Givens, Cameren C.

Cameren Cheri Givens was born on April 30, 2003, at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas to Valarie C. Givens and Ricky Jackson.  Cameren departed from this life on August 26, 2016 peacefully in the arms of her mother at their home in McKinney, Texas, she was 13 years old.

Cameren was courageous and a very strong fighter during her life-long illness; an illness that meant most of her time was spent in and out of Children’s Medical Center in Dallas.  During this time she touched so many lives across the globe.  In her own way, Cameren kept faithful and strong…always giving you her big smile.

When her illness was under control, Cameren attended school.  She first attended Centerville Elementary in Garland, then Keeley Elementary in Rowlett, and finally, Wester Middle School in Frisco, where she was known and loved by students and staff for her smile, her laugh, and her undeniable spirit. Cameren loved playing video games with her nephew Caiden and listening to her favorite artists, Michael Jackson and Taylor Swift.  Later in her life Cameren developed a love for musicals and movies like Frozen and Annie.

Cameren will be missed by her mother, who devoted 13 years of her life to daily being right by Cameren’s side, as well as many other family and friends.   Cameren is survived by her parents as well as her sister, Crystal Givens, and her brother, Christopher Givens, her three step-sisters, Breanica, Kayla, and Kyra Jackson, and her nephew, Caiden Givens, all of Texas.  Cameren is also survived by her grandmother, Sarah Minor of El Dorado, Arkansas, her grandfather, Booker (Sadie) Minor, of Little Rock, Arkansas and a host of relatives and friends.

We all love you Cam-Cam.  You will always be in our hearts.

A Celebration of Cameren’s life will be held at 4:00 P.M., Friday, September 2, 2016 at North Dallas Funeral Chapel located at 2710 Valley View Lane, Dallas, Texas 75234 with a reception to follow.
