. She was currently attending Pensacola State College, Fla., pursuing her nursing degree. She excelled in the medical field and loved caring for others. She sparkled.
Her life was her children. Raising two beautiful girls, Anaya Keith, 12 and Liyla Keith, 4, gave her purpose and direction. You cannot mention Jessica without talking about her girls. She starting teaching Anaya at a very young age and supported her as she became an exceptional student. Anaya was selected as a representative on the Junior Minority Council at her elementary school, received recognition from a Florida Senator for the highest math scores in her class two years in a row and was also accepted into the STEM academy.
Her time with Liyla had just begun, but she had already taught her love, and how to give really good hugs. Involving both girls in cheerleading, tumbling, ballet, and dance, Jessica also taught them to sparkle.
She is preceded by her father, Bruce Glenn Keith, 1946-2013, and grandfather Bruce Garth Keith, 1918-2006.
She is survived by her daughters, Anaya Marie Keith and Liyla Rae Keith, of Panama City Beach; mother, Josie Keith; sisters, Amber Keith Ham and family of Santa Rosa Beach and Ladonna Keith Armstrong and family, of Aiken, S.C.
Services for her memory will be held on June 13 at Monet, Monet, in Grayton Beach, Fla., and she will be laid to rest in the mountains of Colorado.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the American Heart Association in her memory. The family also wishes for you to cherish your sisters, daughters, mothers, nieces and loved ones and that you pray for Anaya and Liyla, for there is nothing more terrifying than not having your mother.
