Charmaine was a sweet, sweet child. When we arrived in United States, Charmaine attended Seabrook Elementary and later Kenmore Elementary. She enjoyed school and never needed help with her homework. She went on to attend Benjamin Tasker Middle School where she served as a Student Safety Patrol team member. Charmaine graduated from Bowie High School with High Honors. She was proud to be a cheerleader for the Bowie High Bulldogs. A lover of music of all types, Charmaine mastered both the guitar and piano. Charmaine knew exactly what she wanted to do after graduation and eagerly enrolled in Anne Arundel Community College to pursue a degree in Pharmaceuticals Science. She excelled in her studies and was on the path to a successful career. Charmaine was an extremely organized young lady, mentally and physically; she ate the right food, exercised, and she loved to dress in the latest fashions and had a flair for fine shoes and purses. She loved the Lord, her mother, her sister, and family near and far, especially her grandmother who she affectionally called “Grandma.” As those who mourn and search for peace, rejoice in the knowledge of God’s Grace and know that Charmaine, is now with Grandma, who is once again holding her, blessing her, and smiling contently. Charmaine leaves to cherish her memory, her Mother, Clementine Metchinda and her sister Melvis Baker both of Bowie, Maryland; her Father, Jacques Pesienji of Baltimore, Maryland; a host of loving Uncles, Aunties, Nieces, Nephews and Cousins in Paris, Cameroon, Germany, Ireland, United States, as well as the Ivory Coast.
