Kalayh Brown

CHAMPAIGN — Just 29 days after coming into the world, Kalayh Lindagail Brown passed away peacefully in bed at her parents’ home in Champaign. During that fleeting time here, she touched many lives and was loved by all who met her.

Born right at 40 weeks and weighing only 5 pounds, 7 ounces, Kalayh was small but strong and touched so many during her brief stay on Earth. She had the best qualities of both her parents, but she could have been her father’s twin. She was born at 11:33 p.m. on Aug. 5 and passed away on Sept. 3, 2018.

Kalayh joins her great-grandparents, grandparents, cousins and aunts and uncles in heaven. She is survived by her mother and father, Alexander Brown and Harley Zimmerman; her sister, Londyn Brown; her grandparents, Wallace Zimmerman and Laura Davey; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

A graveside service will take place at Grandview Memorial Gardens at 1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 14, 2018.
