Chapman Funeral Home
Mrs. Brittany Nicole Crosby
Mrs. Brittany Nicole Crosby, 27, of Canoochee, Ga., passed away Wednesday, April 17, 2019, at her residence following an extended illness.
    Mrs. Crosby was born in Statesboro on January 15, 1992, to Alec Perkins and Priscilla Perkins.
    She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Horace and Dorothy Perkins; maternal grandmother, Jane Lutterloah; and her father-in-law, Craig Crosby.
    As a young girl, Brittany enjoyed spending time with friends, riding horses and four-wheelers.
    In 2009, she was blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Brooklyn Kay Crosby.
    She graduated from Swainsboro High School as an honor graduate in 2010.
    Brittany was first diagnosed with melanoma in 2012. In 2014, she triumphantly conquered her first battle with cancer and married Josh Crosby, the love of her life. While in remission, Brittany went back to school and earned her LPN. She worked at East Georgia Regional for six months before she was once again diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma. Despite doctors' prognosis, Brittany defied all odds and lived beyond the time frame they originally gave her.
    On the 17th of April, Brittany didn’t lose her battle to cancer but won her ticket to heaven.
    She was such a kind, beautiful soul, who touched many lives and was an inspiration to all.
