Annalise Miliani Jimenez, 12, of Lakeland Florida made Heaven her eternal home on September 30, 2020 at her home. She was born on April 21, 2008 in Lakeland Florida to Jadira Jimenez and Daniel Jimenez.
Surviving are her parents Jadira Jimenez and Daniel Jimenez; her brothers Jorge Alvarez and Joevanni Jimenez; maternal grandparents Jorge and Elsie Garced; maternal aunt Ja’llissa Garced and Paternal Grandmother Eugenia Torres.
Her Paternal Grandfather preceded her in death.
Annalise Miliani was a twelve-year resident of Lakeland Florida where she lived and was a student at Lakeland Academy Prep. Alongside her family, she occasionally attended church at Free Life Chapel and as a young child accepted the Lord into her life. She preferred to be in the main sanctuary as she enjoyed Pastor Scott Thomas’ messages.
Miliani was a bright child with a very high IQ scoring 1 point away from being deemed a genius. She was in the 7th grade and would always describe school as boring. With a smile on her face her grandmother described her as a spicy soul with a little bit of attitude. She always wore a hoody and a scrunchy on her wrist but never in her hair, so she always had messy hair.
She loved drawing, art, and her cell phone where she would create animations. She also loved to read to her little brother and was very protective of her family’s emotions. Her protective strength was displayed as she always wore a smile even when she was hurting on the inside. She was a fighter and it was evident at her birth, born at 27 weeks, weighing only 2.9 ounces. She left a mark on this world that goes way beyond her years on this earth. Her presence will forever be missed, and the memory of her presence will last a lifetime… This is not goodbye but see you in a little while!
Condolences may be sent to the family at Gentry-Morrison Funeral Homes.
