AISHA(1977 - 2012)

AISHA M. AINSWORTH July 16, 1977 - November 20, 2012 There are so many words that can describe Aisha as a person, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a grand-daughter and most importantly as a mother. From the time she could talk she was an outgoing, friendly, energetic, optimistic, caring, patient and loving person who put others needs before her own. As she got older her personality just captivated an overwhelming amount of friends. She always had an ear available for anyone needing to vent and her friends knew that she would keep it confidential. Growing up she took part in so many different organizations and groups. In school she was a cheerleader, played softball, loved dancing, and having a great time with those close to her. When she decided to get involved in something she would put her heart into it. She was active in her church and her favor department was the nursery. Starting as a young teenager she was involved in Relay for Life. She started a cheer squad for young girls and due of her dedication it was very successful. Aisha's life was filled with joy, love, happiness, and family, but on January 11, 2010 when her son "Aiden" came into her life she was even more involved than ever. Even though Aiden wasn't in school she started dedicating her time at a local elementary school continuously. She wore the smile of a lifetime when talking about her son. Aiden was her pride and joy, she would take him everywhere. She was such a giving, caring, strong women of God who would give her last penny to anyone in need and would never ask for anything for herself. She brightened many people's lives when they were down and out with just her smile or some encouraging words and some silly words to make you laugh, but most of all with just her presence knowing she was there and she cared. She always said "I don't pretend to be someone I'm not because I'm too good at being ME. I might not be proud of some of the things I've done in the past but I'm proud of who I am today! You've got to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad. Love what you've got and remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget. Learn from mistakes, never regret...WE may not have it all together but together WE have it all (AIDEN, love, joy, family, friends and most of all GOD)...I love you." Visitation will be held from 7-9 a.m and services will be held at 9 a.m on December 1st, at Valley Faith Fellowship; interment at North Kern District Cemetery, Delano.
