Abrahms, Chaquitah

July 27, 1944 - January 19, 2014

Chaquitah Olitha Mary Abrahms, age 69 of McKinney, Texas passed away on January 19, 2014.

Born to the late Marguerite and Winroe Abrahms on July 27, 1944 in New Orleans, LA, Chaquitah graduated from college having completed her studies in nursing and secretarial work. She worked for Sewerage and Water Board for thirteen years when she retired. Chaquitah Abrahms is survived by two brothers, Adams Abrahms and Kent Abrahms, two children, Mailan Ordone and Quinn Ordone, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by one son.


Chaquitah was a active and vibrant woman with a kind, caring heart.
Services will be held in New Orleans, LA at a later date.



God Took Her To His Loving Home
God saw her getting tired,
a cure was not to be.
He wrapped her in his loving arms
and whispered, “Come with me.”
She suffered much in silence,
her spirit did not bend.
She faced her pain with courage
until the very end.
She tried so hard to stay with us
but her fight was not in vain,
God took her to His loving home
and freed her from the pain.


Arrangements are under the direction of

ARIA Cremation Service and Funeral Home

mailan (daughter) says:

I am at a loss for words to express my sadness for the loss of my mother. I know heaven just received one of the most special angels. I have learned life-long lessons through my mom’s kindness and in her memory, I will walk through life with a bigger heart. Life is short and hers was short lived. I will always carry her in my heart.

Mailan (daughter) says:

For most of us, it was our mother who taught us to pray. We can help repay her for that gift of faith by praying for the repose of my mother’s soul.

O God, who hast commanded us to honor our father and our mother; in Thy mercy have pity on the soul of my mother, and forgive her her trespasses; and make me to see her again in the joy of everlasting brightness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen

Chaquita was charming, pleasant, and cheerful. It was a delight to work with her. She made us laugh and we respected her wisdom. She left us too early.

May the Lord hold and keep the family strong. We loved her but God loved her most, so rest on my friend.

I’m sorry for the loss of your mother and my sister, but I believe that Chaquitah is in a better place, no more pain and suffering, hospitals, needles etc.
I know she is missed.

Ms. Chaquitah, you left too soon but you are now an angel in heaven looking down on all. You will be remembered for your grace and dignity. May your sweet and gentle soul rest in peace. Amen

You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. Be gratiful and cherish the time you spent with her, the good the bad and the fun you shared with her.
The Love, the care, and the attention you showed your mother is priceless.
Mailan, you gave Chaquitha her roses while she could still smell them. Your loving care for your mother has not gone unnotice, your Father in Heaven has seen them and will reward you.
Weeping may endure for a night but Joy comes in the morning. Ps.30:5

Nadine Destouet says:

Chaquitah was both my mother’s cousin (Maxine Bell Davis) and also to my father (Herman John Davis.) I am so sorry for your loss. Dad is there in to greet here along with all other family and having a good time sharing memories. Be happy for the time we shared with our loved ones here on earth and now she is in the hands of Our Lord and Savior. Maxine is doing well as I visit with her as much as I can as long as she stays with us to enjoy. She and Nelvolia share a room together here in California. Our prayers will always be with you as you are now at peace. God bless you all.

ToniB says:

Mailan (daugher) says:

Hi Mom:

Missing you every minute of every day. I love you.

Mailan (daugher) says:

Hey Mom Its me again, just wanting you to know how much you are loved and missed. Rest sweet angel.

Mailan (daugther) says:

Hi Mom: Its been cold here, snow, slush, just want to stay inside and stay warm. Zack says hi, he is doing well swimming around in his bowl. We miss you and I love you. Talk to you again soon.

Your Daughter says:

Mama you will always be the queen in my life, for all times.

Your Daughter says:

I don’t think I will ever get over you not being here. Missing you deeply. Sending all my love up to the heavens.

Quinn Ordone says:

Should I be feeling guilty, was there something I didn’t do?
Did I not do enough to show all the love I had inside for you?
If you could say three words to me, would they be the ones I’d want to hear?
When I knock on heavens door for you will you push me away or hold me near?
There’s a million questions that I have inside,
And a million more that keep coming to mind,
Like where are you now and are you free from all your pain?
If someone asked you about me would you even remember my name?

I hope I’ve never left you disappointed or ever let you down,
That all you’ve done is smile for me and upon me you’ve never frowned,
I want you to be proud of me, in the many years how far I’ve come,
From the smallest to the biggest things that I have ever done.
Some feelings sink so deep into the heart that only loneliness can help you find them again.
Some truths are so painful that only shame can help you live with them.
Some things are so sad that only your soul can do the crying for them.
I have been silently crying inside until I’m numb.
Please forgive me for my day will soon come.
Rest in Peace

Your Daughter says:

Mom it has been extremely hard being here without you. I wish my pain would just go away. I wish everyday to see your smiling face, but know you won’t be there. I try to believe you are in a better place and not be selfish to want you here. I love you so much and I hope you are in heaven with your wings flying and soaring high and laughing with all the joy in your heart that you deserve. I love you Mom.

Your Daughter says:

Hi Mom:
Thought about you today, for once I was smiling and not crying. Thought about how we used to laugh together and how I use to tickle you and you could not do anything but laugh. I really miss you. But I am trying to be strong everyday. Keep smiling and know that you are truly missed.

Your Daughter says:

Hi Mom: Its Father’s Day and I just wanted to say Happy Day to you since you were Father and Mother to us. I miss you so much and know you are free from all the ills and misfortunes of this world. You are now spreading your wings and soaring high. Love you.

Your Daughter says:

Just wanted you to know that you are still here in my heart and on my mind. Love you always Mom

Your Daughter says:

Just cannot get you off my mind, you are always in my heart and I miss you.

Daughter says:

I look up in the sky and talk to you. What I wouldn’t give to hear you talk back.

If I had a flower each time I thought of my Mother, I could walk my garden forever.

Miss You

Daughter says:

You are so missed during this holiday season. Will truly miss your wonderful cooking for Thanksgiving, now I must take your place and prepare the meal. I love you mom and may your soul be at peace.

Daughter says:

Hi Mom: Cooked Thanksgiving dinner and everyone was happy, turned out really well, though we missed your potato salad and your pies, we missed you the most. Be at peace and know that you are loved.

Your Daughter says:

Hi Mom: Can’t help but think about you, you are always on my mind. I can’t help but to cry every time I see a picture of you in my mind. I miss you so much. Though I tried so hard to keep you here and was by your side until the end, I still wish I could have done more. I love you. Rest In Peace My Angel

Mailan, I am so sorry to hear about your MOM. I just found this out on yesterday(5/24/15). My daughter was bringing something for your mom to your uncle’s house. I’m deeply sorry for you and your brother’s lost. She and I had some good times and laughs together (this ole country girl). She will be greatly MISSED! Love YOU!!

Your Daughter says:

Everyday and every minute you are truly missed. I love you so much. The pain just seems to exist and never go away. But I know you are no longer hurting and I just wanted to be selfish and keep you here as long as I could because I never wanted you to leave. I know you are in heaven in peace and I just want you to know that I am trying to be all that you taught me to be, a good mother and person to all I come in contact with. Thanks MOM

Hi Mom wish you were here so I could talk to. It is so hard sometimes not having you here. I miss you so much. Love you

Mailan says:

Hi Mom, it’s been a while. I am really missing you. It’s hard not having you here. I feel alone even though I have the boys, it’s not like having you. But we are smothering each other with love. I know you are at peace and I try to believe you are in a better place. I love you, your daughter

Mailan says:

Hi Mom: Always in my heart never forgotten. Love your daughter

Daughter says:

Mom time is passing so fast. 2016 is almost over, but my heart still aches for not having you here. I try to put on a smile, so that your grandkids do not have to see me cry. I wish you were here to help with all that is going on this holiday season. I try to do what I can to make things festive. You will never know how much you are missed, but I ask God to always watch over you and keep your soul at rest. Please tell Grandma, Ernest and Uncle Kent that we miss them also and to be at peace. I love all of you and miss you.

Your Daughter says:

Well Mom it’s 2017 and I know this year will be great for us all. Even though you are not here I still feel like you are sometimes. I will never stop missing you. Always remember that I truly love you and miss you dearly.

Mailan / daughter says:
