"It is not length of life, but depth of life - Emerson Ralph Waldo

The life of Malika Jessica Rose Florence Joseph seems far too short for those who knew and loved her. On Thursday, March 14, 2013, at the tender age of 23, she entered into her final rest.

Malika was born on April 26, 1989 to Malcolm and Brenda Joseph in Takoma Park, Maryland. Her birth signaled the arrival of someone special and instantly she became the adored little sister to Kteba, Jason, Elliott, Jean-Paul, and Jevaughn.

In her short time with us, Malika touched the lives of so many. Her quiet demeanor, radiant smile, determined spirit and classic stare endeared her forever in the hearts and minds of her loved ones.

Malika was a four year student at Pine Forge Academy in Pine Forge, Pennsylvania. She was a proud member of the graduating Class of 2007.

Raised in a spiritual household she loved God and attended church regularly. Most recently, Malika attended the early morning service at Emmanuel Brinklow SDA Church.

A Certified Nursing Assistant, Malika had a heart for the elderly and she focused her energies to their care and well-being. Over the years, Malika developed an interest in the family business and was often in the office to assist at the KBM Group.

Malika lived her life enjoying simple pleasures such as baking, playing with her baby nephew, Jonah, listening to music, going to movies and spending time with friends.

Malika was preceded in death by her father, Malcolm Joseph. In addition to her mother, Brenda and her siblings named above, Malika is survived by her grandparents; Dorothy Cantrell Dixon, and Willie Gullatt, a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends.

A celebration of her short but impactful life will be held on Friday, March 22, 2013 at 3pm at the Emmanuel Brinklow SDA Church, 18800 New Hampshire Avenue in Ashton, Maryland
