Danauja Littlejohn Obituary

On December 31st, 2023, Danauja Danielle-Darshell Littlejohn, lovingly known as "Butt-Butt," was unexpectedly called home by God in Knoxville, TN.

Danauja was born on April 5th, 2012, at St. Mary’s Hospital, surrounded by three generations of loved ones from each side of her family. As an infant toddler, she attended Bentiontfiful Blessing daycare with Ms. Smith. Later, she went to Fairgraden for pre-k and shades. Danauja attended Sarah Moore Green Elementary, where Mrs. Manley and Mrs.

Moss were her teachers. She attended and participated in after-care at the on-site YMCA with Ms. Cheyenne and Ms. Chantelle. This summer, Danauja went to the EV Davison Center with Ms. Chantelle and Ms. Candice, where she had an action-packed summer until it ended, and she became a middle schooler. Currently, she is a 6th grader at Holston Middle School. Danauja attended New Beverly Baptist Church, where she was saved, and no matter what, she made it to her Wednesday services and loved her teachers, Mr. Zach and Ms. April.

Danauja was a unique individual who possessed talent in every area. Her favorite passions were art and music. She could draw anything with her heart and freestyle on any beat. She could design anything she put her mind to. Danauja was also very empathetic and sweet and always looked out for all her siblings.
