Obituary for Eugenia Sylvia Raines

Eugenia Sylvia Raines was born June 26, 1949 to Eugene and Lucille Raines in Newark, New Jersey. She entered into eternal rest on September 18, 2018.

Eugenia attended school in the Newark, New Jersey school system. She later received a degree in Education from the California educational school system. However, instead of following a Teacher’s Career, she opted to enter into Show Business. This was a choice she made when she was about five years old, when her loving grandmother, Mrs. Omelia Kelly enrolled her in a pre-school that catered to talented children.

Eugenia passionately pursued her desire for entertaining throughout her entire life. Even in retirement she continued to accept small parts in TV and Stage shows.

Eugenia combined her career with motherhood when her son, Ronald Ahmad Derrick, was born on August 26, 1968, in Los Angeles, California.

Eugenia was preceded in death by her parents and her younger brother, Purcell Glen Raines.

Eugenia leaves to cherish her memory: her son, Ronald A. Derrick (Sandra Poyser Derrick); granddaughter, Kalah Adams; two sisters, Doreen and Wendy Johnson; two nieces, Jamilla and Samirah Johnson; her uncle, Earl Kelly (Dorothy Kelly); many cousins, Darlene Rae Price, Patricia Catino, James Brown, Janice Brown, Jean Kelly, Gary Henry, Serita Henry, Terrell Henry and Kita Henry; other relatives and a host of friends.
