Akyrlee Rose Gray, precious baby girl of Jessica(Vassmer) and Lukas Gray was born into the arms of Angels on February 5, 2022 at Blessing Hospital in Quincy IL. Born at 21 weeks she weighed 7.5 oz and was 9 inches long. Although Akyrlee never spent any time with us on earth, she was very loved and touched many lives. Her brother Adler was preparing to be her biggest protector. Her brother Asher had long prayed for her and could not wait to meet her. Her sister Arleigh checked nearly everyday about how she was doing and dreamed of the day they could play together. Our little girl will never be forgotten.
She is greeted in Heaven by maternal great grandfather Charles Vassmer and paternal great grandparents Constance Corrigan, David and Jacqueline Gray, and James and Dorothy Prunty.
In addition to her parents, brothers, and sister, she is mourned on Earth by maternal grandparents Mark and Ann Vassmer of Springfield Il.; paternal grandparents Kenneth and Pamela Gray of Loraine, Il., and Michael and Stacey Chapman of Loraine, Il.; great grandparents Jerry and Carol Drehobl, Gloria Vassmer, and Ray Corrigan; great great grandmother Doris Cornwell; many uncles, aunts, cousins, and so many dear friends.
