Kyrstan LouAnn “Lola” Lee passed on to soar with the angels on May 27, 2022, at the age of 23 in Long Beach, MS. Her soul was embraced and welcomed through a joyous reunion with her predeceased brother, Chad Jason Lee, Jr.
Kyrstan was born on October 26, 1998, in Gulfport, MS. She attended Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, where she obtained her Associate’s degree. Kyrstan had a passion for color guard throughout high school and college that was magnificently expressed through her graceful movements and her ability to captivate any audience with her glowing aura.
To know her was to love and adore her. Kyrstan was confident, funny, audacious, compassionate, and authentic. She was hardworking and met any challenge thrown at her with determination and grit. Kyrstan’s bright, beautiful smile could lighten the darkest of rooms and her hearty, joyous laughter brought warmth to every ear it touched. Her excitement and enthusiasm for a wondrous life were inspirational, and she was always ready for the next big adventure. Her ability to consistently make those she cared for feel seen, heard, and loved was a marvelous gift and indescribable.
Kyrstan’s lively spirit remains through her father, Chad Jason Lee, Sr.; step-mother, Jamie Lee; mother, Devan Eldridge; siblings, Jacob Graves (Brianna), Sarah McGowan, and Alexus Lee; grandparents, Karen and Richard Bachtel and Sharon and Robert Barrett; beloved pet, Izzy Belle Lee; and the countless lives that she touched with her charming presence.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Chad Jason Lee, Jr.; and uncles, Glen Michael Lott, Jr., Brian Edward Bachtel, and Mike Millfelt.
Kyrstan will always be remembered through each beautiful thing that this life has to offer. She will be seen in every orange sunrise, pink sunset, twinkling star, and the flight of every delicate butterfly. Kyrstan will be felt through every soft gust of wind and by the warm rays of the sun. She will be heard through the songs of chirping birds and the sound of crashing waves, all to remind us that we are never alone.
To celebrate and honor Kyrstan’s legacy, never miss an opportunity to let the ones you care about feel loved, laugh loudly and often, love boldly and passionately, and bravely welcome every new adventure presented to you.
