Visitation will continue one hour prior to the funeral mass on Saturday. Sky was born to Julie and Jason Stevens on April 29, 2013. We always knew she had a special mission in life. In her short 4-1/2 years of life she changed so many people. She taught pure love to all who met her. Sky’s best friend in the world was her sister, Meadoh. They were always getting into something together. Her big brother, Ben, taught her to be tough yet gentle. He would always goof around with her but her parents caught several secret dances and snuggles. Between the three, they made the perfect family. Sky loved to dance, animals (especially her dog, Doober and kitties), butterflies, rainbows, unicorns and glitter! Sky is survived by her parents, Julie and Jason; her brother, Ben and sister, Meadoh; her grandma and grandpa, Beverly (Follman) and Daryl Stevens; uncle, Brad Stevens; aunt, Kristine (Stevens) Lunde; grandpa, Darany Mees; uncles, Paul Mees, Chris (Sara) Mees, and Matt (Amanda) Mees; great-grandmas, Luella Follman, Clara Mees, Whaneta Gerhardt. She was preceded in death by her grandma, Helen Mees; great-grandparents, Whitey Mees, Clem Gerhardt, James Stevens, Louise Stevens, and Henry Follman. Both of us will be you and me forever “and ever.” Memorials may be given to the family for their intention of building a park in Sky’s honor.
