Lauren VanDeventer, 20, of Westfield, passed away Thursday evening, March, 16, 2017.

She was born on April 2, 1996 to Keith and Lisa (Witt) VanDeventer in Indianapolis. Her father precedes her in death.

She attended Westfield High School through her senior year and graduated from Options Charter High School in Carmel.

She had a strong love for animals. She became a vegetarian at the age of 6 and had many pets throughout her childhood. She could light up any room she walked in. She was fun-loving and had a contagious smile and laugh. She could also be very head-strong at times. She loved the band, Panic! At the Disco, and would have said that she was their biggest fan.

Survivors include her mother; her sister, Karla (Alex) Gilbert; brother, Dorian VanDeventer and his fiancée, Christina Fowler; grandparents, Ron and Pat Witt; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Services are scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, 2017, at Randall and Roberts Fishers Mortuary, 12010 Allisonville Road. Visitation is scheduled for 4 p.m. until the time of service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center, 2400 North Tibbs Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46222.
