A Glimpse of Her Life
Enjoli Lorei Mckinzie returned to her heavenly home on Thursday, January 16, 2020. Enjoli, aka “TOOTS or E” was born to Damita Collins, Willie Collins, and Larry Mckinzie on April 30, 1981, in Santa Clara, California. She was the eldest daughter of three children and served as a role model to her sisters, Dominique and Paris. She always pushed them to stay “leveled up” and keep pursuing their life ambitions. Enjoli accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age. She immersed in the Christian community that would be her lifelong support and was an active member at New Creation Bible Fellowship Church in Tracy, California, until her untimely transition.
Enjoli graduated from Yerba Buena High School in San Jose, California in 1999 and was actively pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Business
Administration at the University of Phoenix. She was employed at Bunzl Distribution Center in Tracy, California, since 2004 as an Accounts Receivable Representative.
Her smile was, indeed, a gift. Enjoli could light up any room with her smile and contagious laugh. She had a strong appetite for travel, Hawaii being one of her favorite destinations. Her designer handbags and her children say it best; she likes extra caramel drizzle on her caramel Frappuccino (diabetes in a cup, please). But, the most important thing to her was her children, Izayah and Ava. She loved her children with her whole heart, and she called them her miracles. Enjoli was proud and felt blessed to be able to provide her miracles with a solid foundation and unconditional love. Enjoli was the greatest mother to them, for them, and she will always be there to protect them.
For those who knew her best, know that Enjoli was all about her family. She loved us, she prayed for us, and now watches over us. Enjoli will forever be remembered by her son, Izayah Mckinzie, her daughter, Ava Jackson, her mother and father, Damita and Willie Collins, and Larry Mckinzie, her two sisters, Dominique Collins and Paris Collins, her nieces, Breyah Wilson and Kamayah Boxdell, nephew Josiyah Boxdell, her grandparents Roy and Anita Phillips, and Joyce Jefferson, and a host of uncles, aunts, and cousins.
Enjoli is preceded in passing by her grandmother and grandfather, Willie Collins Sr. and Lizzie Collins, and her great grandparents, Paul and Beulah Wilson, Della Phillips, and grandfather, Terry Mckinzie. Her extended family and dear friends will forever remember her, especially her smile. A rare light of sunshine has touched us all.
To her children, Izayah and Ava, we know she would like you to remember, “A Mother holds her children’s hands for a while, but their hearts, forever.” You have an Angel who will always be there.
