Rhianna was born and raised in Greenwood and Philipp, she graduated from East Tallahatchie High School and was attending Delta State University where she was preparing to make teaching her career before she left this earth much too soon. Rihanna expressed her love for others with huge hugs. She would be the first person to sit down with someone who looked lonely. Her favorite thing was to give people compliments. She loved seeing the smile on their faces when she encouraged them. Her creative writing, jewelry, and cosplay hobbies we're just a few of the activities she most enjoyed. She had many friends from high school, college and Internet groups who have expressed how much she touched their lives. Of course she was loved by all of us on both sides of her family.
Preceded in death by her mother, Vivian Brower Foster, she is survived by her father; Jason Billings of Kosciusko, her two aunts;, Lea Hammons (Joel) of Ruleville, Judy Nail (Glenn) of Greenwood and an uncle; Randall Brower (Amy) of Tanana, AK.
Her Pallbearers will be Joel Hammons, Larry Earp, Danny Adams, James Winters, Randall Brower and Stacy Hargett. Kerry Pernell will be an honorary pallbearer.
