GRAY, Jayda Alison Grace

February 9, 1998 – Chilliwack, British Columbia
July 14, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Jayda of Calgary, AB, passed away on July 14, 2018 at the age of 20 years.

When you encountered Jayda the qualities of her personal attributes were apparent and endless; she could lite up any room with her stunning smile and infectious laugher. She would stop people dead in their tracks with her captivating eyes. Many people will forever admire her for her unrelenting will to go for what she wanted. Jayda had an indomitable spirit, one that would encourage many friends and family to keep moving forward. She was blessed with an empathetic and giving disposition and she valued and loved her family members and friends.

Jayda left this world too soon; her life was just beginning. She struggled with some life choices she made, but she would emerge stronger and wiser. The loss is a devastating affliction and words simply do not do justice in explaining how much we will all love and will miss Jayda. We are all left with large voids in our hearts that we must trust in God to fill with our most cherished memories of Jayda. Now our dear Jayda can fly freely, and safe in the arms of angels and most of all her father. We take great comfort knowing Jayda and her father are together waiting to see us one day.

Our darling has gone to

to the angels above

Where there’s nothing  but

happiness, joy and love

Gone from this world

so full of strife

back to the God

who gave her life

So let us not fret or wish her back again

to go through the sorrows

that come to all men

but rejoice that God chose our

sweet, flower angel for his own

and taken her back to his heavenly home.

Jayda is survived by her mother, Tammy Lewis; her brother, Tyson Gray and Emily Frank; beloved niece and nephew, Gracelyn and Jaxson; maternal grandparents, Robert and Wanda Lewis; maternal grandmother, Gwen Kirsch; paternal grandparents, Terry and Eve Gray; paternal grandmother, Karen Gray; aunt and uncle, Shannon and Dennis Georgopoulos; aunt, Suzanne Gray; aunt, Naomi Williams; aunt, Rebekah Gray; many cousins, great aunts and uncles.

Jayda is predeceased by her father, Jason Gray.
