Mrs. Victoria Jalissa Bradsher Daniel, age 26, of 849 Old Allensville Road, Roxboro, NC 27574, departed this life on Saturday, April 14, 2018 in Elizabeth City, NC following a pedestrian-car accident. She was a native of Guilford County and a member of Cedar Grove Baptist Church in Roxboro where she was baptized at the age of ten, was a member of the Youth Missionaries, Youth Choir, the Sons & Daughters of Ruth and just recently began helping her mother and grandmother clean the church for services.
