Stella Padgett-BergerJuly 20, 2015 ~ August 24, 2017 (age 2)
Stella Alaine Padgett-Berger, age 2, went home to Jesus on Thursday, August 24, 2017. Stella was born on July 20, 2015 to Kyle Barton Berger and Kyleigh Krysteen Padgett Berger. Two minutes. That is how long Stella Alaine was predicted by the best medical professionals to be on this Earth, but by the grace of God we were able to share 2 years, 1 month, and 4 days with our beautiful miracle girl. In her short life, Stella overcame numerous obstacles, surgeries, and medical conditions. Her first two hundred and thirty four days were spent at Riley Children's hospital before she was able to leave and begin a life at home. She exceeded the expectations of everyone and wore a contagious smile while doing so. She touched many lives and brought light to the darkest of hours.
Stella, or Stellie Belle as she was called, loved to play with her older sister, make her daddy laugh, and give kisses to mommy. Her favorite part of the day was bath time and being covered from her dark brown curly head to her perfect tiny toes in baby magic lotion. She loved to play with her toy piano and cuddle her special Willy worm.
Stella is survived by her loving mommy and daddy, Kyleigh and Kyle Berger and big sister, Sophia Berger all of Huntertown.
Maternal grandparents are Ron and Stacy Padgett of Eaton, Indiana; Lori Norton and her companion, Mike Gaither both of Hartford City, Indiana.
Paternal grandparents, Robert and Pamela Berger of Fort Wayne.
