Greensburg — Gabriella “Gabby” Elizabeth Staples, 7, passed away September 6, 2013, from hemaphagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (FHL/HLH), a debilitating disease she was born with. She was born January 26, 2006.

With a happy cheerful personality and a lovely smile that lit up every room, she will be sadly missed. She found her greatest happiness at the Greensburg Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses with her mother, Tara Staples; she cherished her association with all her spiritual brothers and sisters.

Now awaiting the awakening call of the resurrection, she is now resting in Jehovah’s memory; having the paradise hope (John 5:28-29).

She was very close to her sister, Taja Rai Bryant, her brother-in-law, Brandon Bryant and her beloved nephew, Joel Edward Bryant.

Gabby had Downs Syndrome and attended Greensburg Elementary School.  She enjoyed her time there with Miss Wallace, her aides, Lori, Judy, and Christy, as well as her classmates.

Gabby hah only been in Greensburg just shy of four years, but she delighted in meeting all the residents while shopping and dining out.  She never met a stranger.

Gabby’s memorial will begin at 3 p.m., Saturday, September 14, 2013, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, located at 5911 State Road 350, in Aurora. The service will be open to all of her family and friends.  Online condolences can be made to the family at www.gilliland-howe.com.
