Courtaja Antrice Duncan, lovingly known as “Taja,” was born on October 19, 1999 in Nassawadox, Virginia to Courtney Duncan and Patricia Thomas Duncan. She received her wings on March 12, 2019.

Taja was a 2018 graduate of Pocomoke High School in Pocomoke City, Maryland. She was a student at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) matriculating in Criminal Justice.

Taja enjoyed cosmetology and she loved doing hair, especially her own. She also enjoyed baking, playing computer games, and hanging with her friends. Most of all, she enjoyed being a sister, as a result she was a good role model for all of her younger siblings.

She was preceded in death by her maternal great-grandmother, Dorothy Mae Thomas; great-grandfather, Gerald Williams; paternal grandfather, Walter Duncan; maternal grandmother, Lorraine Wright; two sisters, Amani and Ariana Duncan; and great-aunt, Annette Rogers.

Taja leaves to mourn: her mother, Patricia Ann Duncan of Painter, VA; father, Courtney (Latisha) Duncan of Pocomoke City, MD; seven brothers, Kentrell (Maurica) Street of Richmond, VA, Kwame Thomas of Virginia Beach, VA, Courtney Duncan, Jr. of Bloxom, VA, Kamron Thomas of Painter, VA, Colby Duncan of Painter, VA, Aaron Jones and Alonzo Duncan, both of Pocomoke City, MD; one sister, Alyna Jones of Pocomoke City, MD; grandparents, John (Effie) Thomas of Accomac, VA, Barbara Williams of Nassawadox, VA and Clifton (Yvette) Morris of Withams, VA; aunts and uncles, Rhonda Duncan of Millsboro, DE, Tanja (Bobby) Bagwell of Accomac, VA, Vanessa (Orlando) Rowley of Norfolk, VA, Nicole Spady of Cape Charles, VA, Cherita Duncan of NJ, Clifton (Maria) Downing of Bloxom, VA, Marcus Downing of Withams, VA, two who were very special to her, Andre “Uncle Dunk” (Teresa) Duncan of Lewis, DE and Lavonda “Aunt Vonda” (Arthur) Booze of Painter, VA; special friend who was like a sister, Tytiyana Giddens of Painter, VA; godmother, Chakira Handy-Ashby; two nieces, Kennadi and Kayden Street; one nephew, Major Street; and a host of other uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.

My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. May God give you the peace and comfort.

With deepest condolences to the Duncan Family. I don’t know the pain you are experiencing in the loss of your daughter; however, in sharing comforting Scriptures I hope it will bring you peace. At 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 it shows that God is the source you need to go to for comfort. Examining what the Bible teaches about the dead not suffering and the hope of a resurrection will bring comfort too. Ecclesiastes 9:5; Acts 24:15. May you cherish the memories of Courtaja and May these memories also bring you peace and strength today and in the days ahead.

Courtaja was the only light that I had, seeing her smile and her laugh really inspired me daily. She was the best friend that I have ever had, and the first one that I met in college. She was a blessing in my life and still will continue to be. R.I.P Taja I will always have you on my mind and in my heart.
