Nikita Jean Carr was born on January 25, 1960 in Kansas City, Missouri to the union of Louise and Wilbert Carr. She passed away in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 18, 2020.

Nikita was never married. She worked in the field as a PBX operator for over 30 years. From Bally’s, to Excalibur and The Venetian Hotel. She graduated high school and attended some college to achieve her goal of becoming an interior decorator.

Niki loved God and loved to laugh. Her laugher was contagious. She loved her nieces and nephews. She encouraged them to always stand up for themselves. “Always be a leader”. Prince was one of her favorite artist and she could dance like she was the main attraction on the Soul Train main stage.

She enjoyed crafts and had a brilliant mind of thinking outside the box when creating artwork. She was bubbly, caring, showed up when you needed her, a good friend, and her charisma was fantastic.

Most of all she was a loving caring sister, aunt and daughter. Her bright light will forever be missed. We love you Niki.

Preceding Nikita in death are her parents mother Louise Carr, father Wilbert Carr, son Trent and sister Dorothy Harris. She leaves to be cherished and honored in memory sister Ruth Ann (Rudolph) Rhodes, sister Carol Lyberger, brother Brad (Stephanie) Carr, sister Jan Carr, sister Artist Poole, brother Darren Carr, sister Beverly (Robert) Collins, and brother Rodney (Nicole) Palmer. She also leaves 7 nieces, 9 nephews, 34 great nieces and nephews, and 12 great great nieces and nephews, family, and friends who were blessed to know her.

In respect of Covid-19 and social distancing, the family has decided no funeral or memorial service will be held. It would break Niki’s heart if she knew someone attended her service and was infected by the coronavirus for the celebration of her life.

Hello everyone, this is still a tough one for me. I have many childhood memories of Nikki, and all I can hear is her laugh. And oh what a smile she had, that’s a Carr landmark! I reached out to her a few years ago when I was in Vegas and she met up with me, that’s the last time I saw her in person but I also reached out to her after that on one of her birthdays. Family is all we got and some of us barely know one another. That’s got to change. Lets do it for Nikki and share our laughter! Much Love,, Your Cousin, Derrick/Diyah Carr

Where do I begin? Niki will definitely be missed! She and I have known one another since we started at the Venetian 10+ years ago. We’ve had some great experiences, conversations, laughs, tears and sharing our love for crafting. She has always been one of my best cheerleaders when it came to my creativity and my continued success in life. She would always tell me, “You go Gurl!”

Niki, although you’re not here physically I know you’ll continue to cheer 📣 for me from up above. 🤗

Until we meet again tell my dad I said Hi.
Rest In Peace my Niki Gurl! 😘😇

It’s very hard to find the words when someone who is close to you and who you loved for your whole life passes away...

My aunt Niki was a beautiful soul and she taught me many valuable lessons in life that I will carry forward.She taught me how to stand up for myself. My nickname for her was “Clickie”. I’ll miss our conversation we had daily, our laughter and her wonderful sense of humor. Her craziness, She was my crazy aunt. (We all have one 😁). Stubborn at times, strong minded.

I’m laughing out loud because when she was grumpy and the woman at the store would say “have a nice day” she would respond lowly “Don’t tell me what to do” then giggle. She always knew how to bring her spirits up.

Her creativity was out of this world. She even made a baby grand piano out of match stick box. I will miss all the times we ate together: Olive Garden, Triple play, Macaoys eating your favorite chips and salsa, Ice cream from baskin robins, sada and chocolate. The times you sat and ate ice cream cones with us and chocolate. It wasn’t about the food but the times we spend together. 🙂 Thank you for being my Aunt Clickie. You are loved.

I love you Niki. ❤️

I was lucky to meet Nikki back when she worked at Excalibur with my mom. The two of them were roommates for a while as well many years ago. I will miss you Miss Nikki, you had the most awesome contagious laugh and always had a big smile on your face. We will miss you. Prayers and condolences to the entire family. With love and respect,

Denise
