Obituary for Eva Louise Ikerd

Eva Louise Ikerd died peacefully at home in the arms of her loving parents, April 26, 2016 at 4:05pm. Eva was born September 11, 2015 at 11:43 pm at St. John Hospital in Detroit to parents, Elizabeth¬Anne (nee Foltz) and Jeremy Ikerd. She weighed 1 lb 8 oz and was approximately 13.5 inches long.

Eva was Baptized into the Hands of God the morning of September 12, 2015. She was a Beautiful Child of God that everyone was so thankful for.

Also with help from the Children’s Hospital in Detroit, Mayo Clinic, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Wiedemann-Rautenstrach syndrome is a very rare genetic disorder.

Despite Eva’s disorder, she was full of spirit and had the biggest personality. Everybody who knew Eva commented on her huge personality. She was very sassy and loved spending time in her bouncy chair. She loved to cuddle and really enjoyed listening to her parents and siblings read to her and to the Beginners Bible on Youtube.

From her conception until her death her parents have commended her into the hands of her heavenly Father. They now grieve with a sure and certain hope of eternal life and the resurrection of the body that comes through the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
