Kyleigh Mills Lindsey, age 7, of Ellabell, Georgia gained her angel wings January 21, 2020 at the Egleston Campus of Children’s Hospital of Atlanta. She was surrounded by her family and an amazing team of doctors and nurses.
Kyleigh was born August 23, 2012 in Asheville, North Carolina to Wendy Lightfoot Lindsey and Kyle Lindsey. She has lived the last 3 ½ years with her Aunt Gail Lightfoot Perry, her Uncle Eddie Perry and her “brother-cousins” Ethan, Jack and Aidan Perry. Kyleigh was also blessed to gain a “sister-cousin” when Ethan married Bailey Davis Perry.
Kyleigh was a proud 2nd grader at Lanier Primary School in Mrs. McIntosh’s class. She loved to learn new things, was excellent at math and everyone she met was instantly her friend. Kyleigh loved to fish, go to the beach, ride her bike, roller skate and play with her friends. Kyleigh loved animals and could never walk pass one without asking to pet it. She always sang and danced like no one was watching, even if they were! To know her was to love her; her presence had the ability to light up any room. She never met a stranger and loved them all.
Kyleigh was preceded in death by her grandfather, Phillip L. lightfoot. She is survived by her aunt, uncle, parents and cousins. She is also survived by her grandmother, Debbie “Dee Dee” Lightfoot, Eddie “Papa” Perry, Jr., Tina “Nana” Davis and Mr. Carlton Davis. She is survived by her brother, Roan Lightfoot Donahue, her Aunt Sarah Lightfoot Hodges, and her Uncle David Perry. Kyleigh will be loved and missed by numerous cousins, friends and extended family.
The family will receive friends from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m., Sunday, January 26, 2020 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.
The funeral service will be at 10:00 a.m., Monday, January 27, 2020 at Bible Baptist Church. Burial will follow at 1:00 p.m. at Northside Cemetery in Pembroke.
Gail I have no magic words to tell you how to overcome the passing of a child, I don’t believe there is a way. But remember that everyone who knew her loved her. I’ll miss her running around and around the statue on the square on St. Patrick’s Day. I did not know her well but God must have had a really important reason to call her to him. You and your family are in our prayers.
