Klarissa M. Bivins

January 16, 1990 - August 19, 2021

GREENWOOD – Grief touched the Bivins home as Klarissa M. Bivins, 31, became a victim of recent flooding in the Greenwood area on Thursday (August 19, 2021).

Mrs. Bivins was born on January 16, 1990 in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine to Gary and Theresa (Currier) Porter. She was a 2008 graduate of Greenville Consolidated School in Greenville, Maine. On September 22, 2018, in their backyard beside the pond, Klarissa married her knight, Lance A. Bivins, who survives.

Klarissa was employed as a Direct Support Professional with the Finger Lakes Region Developmental Disabilities Service Office, serving several families throughout the area. Prior to that she worked in the private sector at New Hope Community in Fallsburg. She found her work with the developmentally disabled extremely fulfilling, but her recent new title of “Mommy” outshined any occupational ambitions.

Along with her husband and her mother, Klarissa is survived by her “little man” Logan A. Bivins of Greenwood; her brother, Gary Porter, Jr. of Albany, her father-in-law, Keith A. (Rosemary Bork) Bivins of Williamsville, and her mother-in-law, Lynn M. Bivins of Parksville.

She was preceded in death by her father, Gary Porter.

Klarissa had a “mother’s heart” and was devoted to Logan, who was a long time in coming as she encountered various pregnancy difficulties. She enjoyed cooking and baking for her family.

She was fully invested in her husband and his interests of shooting, both guns and bow and arrow, which she shared with him. They also had a shared interest in watching movies, especially comedy specials. Knowing Klarissa meant that you understood her favorite holiday was Halloween, and that she was all about her family and loving on them.

Visitation will be on Friday (August 27) from 4–6 p.m. followed by a funeral service at 6:00 p.m. at Baker-Swan Funeral Home in Andover, officiated by Rev. Roger Gardner of Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in Alfred. Inurnment in Greenwood Cemetery will be held at a time convenient to the family. Online condolences may be offered at

In honor of all those couples struggling to conceive, memorial contributions in Klarissa’s name may be made to Sarah’s Laughter, 29252 Red Willow Drive, Denham Springs, LA 70726. © 2021 Baker-Swan Funeral Home.

  3. Reading “Knowing Klarissa meant that you understood her favorite holiday was Halloween” reminded me of some Halloween festivities at the old house on Firehouse Road and it truly was her favorite.
