Tahlia Precious Rosie Wolfleg (A-pa -nii – Butterfly) passed away on Wednesday, September 2, 2009 at the Alberta Children’s Hospital at the age of 20 weeks.
Tahlia was brought to us on April 15, 2009, weighing 8lbs 10 oz, at the Rockyview General Hospital at 8:49 a.m. Tahlia was such a lively, silly and happy baby. She was always known for brightening anybody’s day with her beautiful smile and the joy of her presence. Tahlia was so advanced for 4 ½ months old. At two months she was talking, greeting and chanting to all those she met or had contact with. At three months she was already rolling on her stomach and most recently she was working on trying to crawl. This precious angel will never be forgotten and will always live in our hearts.
Tahlia is survived by her parents Karlee Wolfleg and Darris Saddle Back; grandparents, Agar and Fran Wolfleg and Melvina and Alfred Many Heads; great grandparents, Melvin and Georgina Solway and Cecile Many Guns, Josephine and Simon Sitting Eagle, Levi and Gail Many Heads; great great aunt and uncle, Yvonne (Jerry) Black Horse and Cecilia Many Heads.
