Ms. Alivia Coleman Jillani

July 2, 1971November 11, 2020

Alivia Marie Coleman-Jillani was born on July 2, 1971 to Jackie Coleman and the late Elvie Girdy-Coleman in Victoria, Texas. Though she was only 49, she aged well like her favorite glass of wine. She attended Mac Arthur Elementary, James D. Ryan Junior High School and graduated from Jack Yates Senior High School in 1989. Alivia went on to attend Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma where she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree. To her dismay, she became disabled due to an inevitable accident. Although this life changing experience occurred, it did not hinder the Queen’s day to day common place.

Alivia began her Public Relations career in Sales at Renaissance Learning. She worked many years for different educational software companies. Alivia accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age. She fellowshipped at Cornerstone Community of Faith Church, but remained a faithful member at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. In her spare time, she absolutely loved to travel with her friends and family to new places all over the world. Alivia, the Diva herself made sure when she entered a room the Queen had arrived. Her flowing hair, captivating make-up, and glamorous attire made her the alluring woman to those who came across her path. She colored beautiful pictures in a “Motivate Your Life” coloring book filled with calligraphy words that brought peace and understanding to her life. Nothing brought her more joy than spending time with her beautiful niece Zyrie, rather if it were polishing their nails or playing in make-up while singing songs.

Alivia was preceded in death by her mother Elvie Girdy-Coleman, her grandparents Olen and Iva Girdy of Victoria, Texas and David and Augustine Williams of Austin, Texas. She leaves to cherish her memory, her father Jackie Coleman, sister Carrietta Coleman-Ve’An (Adrian), her beautiful niece Zyrie Ve’An, and a host of family and friends.

Hmmm!!! Death of Alivia has made me limb even though I have not loose any part of me. I will always keep her memory close to my hearts and hope time will do its best to dull the pain.

Myself and Alivia live in different continent but our friendship was stronger than closed relationships and we have always kept our communication going.
We always call and respond to each other anytime either have challenges and feel like talking to someone. Hmmm, since the day I got the news, have been thinking, who I will be confiding to.

Alivia’s death has really cause me pain and is devastating anytime I think about all the cherish, memories and especially our fears for the unknown future.

She was such a wonderful soul, she always comes up with kind words to encourage and make you focus. I pray the lord almighty keep her soul until I meet her again.

Alivia dearest
You were an angel who came to be my big sis. From the first time we meet you was more than my sis, you were my best friend, my consultant and my angel.
I would always cherish the moments of fun and cry we had together. But knowing now that your in a better place and knowing that I will see you again in the earthly paradise gives me hope. For we have had fun times in the Bahamas and even after you left we stayed in contact. Now I guess the only way we will talk is when I see you again. For you would always be in my heart.
Your lil sis in the Bahamas.

You have been a very special part in my life. We met in high school and I didn't have any friends my freshman year. You became my best friend and my mother loved you and your mother loved me as if I was her daughter as well. We graduated together and you were the only one my mother wanted me to go any where with. You were with me when I met the love of my life. Your soul was so beautiful and your spirit was so free. You were never a fake individual you always kept it real. If you were about to say something that you knew was not going to come out right you would say, " I am about to say something, so please don't be offended." Always polite and direct. We were the kids of Parkwood and the Charleston community. Our parents made sure we had the best of everything. You were a "Diva" always. You became disabled because of the automobile wreck but you never stopped being a "Diva" hair, make-up, and your attire was flawless. When I heard on Facebook you had passed away I didn't believe it. I started calling everyone I knew. Then I called your phone and your baby sister Carrie (our baby sister) answered the phone and she confirmed that you had passed that day. It hit me and I let out the loudest scream and fell to the floor. This whole entire week I was numb and I shut myself up in my house and just cried for a solid week. You will be missed "My Diva Princess" you are the epitome of a classy women in the highest degree. A poem from your favorite poet, Maya Angelou "Phenomenal Women Alivia Coleman." You Are!

I hired Olivia for a job in Houston ( Job Corps ) back in 1999. We were the same age we became friends . She was a smart and Godly young woman. She was a great speaker friendly and very impressive young woman. She did a free public announce for our office. I left my job and years later I saw her in a conference. Olivia had a great personality, beautiful eyes, great smile and godly heart. I am so blessed to have met her. She gave me a book when I left my job and wrote and encouraging message. I am sad to hear she has left us but I just wanted you to know she was a great person and a great friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
