Rian Ann Van Gorp, 20, beautiful, spontaneous monkey butt of Kevin and Heather Van Gorp, gained her angel wings, Wednesday, May 8, 2024.

Rian was born on October 15, 2003 in Waterloo, Iowa and lit up the world from day one. Her infectious smile and energy touched the lives of everyone she encountered, her enduring personality will never be forgotten. She will continue to stay with us through memories and laughter, which Rian has forever imprinted in our hearts and minds.

Rian graduated in 2022 from Bondurant-Farrar High School and left far too soon before she could finish her life adventures.

Visitation will be held from 4-7 p.m., Thursday, May 16, with funeral services on Friday, May 17 at 1 p.m., both at Iles Grandview Park Chapel, 3211 Hubbell Avenue in Des Moines, IA.

A celebration of life is to follow the service at Brick and Ivy Rooftop, 400 34th Avenue SW in Altoona, IA. Family requests that no black be worn.

Rian is survived by her parents, Kevin and Heather (Truex) Van Gorp of Bondurant; her favorite brothers, Brenden and Kale Van Gorp; grandparents: Roger and Nancy Truex and Carol Van Gorp; aunts and uncles: Brit and Kazumi Truex and Craig and Rachel Van Gorp; aunt Kelli and her S/O David Grote; cousins: Brady, Kenzie, Faith, Tayveon, Tatum, Markiyah, Dakota, and Brazell; and more friends than you can ever imagine.

Rian was welcomed with open arms in the eternal gates of heaven by her grandpa, Ken Van Gorp; great-grandparents: Edna and Lester Truex and Richard Huenink; her dog, Blue; and cats, Chloe and Lady.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to a Go Fund Me at or to Heather’s Venmo, @Heather-VanGorp.
