November 17, 1997 – September 7, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Kayla, a radiant and cherished young woman who brought joy to all who knew her. Kayla’s journey on this earth was too short, but the impact she left on us will endure forever.

Born on November 17, 1997 Kayla was a beacon of positivity, kindness, and resilience. She embraced life with an unwavering spirit and a smile that could brighten the darkest of days. Her infectious laughter was a melody that will forever echo in our hearts.

She leaves behind a grieving family: her parents, Mike and Heather, her brother, Husband Brad, and a multitude of friends whose lives she touched profoundly. While we mourn the loss of Kayla, let us also celebrate the incredible life she lived.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, September 16th at 11:30am at Rifle Gap Group Picnic Area, where Kayla and Brad got married this past June. We invite all who knew and loved Kayla to join us in honoring her memory and sharing stories of her remarkable life. This is a potluck style celebration. Please bring a dish to share and help us celebrate our beautiful Kayla.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to the Bradley Youngman Go Fund Me; to help pay for funeral expenses.

Kayla may have left this world, but her spirit lives on in the hearts of those she touched. Let us remember her for her boundless love, unwavering kindness, and the beautiful soul she was. Kayla, you will forever be missed and never forgotten.
