DANVILLE – Reiley Jeanell Powell, infant daughter of Lester and Ericka Powell of Danville, died Sunday, Dec. 30, 2012, at Children's Hospital of Illinois at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, Peoria.

Reiley was small but her biggest enjoyment was showing how sassy and full of attitude she could be. She knew just how to get attention. She touched so many lives and left such an impression on so many people in her short time with us.
