Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Trena Patrice Grigsby, age 56

Trena Patrice Grigsby, age 56, of Arkadelphia went to be with the Lord on January 8, 2023. She was born in Palmdale, California on July 30, 1965 to the late Theartis Grigsby and Yvonne Delores Franklin.

Trena is preceded in death by her parents and her granddaughter Aa’jhanay

She leaves behind her children Jamee Terrell, Derreck West, and Summer West; grandchildren Aon’jhel Williams, Aa’liyah Williams, Trenaty West, Derreck West Jr, Izayah West, Myah West, Breona West, Mariah West, Cameron West, and Alana West; siblings Teresa Grigsby, Theartis Grigsby Jr, Timothy Grigsby, and Hershel Grigsby; and many more nieces, nephews, and friends.

Trena was a mother-figure to many from coast to coast who say her love could fill the entire sky. She was known by everyone to end every conversation with “I love you and God bless you”. Among the many gifts she shared with her loved ones was God’s word and her unforgettable home cooking.

A celebration of life will be held in March in California. Family will send details to loved ones soon.

    Too: My love Queen Trena, A Beautiful Child of the Living Christ, Loved of the Almighty God himself, Daughter, Sister, Mother, Grand Mother, Friend, Mentor, Supporter, and lover of people. My life has changed dear sister of mine, turned upside down in a moment of time. Our lives are so connected and intertwined that the thought of being me without you never crossed my mind. Time, time, time is on our side; I said in my heart, whatever is not said today can be said tomorrow. Oh! how I miss the sound of your voice. I cry sometimes when I think about you and knowing you from the beginning of my life until the day you were gone from me. All the Love that filled your heart still remains with me today in your absence and in the hearts of our family. Your legacy lives on in the herts and minds of all of us who’s lives you have directly impacted for the better. I love You Sis “Queen Trena” Yesterday, Today and Forevermore.
