Diamond “Kyree” Sanders was born in Cincinnati, OH on April 10, 1997 to Stephen Sanders, Jr. and Cathleen Crawford. Diamond Sanders departed this earth on March 3, 2021 in Cincinnati, OH. Diamond was preceded in death by her grandparents, Joyce Benford and Arthur Crawford.
Diamond leaves to cherish her memory: her siblings, Andrell Nailer, Emanuel Sanders, Demetri Thomas, Kameron Jackson, Iyanna Sanders and Stephen Sanders III; her nephews, Oliver Nailer, Owen Nailer and Andrell Nailer, Jr.; her grandmother who she adored, Dianne Harris; grandfather, Stephen Sanders, Sr.; aunt, Terron Wilson (Shaun); and a host of great-aunts, great-uncles, cousins and friends.
Diamond was a ball of energy as a child and even up to her time of death. She valued her family and enjoyed spending time with them. As a child, she would say “I love my WHOLE family!” At the last family Thanksgiving dinner, Diamond let her family know she was thankful that they accepted her for who she was as a transgender. In her younger years, Diamond spent many weekends with her Aunt Terron and Grandmother Dianne, baking cookies and making one of her favorite meals, “pigs in a blanket”. They also took Diamond and her siblings on trips to the Bahamas, Florida (Walt Disney World), Detroit and Gatlinburg to show her the world is much bigger than just Cincinnati. As an adult, Diamond was a traveler, known to be in New York City one week and New Orleans the following week. Diamond was really into fashion. She always coordinated her attire from head to toe, including matching hair and nails. She was known to say, “I have to be cute, honey!” A few weeks before her death she was in her grandmother’s closet putting on her fur coat, clothes and jewelry. Diamond’s unique style, charm and personality will be greatly missed.
