DeOndra was born in Dallas, Texas to Foxx’s mother, Louise Annette, and his stepfather George on Sept. 6, 1984.

After graduating high school in Texas in 2002, she relocated to California, moving in with Foxx.

In a 2018 interview with Dateline, Foxx said he “learned how to live” because of his sister.

“Sometimes we get caught up in our world on the extras of everything — ‘Ah, the Mercedes is not the right color!’” he explained. “And then you see this girl over here, ‘I just want to live. I want to dance. I want to love.’ So she brings you back down to what life is.”

Foxx often spoke about his special bond with his younger sister, boasting about her accomplishments like how she participated in the Special Olympics for more than 9 years.

She was born with Down’s syndrome and according to People had reportedly died on October 19.
