Rylee Kristian Ewald, age 8 years old, of Yukon joined the angels in Heaven along with her mother Tonya on Friday, April 19, 2019. Rylee was born on October 15, 2010 to proud parents Tonya and Eric. Though her brother Landon was older, she looked up to him and enjoyed spending time with him. She was currently in second grade at Ranchwood Elementary in Yukon. Her teachers and friends loved her dearly. From dancing and tumbling, to rooting for the Chicago Cubs with her dad, she discovered the joy in life. She always had a smile on her face and made friends wherever she went. Her passion in life was animals, especially unicorns and her dog Lucy.
