With profound sadness and heavy hearts, the family of Kinley Rachel Mercer share of her passing on Saturday November 12, 2022, at the age of seven months. Kinley passed away peacefully in her parents’ arms, comforted by the love of her family.
Born on April 10, 2022, Kinley is loved by all who had the pleasure of meeting her. She spent her short life surrounded by family; camping, giggling, and playing super girl with her big sister Oaklynn. Kinley was happy, curious, and sweet-tempered. At 4 months old Kinley was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer and began treatment right away. She was brave, strong, and courageous and continually surprised all with her ability to fight.
We would like to thank the phenomenal team of medical professionals at the Alberta Children's Hospital and Rotary Flames House.
Kinley will be lovingly remembered by her parents Peter and Tristin Mercer, sister Oaklynn, dog Dex; grandparents, Rod and Lori Adamson, Iain and Janet Mercer; great-grandfather Larry Adamson; great-grandmother Elsa Wever as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Welcomed into heaven by great grandparents Alex and Joan Rachel Mercer; Rients Wever; Arlene Adamson and Doug and Shirra Main.
Kinley will always be a reminder to smile, love fiercely and be present. Her legacy will live on through acts of kindness and love.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday November 19th, 2022, at 2:30pm at the MARANATHA CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCH 260 McGill Blvd W, Lethbridge, AB T1K 4C6.
In lieu of flowers, donations would be gratefully accepted in Kinley’s memory to:
