Lakisha Freeman-Lyles

February 11, 1975 — September 14, 2023

Lakisha Freeman-Lyles, affectionately known as Kisha, was a beacon of light and love, whose life was a testament to the power of faith, optimism, and resilience. Born in St. Louis, MO, she lived a life of purpose and passion, leaving an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of knowing her. Kisha's journey on this earth ended in Spartanburg, SC, but her spirit and legacy will continue to inspire and uplift for generations to come.

Kisha was the beloved daughter of Michael Freeman and Elizabeth Brantley, and the cherished sister of Michael "Free Freeman" and Lovesa Smith. She was a devoted mother to her two daughters, Sharah and Shyah Lyles, who were the center of her universe. Kisha was also a beloved aunt to her four nieces and one nephew, each of whom held a special place in her heart.

Kisha's educational journey included some college, but her real education came from the school of life. She was a lifelong learner, always seeking to grow and evolve. Kisha's professional journey was equally impressive. She was a successful CCIM commercial real estate agent, an entrepreneur, and a philanthropist. Kisha's entrepreneurial spirit was matched only by her philanthropic heart. She was the founder of the Fearless Foundation, a foundation created to support breast cancer patients. Kisha's work with the Fearless Foundation was a testament to her unwavering commitment to making a difference in the lives of others.

Kisha's interests were as diverse as they were fulfilling. She had a passion for fitness, networking, gardening, cooking, and baking. She loved to laugh and cherished every moment spent with her family. Kisha's zest for life was infectious, and she had a unique ability to make everyone around her feel special and loved.

Kisha was a woman of many words, but if one had to choose just three to describe her, they would be loving, faith-filled, and optimistic. She loved deeply and unconditionally, her faith was unwavering, and her optimism was contagious. Kisha's life was a testament to the power of love, faith, and optimism. She was a woman who lived her life with purpose, passion, and positivity.

In the words of a motivational speaker, Kisha's life was a masterclass in resilience, faith, and love. She faced every challenge with grace and courage, and she inspired everyone around her to do the same. Kisha's legacy is not just in the successful career she built or the foundation she started, but in the lives she touched the hearts she warmed, and the smiles she inspired.

As we remember Kisha, let us not dwell on her departure, but celebrate her life, her spirit, and her legacy. Let us remember her laughter, her love, and her light. Let us remember Kisha Freeman-Lyles, a woman who lived fearlessly, loved deeply, and left this world a better place.
