Klarissa was born August 29, 1993 to Steven and Irene Russell in Amarillo. She grew up in Dalhart. Klarissa valued her friends and family and especially her niece, Jacie. She was recently engaged and enjoyed cooking, music and eating out. Rissa was always the life of the party. She was deeply loved and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Klarissa is survived by her father, Steven Russell of Roanoke; her mother, Irene Russell of Dalhart; a brother, Kolton Russell; two sisters, Kimberly Russell and Chelsey Russell all of Dalhart; two stepsisters, Lakresha Roush and Lukacey Roush of Dalhart; a grandmother, Linda McGraw of Amarillo; her fiance, Bryce Skalsky of Hartley; a niece, Jacie Trefethen of Dalhart and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorials be made to Klarissa’s memorial fund at any Wells Fargo Bank.
