July 15, 1989 - July 17, 2019
Our sweet daughter, mother, wife, sister and friend lost her health battle on Wednesday, July 17th. Kayleigh fought valiantly with complications related to Ulcerative Colitis, with a particularly difficult last few months. Ultimately, a kidney infection that was resistant to antibiotics lead to organ failure. Kayleigh was born in Rochester, New York on July 15, 1989. As a child, she loved to dance and was enrolled Strallys School of Dance in Waterloo, New York. She also loved camping with her family and friends. She swam competitively and sang in the Geneva Choir at Geneva High School. She was also involved in the Drama department there and graduated in 2007. While attending community college, she met missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in a grocery store and she shortly started studying with them. She was drawn to the gospel of Christ and was impressed by the members who treated each other the way she imagined Christ would. She ultimately decided to accept the challenge to be baptized In Christ’s name on April 3, 2010. She moved to Orem, Utah in the fall of 2013. A few months later she met her future husband, Tracy Hall at the apartment complex where Tracy was moving in. Tracy remembers her wearing an emerald green and black sequined dress. She was working on a computer in the apartment as Tracy brought boxes in. Something went wrong and she vented her frustration in Japanese which caught Tracy’s ear since he had learned an Asian language on his LDS mission, and they were soon spending lots of time together. Kayleigh had an upbeat attitude and contagious laugh. Before long, they were engaged and married in the Mount Timpanogos, Utah Temple on October 10, 2014. After a difficult pregnancy, Aurorianna (Rori) was born on February 26, 2016. She was the light of Kayleigh’s eye. Kayleigh often told people that Rori was the person who kept her going through her numerous health challenges and being a mother was her proudest achievement in life. She took special care with Rori’s hair which was brushed and braided to perfection. Kayleigh was especially adored by her nieces because she often gave them small homemade jewelry, hugs, and a listening ear. Kayleigh loved working as a customer and merchant service representative. She had a way with words that made people at ease who spoke with her on the phone. She loved feeling useful and appreciated at work. Kayleigh is survived by her husband Tracy and daughter, Aurorianna (3), parents Dru-Anne and Matt Hartley, sister Cassie Richards and brother-in-law Matt Richards, sister Zo Hartley, grandparents Shirley and Bob Catlin, grandparents Dan and Mary Egburtson, friends Melissa and Anthony Prescher, parents-in-law Winthrop and Patricia Hall, brothers-in-law William and Christian, sisters-in-law Camilla (D) Millar and Erin (Philip) Lewis, and nieces and nephews Davis, Eliza, Roger, Reed, Constance, Cecily, Calvin and Clark. A viewing will be held on Thursday, July 25 from 9:00-10:00 A.M. at the Village Way Chapel, 901 Village Way, Alpine, UT, 84004 followed by a graveside service at the Alpine Cemetery.
