Anna-Bayleigh Kish passed away unexpectedly on September 4, 2023, at the age of 3 at her home in Marion, AL.
Born to Allan and Ashleigh Kish on August 28, 2020, Anna-Bayleigh was our dancing, singing energetic miracle baby. Anna-Bayleigh loved playing with her little sister, Charli Rose, going to the farm to ride the tractor with Daddy, swimming and fishing on the river, and being spoiled by her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Some of Anna-Bayleigh’s favorite activities were playing with her friends, being outside, reading books and watching Tok-Toks (Tik-Tok).
Our family was not expecting the loss of Anna-Bayleigh or for her life to be cut so short so soon. We are devastated by this loss and will feel the absence of ‘AB’ forever. Anna-Bayleigh was the sweetest soul and a joy to be around. She will be forever missed.
Anna-Bayleigh will always be remembered by her parents, Allan and Ashleigh Simmons Kish and her baby sister, Charli Rose of Marion, AL.; her grandparents, Greg and Cheryl Kish of Orrville, AL, Kristi Johnson of Tuscaloosa, AL, and Carlton “Bobo” (Leslie) Simmons of Moundville, AL.; her aunts, Jessica Simmons, Emily (Paul) Waters, Grace Kish; her uncle, Hunter Simmons; her great-grandparents, Judy Jackson of Orrville, AL, and George and Liz Kish of Marion, AL.; her cherished friends, Drew and Kelly McLendon along with a host of family and friends who loved her dearly.
Anna-Bayleigh was greeted in heaven by her great-grandparents, Roy and Dorothy Simmons of Moundville, AL, Larry and Shirley Johnson of Tuscaloosa, AL and her great-grandfather Jerald Jackson of Orrville, AL.
