Kristy Lashon Vann was born on Monday, May 6th, 1974 in Tahlequah, OK, the daughter of Jimmy Mouse and Ida Vann. She grew up in a home with her four brothers and two sisters, Kevin, Calvin, Darren, Robin, Cindy and Donna. She attended high school at Sequoyah High. In 2000, Kristy and Robert Holt began their lives together and raised a family of five sons and one daughter, Robert, Austyn, Stormy, Mikey, Huricyne and Summer. Kristy was a devoted daughter, partner, mother, grandmother and friend. She was funny and outgoing, with a sense of humor that everyone adored. She was always ready to take the kids to the river or creek, and spend the day soaking up the sun and maybe doing a cookout. When her children played baseball or football, they had no bigger fan than Kristy, Mom was with them every game. She loved to watch her granddaughter, chasing her around the yard, or curling up to watch her favorite show, Big Bang Theory. Kristy’s idea of cooking for her family involved her grill and whatever meat she had. A Christian by faith, Kristy belonged to New Greenleaf Baptist Church. She attended whenever she could and loved her church family. She never let her illness define her, Kristy lived each day to the fullest, and smiled so everyone could see how much she loved life. The Lord called this wonderful lady home from her labors on Wednesday, may 29th, 2019 in Tahlequah, OK, with her family close to her side. She was 45 years old, and can never be replaced.
She is preceded in death by her mother, father, brother Roman J. Vann, and her grandparents, Roy and Nannie Hooper.
Those left to cherish her memory include her companion, Robert Holt of the home, and her beloved children, Robert Holt, Austyn Holt, Stormy Holt, Mikey Holt, Huricyne Holt and Summer Holt all of the home. She leaves her brothers and sisters, Kevin Vann and wife Jolene, Calvin Vann, Darren Henson, Robin Vann and wife Julia, Cindy Barnes all of Tahlequah, Ok and Donna Fallsdown of New Mexico. She lives on in her granddaughter, Alaynna Deegan of Tahlequah, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends and loved ones.
