Our Father which are in Heaven…Matthew 6:9
Romanda was born on May 29, 1967 in Vicksburg, Miss., to Earnestine Carter and the late Oscar Dates.
Known to many as “Monday”, Romanda was raised in New Orleans, La. She attended Williams O. Rogers Elementary, A.J. Bell Junior High and Bonnabel High School. As an adult she moved to Wichita, Kan., to live with her sister Vennie. She later returned back to New Orleans.
Romanda met Steffon Sims of McDonough, Ga., in 1998, and was joined in matrimony December 17, 1999. No child was born from this union, but three were brought into the union by Steffon who she loved very dearly. Their names are Wesley Sims, Ivy Sims, and Armon Sims, all of Georgia.
Romanda was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, and she was in remission for three and half years. The cancer returned in 2010, and she was called home on Saturday, June 9, 2012. She was at home in Picayune, surrounded by her mother, sister, nephew, niece and nurse. On that day, God went into His garden and picked one of the most beautiful roses…He picked Romanda.
She was preceded in death by: her father, Oscar Dates; brother, Don Williams; maternal grandparents, Martha and Eddie Johns; paternal grandparents, Zella and Rube Dates; aunts, Dellana Peters and Lucille Gilmore; and uncles, Calvin Chatman and Bay Carter.
