In Loving Memory of Katie Ann (Tapp) Acheampong

August 2, 1986 – October 28, 2023

Katie Ann (Tapp) Acheampong, a radiant soul, departed from us on October 28, 2023, at the age of 37, following a brave and resilient battle against breast cancer. Born in Indianapolis on August 2, 1986, to Phillip and Sherri Tapp, Katie's luminous spirit touched everyone she encountered.

A graduate of Columbus East High School in 2005, Katie furthered her education at Ivy Tech, culminating in a fulfilling career as a Respiratory Therapist at Franciscan Health. Her dedication to healing and compassion was evident throughout her many years of service.

On June 10, 2016, Katie embraced a lifelong journey with her soulmate, Kofi Acheampong. An adventurer at heart, Katie's love for the outdoors and zest for exploration led her to embark on captivating journeys, both near and far. Her travels, filled with cultural delights, mirrored her passion for trying new foods and savoring moments of joy.

Katie's most cherished role was that of a devoted mother to her adored children, Brenya Elizabeth and Asher Nimako. She found immense joy in family gatherings and cherished moments with friends, illuminating every room with her infectious laughter and vibrant spirit.

Survived by her beloved husband, Kofi Acheampong, and their cherished children, Brenya Elizabeth and Asher Nimako, Katie leaves behind a legacy of love and warmth. She is also survived by her parents, Phillip and Sherri Tapp, and her sisters, Lindsay Mitchell and Kelli Nelson. Katie's nieces, Perrey and Molly, and nephews, Reid, Alec, and Bryce, brought her immeasurable joy. She is also remembered fondly by aunts, uncles, and several cousins.

Katie reunites in spirit with her grandparents, Linda and Richard Crist, and Kenneth and Norma Tapp, all of Mooresville, along with her aunt, Cynthia Crist Jennings.

Katie’s Life Celebration® gathering will be Friday, November 3, 2023, from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM at O’Riley – Branson Funeral Service & Crematory, 6107 S. East Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46227.
