Kayla Renee Stewart of Ocala Florida was called to heaven on 1/4/2022 at the early age of 21. She was a barista at a local Starbucks where she impacted countless lives of our community. She lived her whole life in Marion county after graduating from North Marion High School in 2018. She was a very talented artist and a wonderful friend to many. A true light and beacon of love, hope, and kindness. She was smart, intelligent and outgoing while full of pride in everything she did. Always made a huge positive impact on anyone that was in her life. A lover of animals of all kinds, a gentle creature and true angel. She created absolutely amazing artwork and had so much potential to go far, but unfortunately the amazing beautiful spirit was taken way too soon.
She left behind her mother, Nevada Stewart, her step father, Robert Thorpe, her Father, Vincent Batista, and her brother, Jason Batista.
