Lilyandra Whittington

Lilyandra Eileen Mae Whittington was born November 16, 2019, in North Platte, Nebraska, to Stephanie Aeby and Brent Whittington. Lilyandra brought so much life, love and laughter into the world. She loved to play and dance with her parents and her sisters.

“Like a shooting star flying across a room, so fast, so far gone too soon.”

“Eyes like the beautiful blue sky above our heads, where you lay to watch over us to let us know you are still here with beautiful sunrises and sunsets every day. They are a reminder to all who have loved you and those who continue to love you. You are still near and dear to us. As long as the world turns round and round, with the day you were found to exist, the day you were brought into this world, and the day you left us will be marked on the calendar for you and only you. My sweet baby girl, I love you.”

Lilyandra passed away early Friday morning, October 21, 2022, at her home in Benkelman. She was 2 years of age.

Lilyandra was preceded in death by her great-grandparents: Bessie Jean and Harry Hendrix.
