Kaleigh Annabelle Carruthers
Kaleigh Annabelle Carruthers passed peacefully in the arms of her loving parents on Fri., Feb. 3, 2012.
Kaleigh was born on Jan. 26, 2011 with severe congenital heart disease. Kaleigh spent some time at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa before being transferred to Sick Kids in Toronto. After a year of fight and determination, Kaleigh took her final breaths at Roger’s House in Ottawa.
Kaleigh is the daughter of Trevor and Cheryl (nee Moriarty) Carruthers of Finch. She will be missed greatly by her parents, grandparents, great-grand-parents, aunts, and uncles.
We, Trevor and Cheryl, would like to send a special thank you for all the support from our small community and families during this difficult situation. Also, we would like to thank the nurses, doctors, and staff at both CHEO and Sick Kids.
A private family service was held with Rev. Wendy Wright-MacKenzie at the Morewood RA on Mon., Feb. 6.
A donation will be made on behalf of the community by us, Kaleigh’s parents, to both hospital foundations.
Kaleigh was a beautiful baby girl who touched so many lives in such a brief time. We will always miss and love her.
