remembered and missed by her grandparents, Ron Brown, Cathie Brown, Beth Brown, Delphine Curtis, Terry Curtis and Maureen Curtis, her great grandmother Erna Giese, as well as her aunts and uncles, Carol Brown, Dan Weatherly, Lorin Vigen, Cheryl

Makayla was a student at Rose Valley Elementary school. In her short life, she enjoyed and explored in many activities. Her most recent enjoyments were tap and hip hop classes and playing in her first year of basketball as number 46 alongside many of her school friends. Her face lit up when she mastered a new basketball skill and scored. She had taken music lessons and began with piano but decided to play the guitar in recent years and loved it! Makayla enjoyed going to music lessons alongside her sister and father who took lessons at the same school. Makayla is a quick witted, comical, affectionate and passionate spirit. She had grown in confidence, been consistent with her curiousity and
enthusiasm in trying new things, and maintained a loyal and loving person to those she cared about.
The Celebration of Life for Makayla Curtis will be at Trinity Baptist Church, on Saturday November 19th, 2011 from 11:00 – 12: 15 with Reception to follow. Family will have viewing from 10:00-10:45.
In celebration of Makayla’s uniqueness, we welcome you to wear mismatched socks!
