Leylani Everlee Kellar
September 19, 2022 to June 11, 2023
Leylani Everlee Kellar gained her wings and joined the angels unexpectedly on June 11th. Leaving behind a grieving mother, Taylor Swanson, and father, Dylan Kellar. Her beautiful soul is now resting with those who predeceased her: Great Grandmother JoAnn Kellar, Great Grandparents David and Susanna Swanson, Great Grandmother Ruth Jarvis, and Great Grandmother Donna DeGroff.
She was a true blessing to all of those who loved her. Those beautiful eyes that beamed with joy and happiness. Her smile that instantly warmed the heart while lightning up the room and her giggles that were so contagious. She may have only been with us for a short time but the impact on the lives of those who love her will be with them forever.
Leylani was just begin to experience the world. First tastes of foods her favorite being daddys pancakes and eggs, rolling over and grabbing her favorite toys, crawling over to momma so she would scoop her up with hugs and kisses, talking away with her repetitive dadada dadada sneaking in a maamaa when she wanted to change it up, standing and almost at the point of walking on her own. She loved going to the park, zoo, and aquarium with her mommy and daddy. She was amazed by her favorite animated show Mickey Mouse Club with the colorful characters and the music she could bounce to. She had the greatest cuddling ability that just lifted even the worst of days. Her whole family enjoyed watching her grow and start developing her own little personality. She was perfect in every way. Happy, Healthy, Beautiful, Smart, and Loved beyond words.
In addition to her parents she is survived by her Great Grandfather John Kellar of Berlin, Great Grandparents Stanley and Penel DeGroff of Stephentown and Great Grandmother Addie Pulver of Ghent, her Grandparents, Sherri and Jim Willis of Stephentown, Leah and Jeff Colvin of Rensselaer, Bill and Paula DeGroff of Berlin, Kevin Swanson and Jaclyn Kelly of Georgia, along with several adoring Aunts and Uncles.
Services will take place at Thomas P. Mooney Funeral Home in Nassau, NY on June 19, 2023. Calling hours will be held from 1 pm to 3 pm with a service starting at 3 pm. There will be a celebration of Leylani at the Nassau Ambulance Hall immediately following the service.
