Nykeesha “Tudye” Hale

On Tuesday, October 19, 1982 in Hope, Arkansas a beautiful baby girl named Nykeesha LaShawn Hale was born to Lula Mae (Bowline) Brown and Tom Hale III. She was affectionally known as Tudye. Our beloved Tudye grew up in Hope, AR where she attended Clinton Primary and Beryl Henry Elementary Schools, and later Hope High School.

Tudye was a loving and compassionate person who never met a stranger. She had a beautiful smile that would light up your soul. She enjoyed traveling, listening to music, and basketball. Tudye loved traveling with her family especially with her sons, sisters and close friends.

In 2002, Tudye met Clystra “Dale” Brown and they remained a union until her untimely death, and to this union Clystra Jr. “CJ” and Braylon were born.

The relationship Tudye had with her siblings was not like any other. Tudye was a wonderful big sister and was always there to offer support or words of wisdom.
She was also a loving daughter, granddaughter, sister, spouse, niece, aunt and friend. Tudye’s funny, yet loving and caring, personality will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Nykeesha LaShawn Hale, at the age of 39, received her angel wings on Saturday, November 27, 2021. When you think of Nykeesha celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember life is fragile, short, and should be lived to its fullest.

Nykeesha is preceded in death by: her maternal grandparents, Kenneth “KC” Anderson and Leona Anderson; paternal grandparents, Tom Hale II and Betty Hale; and sister, Elizabeth Michelle Brown.

Nykeesha leaves to cherish her memories: parents, Lula Mae and Anthony Brown Sr., and Tom (Jakesia) Hale III; spouse, Clystra Brown Sr.; children, Clystra Brown Jr., Braylon Brown, Quintez Burton, Dominique Brown, Roderick Brown, Chris Rowe, Myesha Morine, Kearon Brown, and Kameron Blanchett; brothers, Kenneth Anderson, Anthony Brown Jr., Cody Hale, Emilio Williams, and Jessie Dismuke III; sisters, Latashia Hale, Kiara Hale, Antiesha Brown, Alicia Hale, and Bryce Hale; special uncle, Kay Coy Anderson; special friends, Crystal Wilson and Shamone Muldrew; and a host of  aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends
