Lakisha Mechelle Caruthers was born July 8, 1980 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee to Michael and Sharon Caruthers. She transitioned from this earthly life to eternal life on June 25, 2018 at Hamilton Medical Center in Dalton, Georgia.

LaKisha was educated in the Rutherford County School system and furthered her education at Tennessee College of Applied Technology where she earned her degree as a Licensed Practical Nurse. She was a member of the Auburn Hills Church of Christ in Woodbury, Tennessee.

She loved traveling, especially cursing. LaKisha also had a special love for children, pets, shopping and spending Sundays at church with her auntie Cynthia. She always looked forward to her dad's days off so they could spend quality time together.

LaKisha was preceded in death by her mother, Sharon Caruthers; grandfathers, Mose Caruthers and William Burton Anderson Jr.; and uncle, William Burton Anderson III.

LaKisha leaves to cherish her memories a loving and devoted father, Michael Caruthers; loving and devoted grandparents, Addie B. Caruthers and Henry (Wordna) McKnight; aunts, Cynthia (Don) Smith, Maegan Anderson, Shondell Frazier, Sonja Dowell and Conteria Dowell; devoted boyfriend, Tony Marable; and a host of very close aunts, uncles, cousins, other family members and friends.
