Ms. Leilani Danielle Stringer enlightens this world on November 15, 1983 in Camp Pendleton Hospital in Oceanside, California. She was the first child of Denise Mullens and Larry Stringer, and from day of her life she was going to be that light destined to shine.
Leilani moved to Florida at the age of one with her parents. She was something special always laughing, playing and dancing her way through life. On August 19, 1986, Leilani and her family were blessed with a brother Davrell Stringer. Her love for him stretched not only to family but to everyone who took the time to get to know her, once touched by her your life would be impacted forever.
Leilani was a graduate of Rockdale High School in 2003. She then enrolled in the Nursing program at Georgia Perimeter and Brown Mackey College. It was her love for all things that seem to make a beautiful change in her life. Her talents and goals did not only include doing hair but recreating an entire new look with hair, makeup and a new outfit. She was able to create a new attitude and a sense of confidence just with a hairstyle. She turned a simple hobby to a lucrative business for herself, Owner & CEO of Leilani's Fantasy, which enabled her to take care of her kids in an above fashion that the normal single mom and if you knew her, nothing was ever normal with her.
She was preceded in death, by her brother, Mr. Darvrell Stringer, grandparents Mr. & Mrs. John (Willie Ruth) Mullens, Mr. Ronald Mullens, Ms. Kendra Mullens, Ms. Lolanda Arnett Mullens.
She fought long and hard to take care of the loves of her life; Johnathan age 13 and Madison age 3. I never witnessed a stronger love than what she had for her kids. Leilani began to get ill in April 2014 and never really recovered. After numerous hospital stays her love for her kids never wavered, always trying to keep things normal. She traveled to maximize her stay at home while still trying to provide for her kids and also trying to entertain them by taking them to the movies, dinner and car shows or just being at home making silly videos with them. She physically only gave birth to two children but mentally she had three, her nephew, DeAndre Stringer which was the son of her late brother, Davrell Stringer, which was the love of her life.
She leaves to cherish her sweet memories, one son, Mr. Johnathan Haynes, one daughter, Miss. Madison Stringer, mother, Mrs. Denise Mullens Glanton, father, Mr. Larry Stringer and step-father Mr. Kenneth Glanton, six aunts, Ms. Jacqueline Aderinto, Ms. Annette Coleman of Covington, GA, Ms. Sharon Mullens of Washington D.C, Ms. Alvenia Wallace Mullens, Ms. Cassandra Washington Mullens of Conyers, GA and Ms. Patricia Newsome of Thomasville, GA she always reminded them that each was secretly her favorite. four uncles, Mr. Ken Mullens, Mr. John Mullens of Florida , Mr. Fred Williams and Mr. Glen Stringer of Thomasville, GA, three step-sisters, Ms. Katrina Bradshaw Sanders of Thomasville, GA, Ms. Kandance Glanton of California, and Ms. Kentashia Glanton, a host of first cousins,Jason, Leteshia(Summer), Joy, Jimmie, Meagan, Wesley, Shandra, Kamydria, Helen Stringer, Kadify, Majida, and Shanita.
