Once upon a time there was a little princess named Ta’Riya Marann Manley who was born August 23, 2009 in Columbus Ohio, to Tiffany Y. Ellis and Randian D. Manley. Ta’Riya was always a happy little girl, blessed with a contagious million dollar “SMILE”. Ta’Riya was loved by all those who knew her. She enjoyed being with her family, attending school and cuddling with her mother. She also loved music and was known as a sparkling “Fashionista". Ta’Riya loved attending her brother Travis' football and basketball games as she was his number one fan. Ta’Riya attended Austintown Middle school where she brought a ray of sunshine to her 7th grade classroom.

C. L. Ellis, Emma Murphy and James Murphy; paternal grandparents Mary K. Williams, Alice Gatewood, Cooper L.
