Since the days of her early youth, Krista was always very mature. She was a kind, loving, unselfish, and very busy young lady! Krista found great joy in horseback riding, spending time with her parents and siblings, especially treasuring their trips to Okoboji, practicing throwing the discus, taking walks with her mom and sister, shopping, and watching movies. She was an advocate for animal rights and loved her family pets, and the colors of the rainbow!
Krista was just completing her sophomore year at the Kingsley-Pierson High School, where she was an "A" honor student. Krista life was full of school and community activities. She was a football cheerleader, a member of the Dance Attack squad, played volleyball, played 3rd base on the softball team, was on the student council, coached a youth soccer team, and was a summer lifeguard at the Moville and Kingsley city pools.
Even though Krista's physical health was greatly compromised, she earned her way to the state track meet at Drake University last Friday, where she threw her discus and left Des Moines, a medalist winner. Krista had a great respect and admiration for her track coaches and her team mates!
Krista will be cherished forever in the hearts and memories of all who shared in her life. She is survived by her adoring parents, Scott and Laura Phelps; her younger siblings, Colton, Kiana and Nick Phelps, of Kingsley; her grandparents, Robert and Carol Phelps and Francis and Sharry Uhl, all of Kingsley; her aunts, uncles, and cousins, and countless numbers of friends, teachers, coaches, caregivers, and acquaintances.
