Riki Dee Starnes  

October 20, 1957-December 24, 2023

 

Riki Dee Starnes, 66, of La Porte, Indiana, passed away Sunday December 24, 2023 at Northwest Health-La Porte.

 

She was born October 20, 1957 in La Porte, Indiana, the daughter of Don A. Starnes and Shirley (Shelton) Starnes., both who preceded her in death

 

Riki graduated from New Prairie High School in 1976 and went on to attend Michigan City Beauty College and Commonwealth Business College. She worked at K-mart in Michigan City for many years, but retired from Walmart in La Porte.  Riki was a 10 year 4-H member and a talented water color artist.  She loved doing cross stitch and Suduko and was a huge horror movie fan.  Riki was a collector of all things, including numerous friends, a houseful of plants and artificial fingernails.  She would take in any stray, whether 2 legged or 4 legged, and her favorite dog was Deli.  Riki was a fun loving, generous person who loved game night with her family and was super proud of her children. She will be missed by them all.

 

She is survived by her son, Ky (Kyla) Starnes of Portage, IN; sister, Kelly Pina of La Porte, IN; nephews Sam Musgrave, Lucas Musgrave, and Gabe Hernandez; niece Shelly Westphal and she was a great aunt to Alaina and Eleanor; and special family friend to Chris Ault and his children and most importantly, her "Little Sunshine", her grandchild, Kayden.

 

Arrangements are being entrusted to Haverstock Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 602 Maple Ave., La Porte, IN where the family will receive friends on December 30 from 2:00-4:00 p.m.  Cremation will take place.
