Kanita primarily lived in the Parkchester apartments growing up, where she would often frequent even after moving. She loved this neighborhood so much that she often thought of her friends there as family.\n\nKanita was a self proclaimed rockstar and would quote the song 'Rockstar' by Nickleback all the time, specifically “ I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame I'll even cut my hair and change my name”. She shared the love of this song with her children who now know every word. \n\nKanita was a people person, never one to sit in the same place for too long. She loved to go different places, try new things, and experience phenomenon that most won't think to strive for. She wanted to meet new people and essentially become the life of the party, which she was successful at becoming many times over.\n\nHer children and sole grandchild were the most important things in her life and she struggled to give them the life they deserved. With the help of her mother Deborah and many other family members she was able to see her children blossom and reach new heights. Despite her struggles her children were the highlight of her life in which she often bragged about. \nKanita is survived by her eldest daughter Lawrencia "Wren" Odoms, sons Mark Odoms, Lamar Odoms, Lamont Odoms, Markese Odoms, and youngest daughter Angelique "Little" Langlet. as well as her, grandson Mason Odoms.
