Obituary

Badriyyah Nasheed Ali (Brenda Williams) was born on April 17,1953. She was raised in Elizabeth where she attended Elizabeth school system. She graduated from Battin H.S then furthered her education at Essex County College

Badriyyah met her ex-husband Abdul-Rahmaan Ali and from that union they had 3 beautiful daughters. Even after the divorce they remained very good friends.

Badriyyah was so full of life. To know her was to love her. She loved bowling & Atlantic City, if you were looking for her those were the 2 places to start. She loved nothing more than her daughters, that is until the grands & great grands came along, they stole her heart. There wasn't anything she wouldn't do for any of us. It only took 1 call no matter the time of day, she was coming. She also loved going to Greg games, no matter the time, place or weather she was there. Everyone knew who she was, she made sure of that. She was his #1 fan. She was known to many as another Mom. She is truly going to be missed.
