On January 2, 2000, a beautiful chocolate-colored baby girl named Kaliea Janiece Munn ("Black Beauty") was born to Kieliema Porter and Lee Munn. She departed this life on Sunday morning, May 28, 2017 in Branson, MO. As a child, Kaliea spent her Wednesday evenings studying the Holy Bible at Maranatha Baptist Church. Years later, the family became members of Floyd T. Jeans CME Church in Tollette, AR where Kaliea was first baptized. In 2011, they transferred their membership to First Providence Outreach Ministries in Nashville, AR where Kaliea, along with her mother and sisters, underwent baptism. Kaliea faithfully served in the church's youth choir and praise team.
During her school years, Kaliea played for the AAU Lady Hurricanes and Nashville’s Scrapperette Basketball Team. She was a proud member of the USA Track & Field’s Success Performance Track Club. At Nashville High School, she was the third leg in the 4x40 relay and placed 2nd in the district and 4th in the state. The baby sister of the “Fab 4” always lit up the room with her sassy personality, unique qualities and bright smile.
Kaliea was preceded in death by her grandfather, Bennie Stuart, great-grandparents Elmore & Valdee Williams, Major White, Sonny & Katherine Porter; great-great grandparents Eddie & Christine Black, and mentor/godfather Antonio Finley.
