LOSETH, Ayla Grace
December 16, 2012 — November 29, 2022
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ayla Grace Loseth, who was called to the Lord’s embrace on November 29, 2022.
Ayla was a beautiful and vibrant presence to all who knew her. She was gifted, artistic, and incredibly talented; she generously shared her singing, dancing, and artistry with anyone she came across. She was quick to build close friendships, especially as she entered into her new school life at Mar Jok Elementary. She was a very social girl and enjoyed being around people, and made sure to maintain the relationships by frequently staying in touch.
Ayla showed her warm and caring nature in most everything she did, and loved to help. She had a strong sense of responsibility, and took exceptional care of her baby brother Leighton, who she loved dearly.
She loved animals, and had three pets: her cat Moose, and two dogs, Blue and Sally. She was also an accomplished equestrienne, and loved her pony, Holly, and her Arabian horse, Titanium. She was very active and enjoyed outdoor sports such as kayaking, snowboarding, and being out on the snowmobile, and she especially enjoyed sharing these activities with her brother Leighton.
Ayla’s memory is cherished by her parents, Chrissy and Brady Loseth; her younger brother Leighton; her grandparents, Sharon & Peter, John & Rodica, Bianca & Murray, and
Jim & Michelle; and her extended family, including Auntie Lindsay, Auntie Katie & Anna, and Uncle Cody & Ian. She will also be remembered by her friends, teachers, and classmates at Mar Jok Elementary and Hudson Road Elementary, as well as the countless others whose lives she had touched.
Ayla’s Celebration of Life will be held this Friday, December 9, 2022, at 11:00 AM, at Trinity Church Kelowna (1905 Springfield Rd, Kelowna, BC), followed by a reception gathering.

OUR LADY OF LOURDES
I am devastated to read of Ayla’s passing and so very sad for her parents and family members. I met Ayla and spent a fair bit of time talking with her while Chrissy and Brady mulled over buying their first home. Ayla had a lovely personality and at one point she asked her mum if I came with the house. Briefly, we were friends; forever, I will remember her, her mum and her dad who came to live where I helped raise my family.
My heart goes out to family and friends.

We are far, we knew about Ayla only from pictures and stories told by Rodica and John, but we have suffered a lot when we find out! I am sure she’s soul is now in God’s hands, and we would like to be there to embrace she’s brother and both parents ! Be strong and take good care of Ayla’s brother ! He needs his family more than everything!
Good trip in the LIGHT Ayla !
