Kristen Nikole Lara

Kristen Nikole Lara, 32, received her heavenly wings unexpectedly on April 16, 2022 at her home in Sylvester, Texas. She was born in Lamesa, Texas on January 6, 1990 to George Lara, Jr. and Kari Dickenson Sharpe.

To know Kristen was to love her. She was a natural born athlete and excelled in all that she did. Kristen was a friend to all and not shy. She was funny and had a smile that would light up a room. Kristen did whatever she wanted to do and did it to perfection. She worked as a Real Estate Agent at Big Country Realty Group at Keller Williams Realty.

Kristen met her soulmate, Brittany Lakey, about 8 years ago and they have been together since.

Those left to cherish their memories with Kristen include her mother, Kari Sharpe and her partner, John Newman of Gladewater, TX; her father George Lara, Jr. and his wife, Ami of Midland, TX; her partner Brittany Lakey and her son, Cohen Lakey of Sylvester, TX; her brothers, Wesley Lara of Gilmer, TX, Cain Lara and Luke Lara of Midland, TX; her sisters, Georgee Lara and McKinzee Lara of Midland, TX; her grandparents, Eddie and Glenda Dickenson of Longview, TX and Welo George Lara, Sr. of Midland, TX; her aunt and uncle, Alex and Maricela Nevarez of Lewisville, TX, her nieces, Zyla Jackson and Khloe Lara and nephew, Kolson Lara; as well as many other cousins and extended family members and many others, who were lucky to call Kristen their friend.

She is preceded in death by her grandmother, Wela Maria Lara, and her uncle, Jaime Lara.
