Krista Lee Haws – made a difference in all the lives she touched. On January 17th Krista was unexpectedly called home. Her contagious smile and fun sense of humor is a gift to all of us. Krista loves her family. Whether listening with an empathetic heart or just “showing up”, she was always pulling for you. She was a friend to particularly those that needed a friend. As the Mother of five boys and one girl, now with seven grandchildren, she will continue to be an inspiration to those still continuing on their journey here. Krista’s greatest talents are those as Mother and Homemaker – where she taught principles of integrity and self-worth to her family. A talented pianist, decorator, artist, actress, editor, wordsmith – thesaurus, seamstress, graphic artist, travel agent, talent scout, cheerleader, #1 fan….. the list could go on and on – Krista leaves her mark on all of us. While not here for the time we had all hoped, Krista took us along with her on her Journey to places and experiences that take most of us many life-times. The memories are incredible; catching alligators on Daufuskie Island; parasailing in Mexico; creating a mountain home for our Kamas rendezvous; the missionary visits to Hungary, Ecuador, Argentina and Sao Paulo; cheering on her family as they now continue on their journey. Krista’s whole life has been a divine design of inter-twinings of relationships from a prior existence to now a resumption with those who now embrace Krista and hold her in their arms - excited to have her back as we are sad to have her missing in ours. Her son Dustin was sure to be the first to greet her - those still behind to cherish her memory are: her best friend and soul mate Rich Haws; her children: David + Carter Haws, Michael & Tawni + Maverick Haws, Emily (her favorite daughter) & Scott + Joshua, Spencer and Cooper Harwood; Christopher & Jenny + Abby & Harper Haws; and Taylor & Maddy Haws; her mother Dorothy Smart, and her siblings John, Douglas, Steve and Becky.
