Kayleigh was a precious, sweet young girl. She was loved by everyone and could easily relate to people of all ages. She loved the family farm and enjoyed helping her great grand dad with daily chores. Kayleigh enjoyed spending time jumping on the trampoline with her cousins or following Cousin Jacob around. She dreamed of being a probation officer like her “Aunt Mama” Sue Anne. Kayleigh loved the county fair with its roller coaster rides and trips to the beach. Her time here on earth was certainly too short but left such a lasting impression on the hearts of everyone.
A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, April 19, 2022 at 4:00 pm in the Clarkton Cemetery with Rev. Willard McPherson officiating.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Band of Clarkton School of Discovery, 10000 N. College Street, Clarkton, NC 28433.
