Queen Elizabeth Chapman Nnaji was born to the union of the late James Matthew Chapman and Edith Elizabeth Chapman on June 4, 1955 in Anderson, South Carolina.
Queen was also known as “Queenie” to most everyone and “Beanie” to very few. She attended D.W. Daniel High School. In 2006, she received an Associate Degree in Business with a Major in Management from Tri-County Technical College.

She received an honorable discharge from the United States Army Reserve. Queen retired from AFCO, a Bosch fuel-pump plant.
Queen committed her life to Christ and became a member of Greater Faith Baptist Church in Clemson, South Carolina. She was a woman who loved her family deeply and truly cared for those closest to her. Queen would light up the room with her beautiful smile.
