Kayla Jordan Bergerson, born June 16, 1989, was called home on Monday, April 29, 2013, in Sun Valley Idaho.
Kayla was born at Griffiss Air Force Base hospital in Rome, N.Y. She grew and thrived there when her family moved to Anchorage Alaska, in 1994. Kayla graduated from Wood River High School in 2008 and began her adult life in Hailey, Idaho, with her mother and brother.
Kayla is survived by her mother Alicia, brother David, and nephew Aden, all from Idaho; her father, Paul; step-mother Tammy; younger brother Jacob, from South Dakota; her grandfather Willis; uncles Billy and Wesley, of New York; her uncle Craig, of Florida; aunts Colleen, Wendy and Amy of New York; and many cousins around the globe. Extended family includes Rich and Jan Dees; step-sister LeAnna; close family friends George, Megan, Meggie, Laura, Randi, Blair, Julie, James and Charles; and all of her co-workers at the Sun Valley Co. Clubhouse, just to name a few, as there are so many wonderful people Kayla considered “family.”
The angels waiting for Kayla include grandmother Dorothy; grandfather Sam, uncle Brian; great-grandmother Josie; great-grandfather Sam Sr.; aunt Phyllis; cousin Joe; and many friends.
Kayla touched the lives of so many people. She lived, loved and laughed hard but her friends and family in heaven needed her more and she was called home. The Great Gates are held open wide for our angel Kayla to enter. We will miss Kayla dearly but we will find great relief finally knowing that she is safe, happy and healthy. Until we hug again, my sweet Kayla.
