Obituary of Ayanna Alexandria Alsobrooks
On May 31st, 2023, Ayanna Milo Alsobrooks, of Virginia Beach, Va, passed away suddenly in her home in Virginia Beach. She was just four months shy of her 24th birthday.
Milo was born September 15, 1999 in Monroe, NC. She graduated from Kempsville High School in 2018. She loved many things, perhaps none more than doing makeup, listening to music, learning about nature, exploring her city, sharing movies, and spending time with her friends and family. Music was one of her passions, and anyone who knew her well knew that Harry Styles was her favorite artist. Her family laughs about the day she discovered One Direction broke up.
Determined to live a life filled with adventure, Milo took her inquisitive spirit with her everywhere. She was an advocate for many, especially marginalized communities and those others may consider underdogs. When a student was punished for wearing an off-the-shoulder shirt in high school, that student told Milo first. Deciding that the dress code unfairly impacted women students, that student, Milo, and Milo’s sister, Julia, decided to stage a protest the following Monday. They gathered other students, they stole their father’s shirts (for the revolution!) and painted them with quotes they hoped would inspire onlookers, and they proceeded to protest. That was Milo’s nature, to care about what impacted the world around her. She cared for animals and humans alike, but no animal was more special to her than her fur-bestie, Daisy, whom she has raised from a pup.
Milo was a brilliant, creative, and kind soul who touched so many. And, anyone who has ever been hugged by her knows exactly how healing her touch could be. Simply put, she gave the absolute best hugs; they were the kind that had the power to make your world alright. Milo had one of the biggest and most gentle hearts this world has ever seen. She was so full of all of the best things, and anyone who crossed her path was better because of it.
Milo is survived by her mother, Takeya Charles, father, Al George, Jr.; siblings Julia D. Charles and Jaden George; Great grandmother, Frances Jenkins; Grandparents: Lorraine Tutt and Rickey Parker; Aunts and Uncles: Julia & Nicole Charles-Linen, Antonio Charles, Lemar Charles, and Isaiah Tutt, as well as tons of cousins, family, and friends who love her and will miss her greatly.
Rest in Peace our Ladybug, our Cinnamon Roll, our Princess, our beautiful soul, our Milo and our Venn.
We will Always love you.
