Obituary of Kayla Joann Ayers
Kayla Joann Ayers, 26, of Machesney Park passed away suddenly on Wednesday February 28, 2018. Born on August 28, 1991 in Troy, Michigan. Daughter of Dean Ayers and Lisa Vanderpool. Engaged to be married to Donald Burke. Kayla was employed as a Sandwich artist for Subway where she always had a smile on her face. Kayla found great enjoyment in fishing, going to Church, being with friends and family, volunteering at the Restoration Café and the Rockford Recuse Mission. Her pride and joy was her son, Corbin. He made life better for Kayla in every way. Even with Kayla’s sweet smile there was a battle going on within Herself. She was proud to have received her 8th month sobriety chip but somewhere along the way the addiction was too strong. Everyone now hopes that you are looking down from Heaven and seeing how much you were loved and adored by everyone who met you. It has been many hard battles you fought very hard every step of the way, however, Addiction won the war. God saw her constant struggle and decided to finally give her peace. Her smile, laugh and love will be missed by all who knew Kayla.
