She participated in Marksville Little League Baseball, playing catcher and second base position. She also enjoyed singing and dancing. A competitive person she was! Regardless of the game, Cierra was going to try to win!
As a member of Avoyelles House of Mercy, Cierra loved performing in plays and programs honoring her Savior. She was also a member of St. Genevieve Catholic Church where she served as an altar server. Although very young, Cierra knew her God.

Her contagious smile and vivacious spirit brightened the souls of everyone. She will be greatly missed.
