Malichai Trey King and Kaitlynn Raelynn Clymer, waited for the birth of their daughter, Avonlea Rae King, with joyful expectations. On March 24, 2016 she arrived at St. Catherine Hospital at 5:47 a.m., weighing in at 8 pounds 15.3 ounces, measuring 21 inches long, with a head full of hair.
Avonlea’s life, however brief, was a bright glimmer of our greatest blessing.
Avonlea’s legacy will live on in two other infants, as her heart valves were donated to save their lives.
Heaven’s gain is our loss. . . Those who preceded Avonlea, welcomed her with open arms. Those she left behind love and miss her.
Survivors include her parents Malichai and Kaitlynn; Grandparents Sundance and Jermey Hoyt, and Tobi Clymer all of Garden City; Great Grandparents Patrick and Marsha Carr, Diane Lee, Gloria Mesa, and Mike and Barb Hoyt all of Garden City; Great Great Grandparents Robert Carr of Ulysses, Ks., Helen Hoyt-Blackman of Garden City, Aubrey and Kay Parks of Garden City, and Mary Jo and Duke of Grove, Ok.; Aunts Maggie Hoyt and McKayla Clymer of Garden City; as well as many many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Friends may call from 1:00 p.m. to service time on Thursday at Cornerstone Church. The family request memorials given to the Avonlea King Memorial Fund in care of Garnand Funeral Home.
