Cherish Denean Redic was born on November 7, 1972, to the parentage of John Edward Redic, Sr. and Pervie Lee Willis, in Dallas, Texas. She transitioned on December 12, 2020, in Garland, Texas.
She received her formal education in Dallas, Texas, at A. Maceo Smith High School and North Dallas High School. She later went on to study Accounting.
Affectionally regarded as “Pooh”, Cherish was loved and adored by her family, especially her siblings. According to her sister, Charntell: "When our mother brought her home from the hospital and put her in my arms, she had the cutest little rings around her eyes like Winnie the Pooh! So, I called her “Pooh!” Of course, as she got older, she did not like it but, she was and will always be my little sister “Pooh!”"
Cherish was fascinated with Africa and the African culture and became an entrepreneur in African artifacts and fashion design. She enjoyed gospel music, love to sing, and often organized childrens' singing groups from within the family. A great communicator who never met a stranger, Cherish was a social flower, or, better yet, a beautiful flower child.
She was married to Muhedin Hussein for six years. To their union, four adorable children were loved and nurtured.
Cherish will be fondly remembered for her adventurous, compassionate, outspoken, generous, and witty nature. She lived and loved life fearlessly. She always had sympathy for the condition of others, and she delighted in supporting the needs of others. She had an unforgettable humor. Cherish will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Cherish was predeceased by her father, John Edward Redic, Sr.; sister, Gwendolyn Shelia Willis-James; and brother, John Edward Redic, Jr.
Those left to cherish precious memories include her children: Damaceo Redic, Amina Hussein-Cooper, Najib Hussein, and Hakeim Hussein; three grandchildren: Trevon Redic, Taevion Miller, and Princess Charlie Cooper; mother, Pervie Redic; and a multitude of relatives and friends.
