Peachlyn Bradley
Birth: May 6, 1991
Oklahoma City
Oklahoma County
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Apr. 19, 1995
Oklahoma City
Oklahoma County
Oklahoma, USA

Victim of the Oklahoma City bombing. She was only 3 years old, but she acted like she was 23, her aunt Donnia Banks said. Peachlyn Bradley "touched everyone she met," Banks said. Bradley's great-grandmother, Mary Hill, said the girl "was the laugh of everything." Peachlyn died in the bombing along with her grandmother, Cheryl Bradley Hammons, and her 3-month-old brother, Gabreon Bruce. The family, including Peachlyn's mother, Dana Bradley, 20, had gone to get a Social Security card for Gabreon. Dana is now recovering after her leg was amputated. Dana's sister, Felicia Bradley, 23, was with them, too, and also is recovering from injuries.

Published in the Oklahoma Today magazine, Winter 1996 issue:
Peachlyn Bradley, 3 of OKC, daughter of Daina Bradley and great-granddaughter of Mary Hill, both of OKC; accompanied her mother, her aunt Falesha Bradley, her grandmother Cheryl Hammons, and brother Gareon Bruce to get a Social Security card for Gabreon.

Three year old Peachlyn was a sparkler and a yakker. "Oh Lord, she was a light," said Victoria Slaughter, Peachlyn's great-aunt. "She was such a happy kid. She'd just shine." She brought people together. "She was like a bridge between everyone, and she never shut up," said great grandmother Mary Hill, with a laugh. "We called her motor mouth."

When the preschooler entered a room, she always announced, "I'm here," followed by, "Where's my kids?" (Everyone - from her 23 year old cousin on down - was Peachlyn's kid." "She was just a little busybody," said Mary. "She was just a sweet thing." Unable to pronounce "Big Mama," Mary's nickname, Peachlyn dubbed her great-grandmother "Mick Mama." A typical Peachlyn request: "Mick Mana, do you have any shereal (cereal)?" Not surprisingly, her favorite thing when she wasn't gabbing, says Ms. Hill, was Cherrios.
