"For anyone that knew Kayli they knew that she was feisty, full of life and always wanted to do something big. She got her wish. Kayli was a shooting star, she came in hot and fast, and was gone just as quickly, leaving bits of herself everywhere along her journey. It was because of the way her light went out and angel's guiding us that she was able to become one of only 1% of people that are able to become full donors.
Kayli passed away at 6:45pm on May 5, 2019 She leaves behind a husband (Ian Haun) a son (Corbin Hawker 17, Salt Lake City, Utah), a daughter (Sarah Bamford 13, Yucaipa, California), and a daughter with Ian (Makenna Haun 2, St. George, Utah). Also 2 children that were adopted and last known lived in Boise, Idaho; Alicia (1998) and Caleb (2000). She is also survived by mother Janiel Eldredge, also birth mother Britt Hawker. She is preceded in death by both fathers, Steven Eldredge and Russell Theron Martindale.
She did do something great with her life she brought 5 beautiful children into this world and they meant everything to her unfortunately she was not able to raise all of them and some were lost in the world due to circumstances outside of herself. She hoped to someday reconnect with the children she had lost connection with but unfortunately never got the chance. However, because her husband Ian had the courage to keep fighting to fulfill her wishes and left second guessing and doubt behind Kayli will leave behind a beautiful selfless legacy and others will go on to live full lives because of her sacrifice. Kayli’s wish was to be cremated and become a willow tree. Her wishes will be honored. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Anyone that wishes to donate to the family for expenses may do so here or on the Facebook Fundraiser, all proceeds go directly to Ian and Makenna.
Even though this is a beautiful story to tell. We do not wish by any means to glorify suicide. Please depression is an ANGRY MOB robbing you of everything good. Please do not ever push someone over the edge or ignore their pleas GET HELP, GIVE HELP, Suicide is a PERMANENT solution to a TEMPORARY problem. It only transfers pain to those left behind it does not end it. Thank you all who helped make this possible. Words cannot begin to express our gratitude. Thank you thank you thank you. Peace be with you! Love and light. 4444
