Brittany “Bri” Armstrong, of Kansas City, Missouri passed away November 3, 2019. She was born in Austin, Texas and spent her early years in Llano, Texas. While growing up in Texas, she attended Kickapoo Kamp for Girls in Kerrville for over ten years. She would spend evenings with her friends listening to music and watching the latest and scariest horror movies.
Her final three years of secondary school were spent at Platte R-3 High School in Platte City, Missouri graduating in 2018. While at Platte, a representative visited and invited Brittany to apply to Kansas City Art Institute. Brittany was accepted and awarded a scholarship to continue her academic career. The young award-winning artist placed second in the 2018 Congressional Art Competition and an Honorable Mention at the Kansas City Art Institute Scholastic Art & Writing awards of 2018.
Brittany’s broad perspective of life and use of imagination was contagious to friends and family. For example, she chose to love and appreciate all the colors of the world rather than settling with just one. The essence of Brittany could be described through a Val Uchendu’s quote. “If you choose to paint your life today…What will it be? Remember, you’re the artist, not the canvas.”
Brittany was tragically taken from us due to injuries she received in an auto accident. Unaware of the future, the selfless young woman prepared in advance to help others if able after her death. Recipients received Brittany’s final gifts shortly after her death. “The value of life is not its duration, but in its donation. You are not more important because how long you live, you are important because of how effective you live” – Myles Munroe.
She is survived by her mother, Cheryl O’Marley, of Marble Falls, Texas and brother, Dustin Armstrong and wife Judy, of Kansas City, MO. Father, Donnal Armstrong.
