Tina Chevonne (Brooks) Livingston
September 8, 1970 ~ October 19, 2022 (age 52) 52 Years Old
Tina Chevonne (Brooks) Livingston was born September 8, 1970, to James and Joyce Brooks in Sacramento, California. She was their first of seven children, and was the first daughter and the second grandchild of sixty-one grandchildren born to the lineage of Arthur and Azzie Lee Brown, her grandparents whom she has now joined in glory land!
She gave her life to Christ at the age of eight years old at the Del Paso Union Baptist Church in Sacramento, California, under the leadership of her grandfather, Rev. Arthur Brown. Tina was an inspirational leader in her Sunday School and Vacation Bible School classes, and she served on the usher board. She was also blessed with a wonderful voice and delighted in lifting the name of Jesus through choir participation.
During high school, Tina worked at McClellan Air Force Base in North Highlands, California, as a student aide. In 1988, she graduated with honors from Grant Union High School in Sacramento, California. She went on to attend Jarvis Christian University in Hawkins, Texas, from 1992 to 1994.
On August 11, 2001, Tina married Noel Clark Livingston. Two children, Jazmine Chevonne Brooks and Jordan Noelle Livingston, were nurtured and loved in their union.
Tina enjoyed a longtime career in property management. Her role as a Residential Property Manager was an awesome witness to her loyalty, her kindness, and her commitment to the well-being of those she served. Her superior work ethic and management skills allowed her to work in various states, including California, Oklahoma, and Texas. She was also a certified notary and worked part-time as a seasonal tax preparer for H&R Block. On various jobs, her kindness was a blessing in her caring for the elderly. After recovering from Guillain-Barre, Tina stayed home and volunteered at J.C. Austin Elementary School in Mesquite where her youngest daughter, Jordan, attended. She really enjoyed working and supervising the children with autism and was loved by the students, teachers, and administrators. She loved it so much that she applied for the teacher’s aide position at the school. Tina later returned to her property management career in which she was always an advocate for the residents whom she served. She was genuinely concerned for their overall well-being. She loved her residents, and her residents loved her. Anyone who knew Tina knew that she loved children and would always be willing to take them home with her. She truly cared for everyone she knew. Tina continued to serve her residents until her health declined in May of 2022.
