Asia Antoinette Turner was born May 18, 1993 in Chicago, IL to Monica Turner and Reggie Little.
Asia affectionately known as “Pickle” and “Beautiful”, attended Veterans Middle School, graduating from Oak Forest High School. She worked at Chili’s as an assistant manager, later taking on “Ameristar Casino” as a second occupation.
On June 24, 2013, Asia gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Layla Marie Turner (“Sweet Pea”). Sweet Peas was the love of Asia’s life, until Noah Carter Baker (“Huggy Buggy”) entered the world on November 27, 2017. Asia took joy in being the mother of two happy healthy children. Asia was a very thoughtful, generous and humbled person. The energy she gave was contagious. If you were feeling bad she certainly made you feel better, with her funny wit and outgoing spirit. You couldn’t do anything other than love her. Asia enjoyed music, singing and dancing… and boy oh boy did she love fashion. If the lipstick wasn’t right she would let you know it. Asia took pride in being a mother, she loved her family and she loved her friends.
Asia leaves to cherish her precious memories, two loving children, Layla Maria Turner and Noah Carter Baker; a devoted grandmother, Mozelle “Ma” Turner; a caring warm hearted mother, Monica Turner; father, Reggie Little; (her dad) Vernon Runia; one sister, Amore Little; two brothers, Reginald and David Little; grandfather, Robert Willis; a grandmother, Arlena Little; five uncles, Marcus (Kendra) and Robert Turner, Antonio, Fernando and Shikar Little; two aunts, Lonniece (Richard) and Khieha Little; a special friend, Erica Solis; and a host of other family and friend.
