Our beloved daughter, Haleigh Nicole Gerber, passed away on Monday, November 26, 2019. Born on October 28, 1999 to our beloved niece, Stephanie Gordon, she became our daughter in 2002.
Haleigh had a beautiful gift of making everyone smile and she cared very deeply for her friends and family. She loved to dance and her cats, Peep and Mellow, who will miss her so much. Haleigh loved to paint. She left behind many paintings that will forever be cherished. Haleigh loved the water, whether it be the lakes in Michigan or the beaches in Florida.
She was full of compassion and always strove to help whenever she could. If she saw someone struggling, she was the first person to lend a hand whether it be money or friendship. Haleigh gave us the gift of laughter, love and purpose. She was the absolute light of our lives and provided us with elation daily. Haleigh gave us gifts we cannot repay. She provided us strength and comfort in times of distress and was our pride and joy.
Haleigh is preceded in death by her mother, Stephanie Gordon; and sister, Abby Gordon.
Haleigh is survived by her sisters, Livy Roach, and Grace Freitas; her uncle, Evan Hand; parents, Jay and Kristin Gerber; grandmothers, Lois Schultz and Carol Schmacht. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was taken from us all to soon and may God comfort all of those that knew and loved her.
