She was born Karissa Ann Dobesh on January 4, 1990 in Richmond, Texas to Judy Ann (Matlock) and Darwin Dobesh.
She is survived by her loving husband of 9 years, Douglas Reid, and their two beautiful daughters, Kinsleigh and Kathleen (Kate) Reid. She was a very proud, loving mother and wife. She is also survived by her parents Darwin and Judy Dobesh, her brothers Jonathon Dobesh, Blake Dobesh and wife Jackie. She loved and was blessed to have her in-laws Richard (Ricky) and Jonellen Reid, sister-in-law Joy Davis and husband Daniel, and brother-in-law Michael Reid. Karissa also leaves behind her nieces AliRae, Lainey, and Kendall Dobesh, and her nieces and nephews Reid, Annelise, Simon, Vivian, and Crosby Davis. Karissa is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. She will be dearly missed by her long-time best friend/sister, Jo Anna Gonzales Gonsoulin.
Karissa was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents Elizabeth Bremser LaVois and James Matlock and her paternal grandparents Willie Mae Dobesh and Darwin Dobesh Sr., who met her at the gates of heaven with open arms.
Karissa loved spending time with her family, being a teacher to her girls, doing crafts and reading lots of books. She was active in her church, FBC Sweeny and was an inspiration to all. She will be sorely missed, and we are all thankful for the time we had with her.
Pallbearers for Karissa will be Jonathon Dobesh, Blake Dobesh, Jarrett Wilkerson, Joel Gonzales, Timothy Crober, and Daniel Davis.
