September 20, 1980 ~ July 26, 2022

Born in: Indianapolis, Indiana
Resided in: Indianapolis, Indiana

The world became brighter on September 20, 1980 the day that Kristen Lynn Ballard was born. On that day the Angels clapped their hands and the moon danced with the stars.
Kristen left this world on July 26, 2022. Knowing we won’t see that beautiful smile of hers and that contagious laugh puts a hole in our hearts. We know someday we will again be together.
Kristen is survived by her son Coltin Avery Donovan and daughter Cassidy Anise Donovan. Her mother Lori Ballard Scott and Jay Scott. Sister Tera Wilkins (Jimmy). Half Brother Matthew Vibbert and half sister Stephanie Vibbert. Uncles and Aunts Derek Ballard (Sherry) and Joe Warren (Kevin). Kristen has nieces and nephew and many cousins who are more like siblings. Brenda Young who is Grandmother of Coltin and Cass (John Donovan’s mother).
Kristen is preceded in death by John Donovan, her Grandparents Jim and Betty Ballard and her Uncle Kenny Ballard.
Kristen also leaves to cherish her memory her friends.
After services there will be a Celebration of Kristen’s life at the American Legion Post 64 at 4:00 organized by Cassidy Donovan. American Legion is at 425 N Holt Rd. The American Legion are so gracious to provide the food. We hope everyone will come join us to tell stories and share memories of our beautiful Kristen.
Donations may be made to her children Coltin and Cassidy.
Perhaps they are not stars in the sky but rather openings in the floor of Heaven where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.
May you Rest In Peace our Angel girl and Fly High with the Angels until we meet again.
