Obituary for Karissa Ann Morin

Karissa Morin, 28, passed away February 29, 2020, in Kansas City, MO. She was born November 17, 1991 in Colorado Springs, CO. A memorial service will held 12:00 PM Saturday March 7, 2020 at Souder Family Funeral Home with a visitation from 11-12 PM prior to the service.

Karissa graduated from Platte County High School. She had Kleefsta syndrome (Ks) a rare genetic disorder that affected her entire life. But she did not allow that to disrupt her life which she truly enjoyed. She participated in Special Needs Cheerleading and performed at Nationals. Karissa also participated in Special Olympic swimming, softball, and bowling. In the last 3 years, she was living in an Individualized supported living environment, where she was learning independent living skills at Preferred Family Healthcare and most recently at Missouri Quality Care.

Karissa enjoyed her frequent visits with Mom and Dad (Debbie and Dave). She loved going to the park, music venues, watching TV, vacations in CT, MO, and Las Vegas.
She loved dining out, and going out for a coffee or tea with friends and family.
Karissa had a passion for Cardinals, and had a large collection of cardinal knick knacks at home.
She loved babies, and had many dolls that she called "her babies". Family and Friends were a very important part of her life.

Karissa was survived by her parents, David and Debbie Morin of Kansas City MO; her Maternal Grandmother, Joan Grubb of Kansas City MO; her Paternal Grandfather Gilbert Morin of Glastonbury CT; her Aunts and Uncles, Kevin McKinney of Liberty MO, David and Janet (Morin) Kline of CT, Steve and Lori (Rote) Morin of CT; Cousins, Stephanie McKinney of FL, and Kyle and Zach Morin of CT.

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother Terry Morin of CT, and her maternal grandfather Norwood Grubb of Kansas City.
