Markita Landers Obituary

Markita Landers, 45 years young, was called home on January 14, 2024 surrounded by loved ones as she took her final breath. 

Markita was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Mark & Gerena Landers. She lived in Philadelphia until 8 years old. She relocated to the Virginia Beach area and attended Brandon Middle School before graduating from Salem High School. She happily worked for Cox Communications for 21 years and ended her career as a Cox Business Complex Billing Analyst II.

Markita was a diehard fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. She faithfully watched every game day! She was also a devoted 76ers fan. Markita represented Philly to her core! Markita was incredibly family oriented. She loved her sister, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and our entire family with her whole heart. She was the glue of the family and always made it her mission to be there for every special moment.

Since a little girl, she emanated light into every room she entered, with a smile so radiant it turned the coldest heart warm. Markita gave freely, loved hard and laughed even harder. She knew the value of life even as she fought for her life for the last 5 years. Markita knew intimately God's love, grace and mercy as He kept her, cherished her and made her His testimony. The power she held within her was truly God sent and she was a beaming example of truly being "God's masterpiece".

Preceded in death by parents, Mark & Gerena Landers and niece, Brittany Landers-Morgan. 

She is survived by her children, Keyana & Jermaine; best friend, Eric Dickerson; siblings, Sherita Morgan (Vincent & Josiah) and Michael Landers (Kim & Mark); nieces and nephews, Michael (Kisha & Brittini), Ashley (Rick, Aaden & Morgan) and Maurice (Crystal); aunts, Diane, Jackie (Derrick), Michelle (Pete) and Wendy; close friends, Keisha, Michele, Ann, Sophia, Sandy, Nakia, Taconya, Derrick, Red and Donya; and a host of other family and friends whom she loved with everything she had. 


Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
