A’Briana Kenese Ingram, of Milford, Delaware, had such a radiant light about her, she could illuminate the darkest day with her infamous smile. Unfortunately, on October 29, 2023, that light which had always shined so brightly, tragically turned into darkness when she was taken away from her family and friends far too soon at the young age of just 21 years old.
A’Briana (Bre) was born on August 3, 2002 in Trenton, NJ to Ayeola Horton and Brian Ingram. After residing in New Jersey during her earliest years, Bre and her family moved to Harrington, DE where she continued to grow up with her sister, and best friend in the entire world, A’Ryonna. A’Briana was a 2020 graduate of Lake Forest High School in Felton, DE. After graduating, she began working for Hibbet Sports in Milford, DE, and then became employed at the Harrington Welcome Inn in Harrington, DE. Bre loved to meet new people and make new friends. Anyone who had met her, even for a moment, couldn’t help but smile. Bre had a bubbly and infectious personality which made it impossible for anyone around her to be anything but happy. Bre was incredibly funny and loved to make people laugh, but her laugh was the absolute best! A’Briana always wore her heart on her sleeve and would be the first one there to help anyone, no matter what. She cared about everyone around her wholeheartedly and loved her family and friends fiercely. Even as a young girl, Bre was very nurturing and the “mother-hen” of the group. Wherever she was, there was almost always a group of younger children following her around. She always welcomed them with open arms and went out of her way to make each and every one of them feel special and included. Bre also loved fashion and had impeccable style. She had such an amazing confidence about her, it would easily rub off on everyone and anyone around her. One of the most important things to Bre was to make sure that anyone she had come into contact with had that same confidence in themselves. Bre was the definition of being kind, caring and nurturing, especially to all of her family and friends, whom she loved with everything she had. A’Briana was full of joy and was always ready to have fun, whether it was playing with her baby sister, A’Donyss, having girl time with her sister, Riri, going to a local wrestling match with her grandmother, Gina, or enjoying a weekend road trip to New Jersey with her mom and best friend, Ayeola.
A’Briana is preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Larry Horton, and great-grandmother, Mary Etta Lewis, both of New Jersey. Bre is survived by her mother, Ayeola Horton, of Milford, Delaware, her father, Brian Ingram, of Trenton, New Jersey. A’Briana is also survived by her sisters, who meant the world to her, A’Ryonna (Riri) Horton and A’Donyss Horton of Milford, Delaware and Sariyah Ingram of Florida; brothers Jashawn Ingram and Aiden Ingram both of New Jersey; maternal grandmother, Gina Lewis of Milford, Delaware, and great-grandmother, Ella Mae Hopkins of New Jersey; paternal grandmother Beverly Ingram, grandparents Howard and Kathy Cook of Trenton, New Jersey; uncles Aikhiem Lewis and Rasheme (Sonya) Cook of New Jersey; great uncles Terry Murphy of North Carolina, Willie (June) Hopkins of New Jersey, and Dorant Bartlett of Delaware, aunts Joann Duggins of Delaware, Chella Duggins of North Carolina, and Indiya Cook of New Jersey; great aunts Toshell (TT) Hopkins of Delaware, Denese Hopkins of Delaware, Jacquline Hopkins of New Jersey, and Brenda Ortiz of New Jersey. A’Briana is also survived by her two God-sons Shykeim Miller and Kareem Miller and their mother, Akera Turnage. In addition, Bre has left behind many, many cousins, extended family members and friends, all of which are heartbroken over her loss; special friends Aunt Mary Glover, Toriona Scott, Nasir, Jayceir, Jada Love, Justice, George, Tyrik, and a host of other friends and family.
