Ariel Renea Starnes, 30, of Rochester, NY died tragically on December 5, 2023.
I could write a standard obituary but I know, and I think we all know my sister wouldn't want that.
Ariel "merm" had an electrifying personality. She was bright, kind, talented, and honestly she was just pure energy. I remember when Ariel first got into hula hooping, and watching her perform... it was as if nothing in this world could touch her. She was so excited to start making them and selling them and teaching other people how to hula hoop. The glimmer in her eye whenever she learned a new trick, the smile that seemed to brighten up even the darkest of corners, the laugh, oh god, the laugh you couldn't help yourself from laughing with her. Ariel Renea, you'll forever be remembered as the infectious light of love that you are.
Friends and family are invited to call on Friday, December 15, 2023 from 5-7pm at James R. Gray Funeral Home, 1530 Buffalo Rd. Rochester, NY 14624. Interment will be private.
