Born on April 19, 2020, Presley McKay Howland accompanied her twin sister Navy June Howland in joining the loving care of their parents Benson Ross Howland and Sandra (Gabby) Gabrielle Howland.
Presley fought hard to get to that point and fought even harder to survive 20 days in the NICU. On May 8, 2020, Presley peacefully passed away with her parents by her side. Presley left an impact on the family, friends, and community she was surrounded by that will never be forgotten. Her strength to fight despite insurmountable odds proved as an example to us all of what it means to be strong.
Presley is preceded in death by her grandfather Daniel Evan Hanekamp.
Presley is survived by her sister Navy June Howland; her parents Benson Ross and Sandra Gabrielle Howland; and her grandparents Lawrence Kay Howland II, Rebecca Case Howland, and Tammy Hanekamp Black.
“An angel wrote in the book of life my baby's date of birth, then whispered as she closed the book, ‘Too beautiful for earth.’”
