Chastiti Angelique Lepine, 48, of DeWitt passed away October 18th, 2023, at the Encore Heart Hospital in Bryant.
Chastiti was born on April 17th, 1975, in Warren Arkansas to proud parents Kim and Teresa Hargis. From an early age, Chastiti was protective of her younger brother Casey, watching over him like a mother hen. She continued this trait with her sons, Gavin, and Gamble Lepine.
Chastiti graduated from Hermitage High School as an honor graduate in 1993. She continued her education at Margaret’s Hair Academy, and then at Jeffersons School of Nursing until 2002. Starting her career as an RN, Chastiti worked diligently, touching the hearts of all that she encountered throughout Arkansas. After many years of dedication to nursing, she continued her education as a Nurse practitioner at UAMS, graduating in 2020.
Chastiti is survived by her husband of 23 years, Steven Lepine, and two children Gavin and Gamble Lepine of DeWitt; parents Kim and Teresa Hargis of Wilmar; mother-in-law Linda Manis of Maumelle; father-in-law Emile Lepine Jr. of DeWitt; uncles Glen Gates of Warren, Larry Hargis of Monticello, Reggie Hargis of Monticello; brother Kim C. Hargis of Fayetteville; sisters-in-law Julie (John) Barksdale of Fayetteville, Natalie Manis of Rogers; nephew Cason Hargis of Hermitage; and nieces Alexa Hargis of Hermitage, Lauren Petty of Fayetteville, Emily Hayes of Rogers, and Hanna Hayes of Rogers.
Chastiti was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents Liz and Cliff Gates of Warren, and paternal grandparents Carl and Joyce Hargis of Johnsville.
Chastiti may have left this world abruptly, but in our hearts, she lives on, playing cards with her grandparents up above.
A memorial service will be held Friday, October 27th, 2023, at the First Baptist Church at 5:00 p.m. in DeWitt, Arkansas. A time of fellowship will follow.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation or the Alzheimer’s Association.
