Tiana Malia Phipps
February 1, 2018 – April 24, 2019
Tiana Malia Phipps, 14 months old, of Cliffwood Beach, NJ, passed away on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune, NJ. Tiana was born on February 1, 2018 at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ.
Although her first months of life were spent in the hospital, she emitted joy through her beautiful eyes, smiles and laughter to each person she met, and everyone just fell in love with her. By the time she left the hospital, she was dubbed “Princess Tiana.” Once home, she continued to hold onto the title by ruling over the household by requiring that everyone be at her beck and call, especially her daddy. Tiana enjoyed spending time with her 3 sisters, Deja, Niya, Mariya and she also liked to play with her dog- Winnie.
Even in death, Tiana was still able to be a blessing to others by being an organ donor. So her light will continue to shine as her little heart beats on in the body of another child.
Tiana is survived by her parents, Tirell and Denise Phipps; her three big sisters, Deja, Niya & Mariya; Her nana and papa, Dawn & Richard; Grandma Marilyn; Aunties Moniece & Ashley; Great-Grandma Verna; Godmother Venus and a host of close cousins, great aunts; uncles and close family friends.
Visitation will be on Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 9am-12pm at the Neary Quinn Funeral Home, 39 South Street, Manasquan, NJ. Funeral services will be held following visitation at 12pm at the funeral home. Interment will follow at Marlboro Cemetery in Morganville, NJ.

1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18
Dear Denise, we grieve but we do not grief like people who have no hope for since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, we believe that when he returns, God will bring the believers who have died.
Beautiful and lovely Tiana is undoubtedly with her maker, in a place where there is no more pain but joy. She’s an angel of light who will watch over the entire family. Take comfort and consolation, knowing that her short life was well lived, touching so many people including me. Her resilience was amazing. God bless you and your family richly.
Our prayers will continue .
