Miaka Perry-Whitlock Obituary

Perry-Whitlock ~ Miaka Danyel Perry-Whitlock was born October 29th, 1986, in Jacksonville, Florida, to Bruce Perry and Joyce Finley.  A bright spirit from the start, Miaka's journey was marked by her commitment to education, compassion for others, and profound love for her family.

After graduating from Terry Parker High School, Miaka pursued her passion for justice by earning a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice at Florida A&M University, following in the footsteps of her father.  For over fifteen years, she dedicated herself to the field of social work, focusing her energy on protecting and advocating for children - a cause that held a special place in her heart.

Miaka's life was deeply intertwined with the love and support of her family.  She was preceded in death by her beloved grandmother, Agnes Perry, the matriarch of the Perry family and the apple of Miaka's eye.  She is survived by her grandparents, Bishop Rudolph (Estelle) McKissick Sr, Lovella Partridge, and grandmother-in-law, Luzieger Brown.

Miaka leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories. She is survived by her devoted husband, Delmar Whitlock, with whom she built a beautiful life filled with love and laughter. Miaka took immense pride in being a mother to her daughters, 10-month-old Mia and Layla Whitlock, who were the pride and joy of her life.  She reveled in spending quality time with her daughters, creating precious moments filled with laughter and joy.  In addition to her husband and daughters, Miaka is survived by her father, Bruce Perry, her best friend, and confidant.  She embraced her role as a big sister to her brothers, Bryce, and Brandon Perry, and took her duties seriously, being the guiding force in their lives. Miaka leaves behind a nephew, Bryce Perry, Jr., who brought immense joy to her life as one of her first "babies."   She also leaves to cherish her memory, her mother, Joyce Finley.  Miaka is also survived by her in-laws, who loved her dearly, including her mother and father-in-law, Rudolph and Olivia Whitlock, and her brother and sister-in-law, Shante, and Roshad (Desiree) Whitlock; her extended family includes uncles and aunts, with whom she shared a special bond and upbringing ~ Willie (Diane) Perry, George (Shenita) Perry, Glen Perry, Kevin Hollins, Keith Partridge, Rudolph (Kimberly) McKissick, Tina and Trina, Diane Scott; cousin/aunt, Vonlisa, that held a special place in her heart - Vonlisa was very special to her and was her go to person in all things; a host of cousins that were more like siblings that she loved dearly, Wilsean, Wilneshia, Gemyel, Charlisa, Keyiera, Kellyn, Shante, Jocelyn, Joshua, Janai, Shantrell.  Miaka's circle of friends was a testament to her vibrant spirit. She entrusted godmother duties to La’Porscha and Ne’Shaun for her daughter Mia. Her friend and mentor, Dionne Danner, held a special place in her heart.

As we bid farewell to Miaka, let us remember the warmth of her smile, the kindness in her heart, and the enduring love she shared with all who were fortunate enough to know her. May she rest in eternal peace.
