Towanda Peppers

Tawanda peppers, a 50 year old resident of Nashville, Tennessee passed away Thursday, June 16, 2022. She was born to Ruby Jefferson and Robert Lucas being their 1 of 2 daughters. Kushan Russell and Towanda had a bond that showed the true meaning of "I AM MY SISTER'S KEEPER".

Although legally divorced she never denied the love and appreciation she had for Gordon Peppers Ill for helping raise her four children: Kemontinez “Tez” Whitefield, Demarkez “Dee” Whitefield, Gordon Darnell Peppers, and Cedrick Peppers.

After graduating from McGavock high school, she quickly found that her passion was serving her community through education. She served 18+ years with Metro Nashville Public school system both inside and outside the classroom. After obtaining her commercial driver’s license, she expanded her passion and started driving for MTA, Greyhound, and Church. Despite the many jobs obtained, she always found time to travel with one of her best friends she liked to call her partner in crime, Latiesha Marable. Gatlinburg, Tennessee was one of her favorite and most memorable places to visit every single year. Whenever Towanda was asked why she traveled so much, her response was always "I'm living my best life”.Towanda's goal was to hit all 50 states and you would think she meant this year because she probably hit 10 before March.

Towanda was an active member of the organization 'Ladies Of Pandora' and Greater Harvest Church of God where she served in any way that she could. 98% of Towanda's Pride and joy came April of 2012 when she obtained her first and only grandchild Keyon Whitefield. She did everything for Keyon. One of her favorite things to do with her grandchild was traveling to the swimming pool which was the highlight of her week right before her departure.

Towanda leaves to forever cherish her memory, four sons Kemontinez “Tez” Whitefield, Demarkez “Dee” Whitefield, Gordon Darnell Peppers, and Cedrick Peppers; one grandson Keyon Whitefield; mother, Ruby Jefferson and numerous relatives, church members, and collegues who loved her dearly. 

Please keep the Peppers family in your thoughts and prayers.
