Aaliyah Evelyn Lara, age 9, of Harker Heights passed from this life on Monday, August 24, 2020 at her home. Aaliyah was born in Anchorage, Alaska on the 27th day of June 2011 to parents David Shuman and Patricia Lara.

Aaliyah had the soul of a free-spirited wildflower, her beauty shined on the inside as well as the outside. If Aaliyah had her way, she would have worn pink and makeup everyday all day to show that outward beauty. She was an outspoken, tell it like it is, 4th grader at Meadows Elementary on post at Ft. Hood. Aaliyah had many friends in school and at her gymnastics classes. She loved gymnastics, so much so that she made her kitchen at home the focal point of her back flips practice. She loved to take pictures, especially selfies and she would talk to just about anybody, about just about anything. Aaliyah also loved music; she loved to sing and dance having fun wherever she went. She also had a passion for animals, all kinds of animals but especially dogs. Aaliyah will be forever missed by her family as well as her teachers and friends. She has been a resident of Harker Heights for two months.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory her mother Patricia Lara of Harker Heights, father David Shuman of Killeen, brother Lazaro Lara-Shuman and sister Brooklyn Shuman both of Harker Heights as well as brother Mesiah Morgan of Killeen, brother Syncere Shuman and sister Kendell Shuman both of Albany, NY.

A funeral service will be held on Sunday, September 13, 2020 at Hewett-Arney Funeral Home Chapel at 10 o’clock a.m.

Hewett-Arney Funeral Home is entrusted with the arrangements.
