Walande Brice

February 10, 1965 - June 19, 2021

Walande Brice, affectionately known by her family as “Wally”, age 56, of Newark, DE, passed away on Saturday, June 19, 2021.

Wally was born on February 10th, 1965 in a small village called Miragoane, Haiti. She migrated to the United States at the age of 17 and planted her roots in New York. She later moved to Delaware where she raised her children, expanded her career, served her church, and blossomed in her community.

The pride and joy of Wally’s life were her four boys David Brice, George “GJ” Jean-Louis, Marc-Allen Jean-Louis, Jordan Jean-Louis and her grandson Davion Brice. The six of them had an unshakable bond. She was the Queen surrounded by her Princes. Her boys were always her pillar of strength, source of help, encouragement, and love.

Grounded in her belief of the value of a higher education, she pursued a degree in Business Administration from the Wesley School of Business. She later began her tenure at Citi Group and was promoted to Assistant Vice President of Cash & Trade Processing.

Her passion to serve God was always at the center of her life. She served for many years as a lead singer in her choir at Victory Christian Fellowship. She spent countless hours doing what she loved which was sharing the love and positivity of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Her unwavering faith in the Lord molded her into the person we will always remember, a person who embodied optimism and positivity.

She was a vibrant woman, who had the ability to light up every room she entered, simply through her jovial presence. Over the years, she brought people together and was a support to many in their time of need. There are countless people in the room who can reflect on a time where Wally truly came through for them. In addition, she enjoyed dancing, fashion and most importantly loving people. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend who will forever be cherished.

Walande is survived by her mother, Rose Brice; children, David Brice, George Jean-Louis, Marc-Allen Jean-Louis and Jordan Jean-Louis; siblings, Lunie Lolo, Evens Brice, Landell Rely and Gelsomine Jovin; grandchild, Davion Brice; dearest cousins, Sabrina Francois and Vicky Francois; and many nieces and nephews.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 6 pm until 8 pm on Friday, June 25, 2021 at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE. A funeral service will be held the following morning at 9 am at the funeral home. Interment will follow in Gracelawn Memorial Park, 2220 DuPont Highway, New Castle, DE. Face coverings will be required for all those in attendance not immunized with the COVID-19 vaccine per the CDC and Governor of Delaware.
