On December 18, 2022, Raven Denise Francis-Leger went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, where she is now freed from her earthly pain and suffering.

Her excitement about her new life in her Heavenly Home comes after an extended period of illness in which reliance on her faith was indispensable.

Raven Denise Francis made her entry into the world as a blessing to Caffery Delano Francis, Sr. and Naomi Nicole Lawrence on May 10, 1990, in Port Arthur, Texas.
