Sanyiah Faith Villanueva was born on November 21st of 2010 to the proud parents Ashley and Pedro at Cooper Hospital in Camden NJ .As early as 5 month we would like to extend our thanks to Jomigel for helping Ashley raise Sanyiah as his own. He watched her grow to into a sassy strong baby girl. Unfortunately, just shy after her 8th birthday she lost a battle due to hospital negligence on December 27th of 2018, after only going in for liver failure on December 16th of 2018. Nyiah leaves behind her four siblings, Siani Destiny, Juliana Amor, Elias, and Ethan who she loved very much. She was known by Golda, Nyiah, Midget, Poopy Butt, and Pain in the butt. She attended Yorkship Elementary as a 2nd grader. She loved all her teachers and classmates.
Nyiah was the type that could brighten up world with just her big beautiful eyes and Her smile was very contagious. She left an imprint on all of our hearts. Her amazing personality she had was unique and very unforgettable. She was so kind hearted and thoughtful to others. She would even take her godmother Carolyn’s hot chocolate and give it to the less fortunate people. She would also, make her mother go into the store and by them food drinks and give them money. One of her biggest dreams was to create a foundation that can help and support the less fortunate. She was determined to change the world for the better on step at a time. In honor of Sanyiah Faith, Ashley will be creating a foundation with the remaining money from all the donations from family, friends and even strangers that did not know her but followed her story on face book, instagram and snapchat. The money will go towards the less fortunate people as much as possible, starting with her hometown Camden, NJ. The mission will be to make this foundation nationwide with the proper resources and support of others. Another dream of Sanyiah Faith was to be a police officer, who is what her Mother’s is pursuing; she also wanted to be a doctor one day to help little sick little children. Both dreams consisted of her helping the world and making it a better place.
Aside from her dreams, Sanyiah Faith loved to sing, dance, listen to music, and play outside with all her sisters and cousins. Her favorite things to play with were leggos, Barbies, and she absolutely loved to make slime. She also enjoyed playing dress up, doing her nails, and playing with makeup. She was such diva, who at only 8 years was already going on 25. As most people know, she enjoyed having her own performances singing Cardi B her favorite artist while muting herself to curse words. She was her mom’s twin with her personality strong, lovable, understanding, caring, and forgiving, a fighter and one sassy little girl. Sanyiah was her dad’s twin in the face. Sanyiah’s favorite things to eat were sushi (Philadelphia roll and California roll), uncrustables (grape flavor), and especially pizza for little creaser and dominos. Her favorite football team were the Cowboys she was so happy when they beat the eagles with other faces their last game and screamed of excitement and also loved to rub it in. Her favorite color was pink.
Although we can go on for hours talking about this sweet beautiful baby girl and the amazing things she loved or even the wonderful memories we all share with her. I would like to finish this by saying she will continue to live in all of us. Sanyiah Faith Villanueva will live through the two children who will have a 2nd chance at life because of her kidney donations. She will make an impact on this world long after she is put to rest. She will be missed dearly but never forgotten. Forever and a day we will all love and cherish the beautiful soul she was. Sanyiah Faith will be leaving behind a host of Siblings, Grandparents, God-parents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Teachers and many friends.
