Kailey Grace Westerhuis was born on July 27, 2006 to Scott and Nicole (Fish) Westerhuis in Platte, SD. She attended the third grade at Platte-Geddes Community School and was a member of the First Reformed Church. Kailey was excited to be involved in T-ball, swim team, cheer and Awana, but most of all she enjoyed the time she spent with her friends.

Kailey will fondly be remembered for her ability to light up a room with her smile and personality. She was such a joyful child that loved and was loved by all her classmates. Kailey enjoyed drawing pictures for teachers, classmates, and friends portraying her love for each of them. She held a soft spot in her heart for a classmate with disabilities. Kailey always wanted to play with her during recess. She could not wait to be involved in Girls on the Run with her older sister and loved participating in competitive swimming, and the ICE cheerleading program. Kailey made sure to give the elementary principal a hug each day.

Grateful for having shared in Kailey’s life: her grandparents, George and Karen Fish of Platte, SD; her grandmother, Pat Westerhuis of Platte, SD; her great-grandfather, Floyd Beukelman of Sioux Falls, SD; along with aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.

Kailey was preceded in death by: her grandfather, Harm Westerhuis; an aunt, Gina Westerhuis and an uncle, Tim Fish. Also her parents, Scott and Nicole; two brothers, Michael and Connor; and sister, Jaeci.
