October 8, 2000-December 5, 2020
On Saturday, December 5, 2020, Kyra Marie Winslow of Albertville, MN, loving daughter, sister, and friend, was called back to GOD at the age of 20. Kyra was born on October 8, 2000 in Minneapolis, MN to Desiree and Russell Winslow. After graduating from St. Michael-Albertville High School in 2019, Kyra attended the University of St. Thomas, where she was a sophomore. Kyra was not only a great listener, but also gave great advice to her family and friends. Kyra had the warmest, kindest heart. She will be so deeply missed by all!
Along with her contagious laugh, Kyra was known for her bright smile that lit up the room. Kyra was an avid dog lover, music enthusiast, and had a strong love for all things 70’s. Kyra gained her heavenly wings with her best friend, Molly, and is preceded in death by Great Grandma Bessie, and both Grandfathers, Clifford Johnson and Russell Winslow. Kyra is survived by her Father, Russell, Mother, Desiree, two Siblings, Darian and Tanner, Grandmothers, Ruth Muller and Sarah Johnson, Grandfather Leo Muller and aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends.
A Visitation will held on Sunday, December 13, 2020 between 2-8 pm at The Peterson Chapel (300 Main Street, St. Michael, MN 55376, (763) 497-5362). A Memorial Service and Passage to GOD will be held on Monday, December 14, 2020 at 1:00pm at St. Michael Catholic Church (11300 Frankfort Pkwy NE, St. Michael, MN 55376 (763) 497-2745).
I am so sorry to hear of Kyra’s passing. She was a student of mine at St. Thomas last year and always brought a positive outlook to class that brightened my days and those of her classmates, as well. I will remember her fondly, and my thoughts and prayers are with all who mourn and miss her.
We are so deeply sorry for your loss. My daughter, Carly LaPlant, played soccer with Kyra one summer and we thought highly of her. God bless and comfort you all during this extremely difficult time.
When I think of Kyra, I will always picture her with that happy, room brightening smile! Sending you all our love and prayers!
I am so very sorry your loss. May God be with you all. Prayer and love to you all.
May God Bless you.
With love and prayers.
We are so sorry for your loss. Prayers to the entire family during this difficult time. God Bless.
To my neice Deserrie and Winslow family, Sister Sara;
My heart felt condolence on the loss of your beautiful daughter Kyra. The loss of a child is defastation.
But God has his reasons; Now Mom has another Angel by her side to watch over all of us.
love Aunt Lena, Uncle Jimmy and family
Dearest Russ and Desiree, I’m so so heartfelt sorry for your loss of your BEAUTIFUL baby girl. May God and the Angels hold you tight always and forever. My heart aches for you both and your families.
Sincerely and Love Lorene
Dear Russell and Desiree,
Words cannot express the sorrow I have for losing your dear Kyra. I never met her, but I am a seminarian on the south campus of Saint Thomas at Saint Paul Seminary. I am studying to be a priest and when I saw the email from Saint Thomas ten minutes before the prayer service December 10, I ran over and joined you all in prayer at the Aquinas chapel. Though I never met her, I know we are connected through the Body of Christ. Know of my prayers for her, for you and your family, and all who mourn her loss. You are not alone. He is with you always, bearing your pain with you, the suffering Christ. Love and prayers.
