Kati Demaree Obituary

In loving memory of Kati Colleen Demaree, a vibrant soul who brought joy and laughter to everyone she touched. Kati, 42, of Beech Grove, left us on January 20, 2024, leaving behind a wealth of memories.

Born in Indianapolis on January 24, 1981, to David and Joyce Demaree, Kati was truly one of a kind. With a sassy and protective nature, she had the remarkable ability to brighten any room she entered. Her infectious smile was a constant, and her happiness was a beacon to those around her.

A proud '99 graduate of Beech Grove High School, Kati eagerly anticipated her 25th reunion. She had been an active member of the Show Choir and Band, showcasing her drumming talents. As a cheerleader, she carried her spirited enthusiasm into everyday life, becoming the biggest cheerleader for her beloved daughter Santana. And if she couldn’t be there in person, she made well certain that someone would to cheer in her place.

Dolphins held a special place in Kati's heart, and purple was her chosen color of joy. A skilled cook, she delighted in preparing delicious meals, with her baked chicken being a standout favorite. From when she was gifted her first pair of skates at 3, Kati had a love of roller skating, a passion that stayed with her throughout her life.

Music was a constant companion for Kati, and she reveled in the magic of musicals. Dreams of seeing productions like Hamilton on Broadway with her daughter fueled her spirit. Dancing to any tune brought her immense joy, except perhaps for Kpop – a genre she gracefully omitted from her playlist.

Kati's radiant spirit will be profoundly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. She is survived by her adoring daughter Santana Sheppard, whom is now in the loving care of her father Jamillian Sheppard whom Kati always spoke highly about; siblings John Edward "Eddie" Demaree, Janda Rae Jenner, and Kristi Minton; as well as bonus kids Jamilla and Ja'Ron Sheppard. Tasha Ramey, Michelle Cox, and Mandy Lundsford stood as her best friends, offering unwavering support and companionship. Kati also leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members, and countless friends.

In her passing, Kati joins her parents David and Joyce Demaree, sister Kari Demaree, and best friend Celina Marie Farr. Services to celebrate Kati's life will be held on Sunday, January 28, 2024, at 2 PM, with visitation starting at 11 AM until the hour of service. Let us remember Kati for the light she brought into our lives and the indelible mark she leaves on our hearts.
