Kailey Lora Stanke


May 21, 2014 - Oct. 26, 2014



Kailey Lora StankeKailey Lora Stanke, 5 months old, of Ixonia, earned her angel wings peacefully at her home on October 26, 2014. She was born at Waukesha Memorial Hospital on May 21, 2014, to her proud parents, Carrie and Brad Stanke.


Kailey spent the next four and a half months at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin with various health complications, including heart surgery. Kailey was a strong fighter and was finally able to come home on October 7, 2014. She inspired many people with her strength and determination to beat all the odds. Her contagious smiles and notoriously famous pouty lip will never be forgotten. Though our time with her was too short, we know that God needed another angel in Heaven.


She will be dearly missed by her grandparents, Edward Stanke, Kim Jewell, Jerry and Jen Spurley; great-grandparents, Ken and June Jewell, Kate Spurley; aunts and uncles, Jason and Mayme Spurley, Tom and Denise Wayne, and Jeff and Cheryl Broom; along with many more family, friends and loved ones.


Kailey was preceded in death by her grandmother Lora Stanke and uncle Craig Stanke.


Visitation will be held Friday, October 31, from 4-7pm at Crosspoint Community Church, W380-N6931 N. Lake Road, Oconomowoc. A memorial service immediately to follow at 7pm.
