Daisy Rachel Hall (17 months) of Reno, Nevada returned to her Father in Heaven on Tuesday, August 3, 2010, having humbly met the challenges of Tay Sachs Disease. Daisy was born on February 16, 2009 in Reno to Scott and Anne Hall.
Daisy was a sweet and gentle child who touched the hearts of everyone who came into her life. While her body may have had disabilities, her spirit did not. Daisy radiated love and peace to others, and was a joy and a gift to her family.
Daisy will be dearly missed by her parents and her older brother Ezra, Reno; Grandpa Allen and Grandma Lyn (Craig and Lynette Allen, Gilbert, Iowa); Grandpa Hall and Grammy Z (Glade and Elizabeth Hall, Sparks); Great-Grandma Wanda King (Midvale, Utah); Great-Grandparents Verna and Verlin Allen (Medford, Oregon); 13 aunts and uncles and 21 cousins in Nevada, California, Utah, and Wisconsin; and many great-aunts, great-uncles, and cousins. Daisy was preceded in death by her Grandma Maggie (Margaret A. Fowles Hall); her Great-Grandparents C. Leness Hall and Addie Lowe Hall; Eli Russell Fowles and Annis Jones Fowles; and her Great-Grandpa R. Kent King.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, August 7, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at the Neil Road Chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 4751 Neil Road, Reno. Arrangements are under the direction of Ross, Burke and Knobel Mortuary, with interment at Mountain View Cemetery, where Daisy will be buried close to her Grandma Maggie.
The family expresses sincere gratitude to the many friends and family members whose prayers and love have blessed and sustained them and Daisy during the past several months. Particular thanks to the following—Cathy and Saint Mary’s Hospice; therapists Lisa, Courtney, and Melissa at The Continuum; and Drs. Kinman, Althoff, and Rodriguez—whose skills and service have been exemplary and whose dedication and compassion have been both a comfort and an inspiration.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Northern Nevada RAVE Family Foundation, P.O. Box 2072, Sparks, Nevada, 89432, (775) 334-9647.
