Ryleigh Kathryn King
June 4, 2006 ~ January 30, 2020
Ryleigh was born on June 4, 2006 in Shreveport, Louisiana to her loving parents Janet and Bernie King.
Our sweetest little lover, Ryleigh, ran into the arms of Jesus on January 30th, 2020 at 5:48 PM. She was embraced by her family, with the strongest love, as she took her final breaths. Ryls love for life and people was without limits. She lived beautifully with intense passion and anticipation of her next adventure. Ryleigh had so many special gifts, but our favorite was her gift of connecting with people and creating relationships. She touched people with her beautiful smile, precious voice and expressive soul through the ultimate language of love. Ryleigh loved. Deeply. She loved her family, her friends and people. She loved life. She loved hanging out with Mo, singing, dancing, giving kisses and hugs, Camp Munroe, music, swimming, riding the bus, reading books, meeting people, going to school, taking baths, playing with her friends, her paci and anything that was daring and fast. Ryleigh is wild and free, running the streets of gold. Stay wild, sweet lover.
Ryleigh is survived by her loving parents; greatest big sister Morgan, maternal grandparents John and Judy Shinn of Fort Worth, TX; paternal grandparents Bernard and Karen King of Raleigh, NC; aunts and uncles Brink and Kelly Shinn of Louisville, KY; Eric and Kelly Roberts, Pat and Megan King all of Dallas, TX; Leanne King, Kevin King all of Raleigh, NC; and Mark and Jackie LaRovere of Tomball, TX; cousins Marilyn, Cam, Henry, Lennon, Landry, Kennedy, Jacob, Isaac and Caleb and many loving extended family members and friends.
