Nehtiah Lutece Garnett (Dynesty Kartel) was born October 28, 1984 in Xenia, OH to Candy (Garnett) Vaughan and Ralph (Twinkie) Donaldson. She departed this early life on May 19, 2021 at Hospice of Dayton at the age of 36. Nehtiah was a loving mother of two sons Kanye Garnett and Tius Wilks III. She was engaged to fiancé Tius Wilks II who was the love of her life. Family was everything to Nehtiah and she made sure to let everyone know how much she loved them weather it was through a phone call, text, or social media. She always took honor in being a mom and fought hard every day to be her best self. She treasured her sons and embraced every moment with them developing memories to last a lifetime.

Nehtiah was strong and confident she always reminded her sons to be the exact same; STRONG and CONFIDENT. Nehtiah controlled her own destiny and she set out to live her life the way she wanted. She never lost hope or sight of the simple things in life. In her last days she kept saying “I just want to make memories.”, and she did just that by touching the lives of everyone through her strength, determination, and will. Nehtiah will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

She was preceded in death by her grandmother Kathy Howard and Great Uncle Jeffrey Garnett.

Nehtiah leaves to cherish her memories: Great Uncle Gregory Garnett; Mother Candy (Garnett) Vaughan and Father Ralph (Twinkie) Donaldson; Uncles Marc Garnett & Michael Garnett; siblings Shaton Edwards and Andrew Vaughan Jr.; Fiancé Tius Wilks II; children Kanye Garnett and Tius Wilks III; and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Professional arrangements entrusted to W.E. Lusain Funeral Home and Crematory.
