Obituary: Kayla Shannon Nichelle Lee

Kayla Shannon Nichelle Lee, of Cushman, was born May 10, 1993, in Newport, AR, to Ivan Heath Lee and Jamie Lee (Clawson) Tucker. Kayla’s journey ended on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, at the age of 29 years, 4 months, and 3 days. Kayla graduated from Batesville High School in the class of 2011. Kayla was known to many by her nickname, “Dixie”. Staying true to her southern heritage, she was a cowgirl at heart. She absolutely loved rodeos, especially bull riding and anything to do with horses. She enjoyed arts and crafts, hunting, fishing, and camping. After high school, Kayla joined the circus. She was so very proud of her life as a “carnie”. Kayla was the type of person that would come to the rescue of anyone in need. She was kind, generous, and fearless. Her heart was bigger than hers. She will forever be loved and deeply missed by everyone who was blessed to know her.
