BUTTE - Sierra Montana Kueffler passed from our arms to God's on Saturday, May 31, 2008, after succumbing to the effects of prematurity.
Our blue-eyed angel was born Oct. 30, 2007, in Missoula weighing just 1 pound, 14 ounces. Sierra was a happy baby and brought joy to all those who had the opportunity of caring for her, in particular her special neonatal intensive care unit nurses, who had grown so fond of her and her of them.
Sierra enjoyed watching the world out her window, keeping tabs on the other babies, looking at her pictures and playing with her plethora of stuffed animals, especially her Blue's Clues mobile.
Sierra is survived by her parents, Jennifer and Patrick Kueffler; her twin sister, Ember Rayne Kueffler; grandparents, Richard Blow and Edward and Frances Holmes; great-grandparents, Claudia Blow and Floyd and Babs Stewart; aunts and uncles, Jim and Bobbi Blow, Steve and Connie Hepola, Steve and Cathy Arneson, and Ed Holmes; numerous cousins; special friends; and the caring doctors, nurses and staff of Community Medical Center.
Sierra was preceded in death by her grandmother, Donna Blow; and great-grandparents, Joe Jovick, Roger and Tiny Holmes, Marjorie Stewart and James Blow.
In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to Neonatal Intensive Care Endowment, Community Medical Center Foundation, 2827 Fort Missoula Road, Missoula, MT 59804; or to Ronald McDonald House of Missoula 3003 Fort Missoula Road, Missoula, MT 59804.
Liturgy of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 5, in St. Ann's Church. Interment will follow in Holy Cross Cemetery.
