Ms .Tyra Ri’Chelle Innocent was born May 13th 1995 in San Antonio, TX to Nialija Gomez-Jones & Jimie Innocent and departed on August 29, 2023.
She graduated from Denbigh High School in 2013 & lived to be a wonderful & loving mother. She was alway the most girly person in the room, but was fierce at heart. She loved playing dress up when she was younger and continued playing with her daughter as she got older.

She played basketball until she was 13 with her two younger sisters, and would beat up her older brother as a hobby. During her younger years she would spend summers with her father in sunny Florida or traveling with her grandparents to North Carolina. Tyra had the biggest heart and was often the funniest person in the room without knowing it or trying.

Her family and friends will always find laughs & smiles in her memory. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Eila Nae Innocent; mother, Nialija Gomez-Jones; father, Jimie Innocent; stepfather, Sh’Juan Gomez-Jones; brother, Tyreek Innocent; two sisters, Tylesa Innocent & Tyne’ Innocent; and Grandparents, Wanda & Claude Hewlin; uncles, aunts, cousins and other family and friends. 

It is the desire of the  Innocent/ Jones family that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
