Alicia Darlene Aiken-Day passed away in the early morning of March 30, 2021 at 69 years old in Georgia of natural causes. Alicia was born on January 23, 1952 in Tiffin, OH to her deceased parents Vandetta Garvin and Theodore Hyde. Alicia was proceeded in death by her sons, Albert Damion Aiken and Alex Brandon Mykal Day. She is survived by her children, Alan Cory Aiken (Crystal), Alicia Aiken-Milbry (Stacey), Yvonnie Day-Booth and Alexis Day Gordon (Barry) and a host of Grandchildren, Great-Grandchildren, nieces, nephews, friends and extended family.

Alicia had 7 siblings that she loved dearly. She continued a relationship with them that allowed them to find creative ways to get together when getting in the car or on a plane was no longer an option. Alicia was the softest spoken, gentle, and caring woman a person could ever be blessed to be in the presence of. She grew up in a challenging time in Tiffin, OH and graduated from Columbian High School. She eventually moved to Toledo, OH under her mother. Alicia worked at Lucas County Department of Water for over 15 years. She spent her life being of service for others, keeping her independence and being a great provider for her family.

She had a unique gift of ministry that was not like what you originally see. She did not claim to be perfect; she didn’t go to school to minister. She was a great example of how Jesus taught us to minister. She met people where they were at. She did not pass judgement; she did not try to push them into being something they were not. She did not shun you for your faults and she treated people with respect no matter what their circumstance was. She saw more good in people than they many times saw in themselves. She forgave faster than she could remember their faults. She loved unconditionally, strongly and passionately.

Alicia left a legacy. A legacy of what true love is all about. She showed us in a time where so many are for themselves there is still somebody who cares. She left a legacy of family, hard work and the importance of giving back.

We have lost a gem! Aunt Alicia was the sweetest aunt you could have. An example in being mild- tempered, loving and caring! I will miss that soft voice saying “Ray-ray”! My heart hurts but especially for Lexi, her close friend and care-giver, Cory and Nikki. I also pray for her siblings, they are all so close and dearly love each other! May we all find comfort in knowing she knew of the hope and promises that we all can see her again! John 5: 28,29. I can’t wait!!

Aunt Alicia was a mild, gracious and wise woman. She will surely be missed. Sending my condolences to my cousins, Mom, Aunt and Uncles for your loss. May our joyful memories of the past and the wonderful hope (that she believed in) for the near future give us comfort. I will truly miss my Auntie!

My favorite aunt. I can't seem to wrap my head around this yet.

Aunt Alicia was the sweetest, most gentle and kind person.
She gave the best, most sincere advice, without judgment.
Over the last couple of years, as her health faded, we managed to stay in touch. She was so encouraging. Concerned about her siblings, she never complained about her situation.

She will be missed so much by so many of us.

With all of my love,

Vanessa
