HENNING, Jaylea Alana
September 2, 1987 — February 2, 2021
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our precious Jaylea Alana Henning on February 2, 2021, at the age of 33. Jaylea is survived by her mother Cynthia Myers, her father Kerry Henning, and sisters Natasha and Larissa. She was predeceased by her loving grandparents Alfred and Norma Myers, her Uncle Ross Myers, and her fur baby Oscar.
Born September 2, 1987, Jaylea was raised in Winnipeg, MB. As a child she enjoyed spending her time reading and drawing because she loved school and learning. She would always earn high marks and was known for her many “3r” awards. She had taken many courses, had a few bursaries and spoke a few languages. She was a beautiful child who could always be found dragging around her stuffed seal! As an adult Jaylea became a very kind soft-spoken woman with a beautiful soul. One who was intelligent, artistic, spiritual, and brave. With her humour and smile she could light up a room. She enjoyed good food and cooking. She recently settled in West Kelowna, BC and could be found spending time at the beach, hiking, rollerblading, or with her mom.
Jaylea was a proud loving aunt to nephews Dylan, Nathan, Kivan and Zerevan. She leaves behind many family and friends who cared about her deeply as she did about them. She will live on forever in our hearts and others through her organ donations.
Cremation has taken place and a family service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Mental Health Awareness.
