To send flowers in memory of Karissa Renee Hargrove (Divelbiss), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Christopher Hargrove became her loving, devoted husband on October 26, 2013. Karissa fully embraced her new son, Halston from the beginning before she and Chris were blessed with her lifetime dream of mother-hood on July 9, 2015 with the birth of Kellan. Her motherly passion was so strong, she chose to devote her time to motherhood, wife and sharing her love for the Lord with as many as she could.
Karissa strived daily to live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge and the will of God, being strengthened according to his glorious might to grow in great endurance and patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father, whom she fully recognizes as having blessed her so richly.
Karissa’s earthly existence radiated the fruit of the spirit; her very nature filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Her life focus was on glorifying God, serving others and continuous spiritual growth with submission, faith and trust in Him.
She lived her faith to the fullest and possessed spiritual gifts of encouraging, lifting and bringing out the best in others with her Spirit-led existence.
Karissa is a beautiful creation with whom God has used to touch countless people!
Devoting the remainder of our lives to continuing her godly mission with a joyful heart will be our privilege to show gratitude to our Lord and His creation…Karissa. Kellan and Halston will always know her infinite love for them and her continual prayers on their behalf. Karissa worked tirelessly to make sure everyone in her path knows that God loves us, values us above all else and yearns to extend limitless mercy and grace to all who sin, if only we choose to believe that Jesus is who he claimed to be. We love you Karissa and look forward to our eternal life together.
