Larrisa Renee (Walker) Saladin


Larrisa Renee (Walker) Saladin, 31, was born on Dec. 24, 1992, in Springfield, and passed away on Feb. 3, 2024, in Houston. She was a beloved daughter, sister and mother. Her untimely departure leaves an immense void in the lives of all who knew and loved her. Larrisa graduated with the Hartville High School Class of 2012. She was united in marriage to David Lynn Saladin on July 6, 2013, at Camp Calvary. Two sons were born to this union, Daniel James and Caleb Ira Saladin. Family meant the world to Larrisa, and she treasured every moment spent with them. One of her greatest joys in life was watching her boys play and seeing their happiness radiate from within. Her love for her family extended beyond the walls of their home as she cherished the time they spent together on family vacation trips. She particularly enjoyed going to the creek where they would swim, laugh, and make everlasting memories. Larrisa derived immense strength from her faith in God. She held a deep love for the Lord and enjoyed attending church services with her parents. During these gatherings, Larrisa’s voice could often be heard singing hymns and specials. In addition to her dedication to family and faith, she had a passion for life’s simple pleasures. She found pure joy in sipping on a cold Dr. Pepper while engaging in heartfelt conversations with loved ones. Larrisa also enjoyed wearing cowboy boots that showcased her unique style and personality. She will forever be remembered for her infectious laughter, smile, and love.
