McDaniel Jr. (BJ), daughter Hannah Ruth Elizabeth Watkins, her mother Melva Portis, her father Calvin Martin, father-in-law Pastor Allen B. McDaniel Sr. and mother-in-law Azeline McDaniel, sisters Kahnsuala Martin, Shana Bettis (brother- in-law, Jarvis Bettis, referred to by Tiffany as Ugly), Krystal Martin, and Shada Hires (brother-in-law, Michael Hires), brothers Frederick Bettis and Robert Bishop, sister-in-law Alline McDaniel.

Last, but not least, her cat Kwesi.
Tiffany was well loved, cherished, and spoiled. She will be GREATLY missed. She was an exceptional poet, artist, and wise counselor. She carried herself with the grace of a queen, but humble as a lamb. She often referred to us as peasants. She was comical with a great sense of humor; often laughing at things that probably should not have been laughed at. Most of all she was the perfect gift from God.
