On Tuesday, January 20, 1987, Brittany Bonet Alexander burst forth as a bountiful beautiful blessing. That was the beginning of many great things to come…
Mt. Erie Christian was entrusted with her care from infancy through elementary school. There Brittany began to blossom in her own right. She also became a Girl Scout and earned several badges. At the tender age of ten Brittany expressed her love for the Lord, acceptance of Jesus Christ as her Savior and was baptized at Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church by the late Pastor Izey J. Bradford Sr. She was active in the church, attending services regularly, serving in the Youth Choir and Youth Ministry.
Brittany continued her education at St. Rita’s Catholic School; Christian Academy of Chula Vista; Hilltop Senior Highschool; and Southwestern College where she earned an Associates of Arts Degree in Child Development.
Being a “boss” from birth Brittany began working at a young age. She had fun in the sun with Aquatica Water Park; boldly repped red, yellow, blue and white for Hot Dog on the Stick; chilled at Coldstone Creamery; and stayed on point at Target before planting her feet with Homeland Security as a Transportation Security Administration Officer in 2007. Brittany was a dedicated worker with a strong work ethic who grew within the ranks.
In 2016 she joined the National Deployment Office (NDO) team and in 2017 was promoted to Lead Transportation Officer. As an NDO team member Brittany traveled across the United Stated providing support. Her footprints have been delicately and permanently etched into many cities including Barrow, King Salmon and Yakutat, AK; Phoenix, AZ; Washington, DC; Bonita Springs, Ft. Meyers Beach and Ft. Wharton, FL; Atlanta, GA; Des Moines, IA; Louisville, KY; Nantucket, MA; Dixon, MT; Fargo, ND; New York, NY; Canton, OH; and Springfield, OR. As a Daddy’s girl, nothing was left undone during her traveling. Brittany too made sure her parents felt her love and appreciation by having “surprise” giftings delivered regularly.
Brittany had the biggest of hearts and truly treasured each of her relationships. She was an amazing daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and colleague. She was funny, witty, encouraging yet stern, had no pretense, and put on no airs. She was the soulful, independent, and calm a natured voice of reason who would often say, “You need to simmer down.” Brittany was also very kind, generous and looked out for everyone.
Her babies were her nephew’s, niece, God children and furry pooches. She was present for most of their births and every celebration. Brittany also regarded her besties as family who affectionately nicknamed her Butafli because “she was free to spread her wings like a beautiful butterfly.” They lived, laughed and journeyed together many years. She also developed special bonds with NDO colleagues across the nation who too became like family.
On August 27, 2021, Brittany answered the call from the One who loved her more than all and returned to eternity. She is greatly missed. Brittany was preceded in death by her father David Alexander Jr.; nephew Davon Allen; and niece Dajahana Allen. Cherishing her precious memory are her beloved mother Beverly Alexander; grandmother Gladys Smoot; sisters Nicole Alexander and NaTasha (Chris) Haywood; Godbrother Kenneth (Shanina) Woods Jr.; nephews Jaylan (Sara) and Javon Haywood; niece Jayda Haywood; as well as a host of other family members, extended family members and friends. Rest sweetly Brittany Butafli Alexander, until we meet again. You are forever safe in His arms.
