KR Tiger Reed Armes, 57, of Angola, Indiana, passed away suddenly at her home.
She was born on April 23, 1964, in Joliet, Illinois to Raymond George and Beverly (Brading) Reed. She graduated from Prairie Heights High School in 1982.
KR married Max Armes on September 12, 1992.
She and her husband attended Fairview Missionary Church in Angola, Indiana.
KR was very passionate about her pet birds, including David’s feathered brother Romeo. She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.
Surviving is her loving husband, Max Armes of Angola, Indiana; children, David Armes of Houston, Texas, Aaron Kunce of Angola, Indiana, Joanetta D. Smith of Houston, Texas, Danielle Mountfield of Angola, Indiana, and Chloe Byrne Williams of Dublin, Ireland; three brothers, Brad Reed of Muncie, Indiana, Kevin (Tawnie) Reed of Auburn, Indiana, Sean (Teresa) Reed of Lansing, Michigan and sister, Kathy (Mike) Wolcott of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Also surviving are her four grandchildren, Damean Platt, Alexis Platt, Aidan Kunce, Ezra Mountfield.
She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Mark Patrick Reed.
A Celebration of Life will be held in spring/summer 2022 at a date to be decided.
PS - why do these always have to be so somber? KR also loved llamas, especially movies about killer llamas like Llamageddon. She had a great sense of humor, and loved to laugh and make others laugh. Anyone who knew her has fond memories of the antics she would concoct to play a joke on a neighbor or the lengths she would go to make a friend feel joy in their lives. Her favorite word was “dammit!”, so much so that her son once went to the school and proudly exclaimed “My name is ‘David Dammit!’”. KR, Mom, Grandma, will be sorely missed by many people around our area and even across the world whose lives she touched. I know I will miss all the time we spent joking, watching movies, and playing pranks on the neighbors. I love you Mom.
KR was the most amazing person I have ever known - a free soul who saw the good in everyone. That is unless you crossed her path (I’m talking wood chipper). She never met a person who she did not like and those whom she felt a connection with, it was instant and intense. Every minute you were with KR you never knew if it was going to be zero or 120 miles per hour. She lived for her friends and family and was always ready to help someone out. She was crazy and wild and loving and heart felt. She loved music, to see her sing or lip sync “Heaven Can Wait” by Meat Loaf was epic. So she always used to tell me, “You know what I like best about your story? It has an ending”. So I’ll wrap this up. Watch out Heaven, because KR’s story is just starting in life, eternal. You now have the wings you always wanted, Sweetheart. Fly like an eagle! I Love You More, Always and Forever!
