Scarlett Annabelle Rose Salas was born on Friday, October 18th, 2002 in Taney County, Mo. She grew up in the little town of Forsyth, and loved her life there. On October 1st, 2020 she was chosen by the angels and her Father in Heaven to leave this Earth and return to her original, spiritual and perfect self in the eternal realm where death does not exist. Scarlett was 17 years old, just 18 days shy of her 18th birthday. Her golden birthday as she called it due to turning 18 on the 18th.
She was a senior at Forsyth High School. She had participated in nursing programs and was very passionate about her future in the medical field.
Scarlett was charming, sassy, and downright feisty. Her soul was undeniably golden as she radiated with love, laughter, and a pure joy for life. She was truly a free-spirited young lady and a social butterfly.
Scarlett's dearest and closest friends were more than friends. They were also her sisters and mothers in spirit. Her soul family. She was loved, adored, shared, protected, and absolutely cherished by many who claimed her as their own.
She loved music, photography, long walks, and being in mother nature. Her favorite color was purple. She was an amazing artist who left her works behind to be admired by everyone.
Scarlett was in love with the love of her lifetime Timothy Price. He was always her crush, her first and her last true love. They had big plans for their future together including talks of marriage and first apartments. She was so excited for their journey together.
She was very protective of her little brother who she loved more than words can express. She even stated with tears in her eyes "I love him more than anyone else on Earth."
Scarlett was also adored by her big sister who she spent weeks at a time with in the summer. They would take her most loved baby nephew out on fun adventures. They explored creeks, parks and indoor playgrounds. She so loved that little boy and took pride in being the best aunt ever.
She was very adventurous and loved traveling. She had the pleasure of going to beaches in faraway places and swam even on the coldest of days. Some of the places she visited include Saint Thomas, Antigua, Barbados, Saint Lucia and Puerto Rico. She traveled to Florida and Texas and had plans on visiting many more places.
Scarlett's bright green eyes, sweet smile, and intoxicating laughter will forever remain bound within each of us who are blessed to have known and loved her.
Almost everyone who knew her called her Baby Girl. That was her nick name and she surely would let you know that too!
As we cherish our memories and celebrate her life, we should turn to 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 "For our life and monetary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So, we fix our eyes not on what is seen but what is unseen. Since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
Scarlett is survived by her mother Sara N. Salas, her brother Maverick J.A. Salas age 16, her sister Elizabeth S.P. Meredith age 25, grandmother Terry M. Salas, her nephew Darren Eric Williams III (Tre) age 3, 5 aunts, 1 uncle and 22 first cousins.
We are so grateful, so blessed to have had almost 18 years with this darling little fire light. She was truly our Baby Girl!
She was her mother’s beautiful red rose as that is the meaning of her name.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Kissee-Schofield-Eakins Funeral Home, Forsyth, MO.
