Ms. Vernita Allen Street was born on October 28, 1938, in Bulloch County, Georgia to the late Lee and Alice Allen. On Monday April 18, 2022, Vernita heard the trumpets of the angels of God, and took flight to be with her mother and father.

At an early age, Vernita joined Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church. She graduated from William James Senior High School in 1956/57. After graduation, she later moved to Miami, Florida, where she resided for more than 60 years. She was a devoted member of Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist Church and served on the Usher Board and was a dedicated mentor/sponsor for the Junior Usher Board.

After working more than 40 years at the United States Postal Service, Vernita retired in 2010. Several years thereafter, her health began to fail.
