Alesha Laveda Cooper, age 41, of Compton, California was called home to be with the Lord on December 14, 2020 at Good Samaritan Hospital. 

Alesha was a warm spirit who touched the hearts of many!

She was a daughter, born in Torrance, California, on September 27, 1979 to Willie Lee Cooper and Darlene Williams Cooper.  Alesha was a happy child that grew up with Christian values that would carry her throughout her life.  She is sorely missed by her mother, Darlene Lee of Fontana, California and has joined her father, Willie Lee Cooper in heaven.

She was a wife and a mother to Taliyah (10) and Nyla (7) McKinnon, who remain in the care of their father James McKinnon; and twins Sarah, Sarai (4), and Loyal (3) Davis who remain in the custody of their father George Davis.  These girls were Alesha’s pride and joy.  After several failed childbirth experiences, Alesha continued to give God the glory and he blessed her with five beautiful baby girls.


Laveda as she was known to her sisters, was the baby of five-siblings.  She will be sorely missed by Nena (Demetrick) Westbrook of Middleburg, Florida, Tonia (Jeremy) Johnson of Gilbert, Arizona, Kori (Chris) Benford of Live Oak, Texas and Shawnda Bass of Simi Valley, California.  Her memory will remain forever in their hearts and minds.    

Alesha’s personality was larger than life, and she was very creative. She loved to sing from an early age; as a teenager she began writing and rapping her own lyrics and by the time she was a young adult she expanded her talents to singing and producing music.  Alesha loved playing sports and excelled in basketball and track at both Jurupa Valley High and Fontana High and was one of the founding members of the “Fohi” Stepping team.  

After graduating from Fontana Highschool in Fontana, California, Alesha pursued her passion for healthcare by studying at Riverside Community College. She went on to have a successful career doing what Alesha did best, caring for others. Alesha was a strong woman who lived a hard life at times, but always made the best of every situation. She always had a smile on her face and a scripture to direct her path… and sometimes yours.  One of these scriptures was Matthew 5:8, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God,” Alesha had nothing but joy in her heart for others.  She would be your biggest supporter and loved to see others win.  She had a pure heart, and this assures us she is with God.

Anybody that knew Alesha knew that she was always on point with style. She took much pride in her home and her children, all affectionately adorned in pink, red or animal print. She always found something to be grateful for and to smile about. Even in the darkest of times Alesha was quick to crack a joke or make up a funny song to suit the occasion.  She was always camera ready and made sure her babies were too. A picture speaks a thousand words and she made sure to capture every moment.  She left behind a photo journal of her very full life, her love, and her hopes for those who meant the most to her.

Pooh as she was affectionately known to family, will live on in the hearts and minds of her five children, her mother, her four sisters, six nieces, five nephews as well as numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, and beloved friends.  Her remains will lay in rest with her mother Darlene Lee until September 2021, when a post Covid19 memorial will take place at a cemetery to be determined.
