Hailey Beth Kramer, 25, was gently moved from her parents loving arms into God's, on Friday December 17, 2021 in the early morning hours. She is soaring in heaven without any limitations and her voice has returned so she can speak her mind once again.
Hailey was born on March 7th, 1996, in Casper Wyoming. Hailey came into the world yelling and making all kinds of noise. She blazed the trail for her brothers, Sam and Jacob. She lived in Casper until she was six months old when her family moved to Corona, California. She was a busy, funny, smart little girl and a bit bossy to her brothers. She made it known to all that she was born first. She loved her brothers and never wanted to be "Girly" she was one of the boys. Getting Hailey to wear a dress was almost impossible because she wanted to be dressed comfortable, so she was ready for any adventure the three concocted. Soon after moving to California, Hailey and her brothers were introduced to Alma Perez. Alma moved in with the family to care for the triplets. Hailey and Alma were best of friends and had many experiences together with her brothers. Hailey loved going to Disneyland, drawing, writing, reading stories and being creative. Her love for "Ariel" was known by all and when she went to Disneyland with her Aunt Holly and Uncle Dustin for the first time, she couldn't wait to see her idol in person. Every trip to Disneyland with her annual pass she would drag Sam and Jacob to find Ariel and get her autograph and picture. In LaVerne she loved tumbling, swimming, karate, cheer, horses and school.
In 2004 Hailey's mom was offered any opportunity to relocate with her job and moved to Defiance, Missouri. Hailey loved the adventure, new house, swimming pool and new school. Horseback riding lessons was one of the conditions to "agree" to move to Missouri and finally in June 2004 she began taking horseback riding lessons at Irish Fox Stables in Wentzville and her passion finally became her reality. She loved to learn how to care for her horse Touché whose legs were as long as Hailey was tall. Her first three lessons were all about caring, cleaning and learning about her horse. She took charge and mastered the lessons quickly so she could finally get on the back of her beautiful horse. She said it was the best time of her life when she was on Touché cantering around the arena.
In June 2005 life changed drastically for Hailey and her family when she suffered a severe traumatic brain injury from a bicycle accident. Hailey was no longer the young girl she once was, and she worked hard with the help of her family and friends to create a new life for herself. Confined to a wheelchair and no longer having her voice, her family helped her find ways to communicate her needs. She attended Daniel Boone Elementary and moved on with her brothers to Frances Howell Middle School and then graduated from Frances Howell High School in 2014 alongside her brothers.
In February 2018 Hailey had the great fortune to meet the Wallach family, whose daughter Emily was a few years older than her. Emily's family built a fully accessible home for the girls to occupy and have their independence. They had amazing women who cared for all their needs 24/7. Their experiences and adventures brought much joy to their lives.
Hailey was medically fragile, and her health maintained for several years with many challenges. She fought hard to recover from pneumonia, many surgeries and years of therapies. October of 2021 began to take a toll on Hailey's health. Numerous hospital stays and brief returns to home left Hailey's body weak and she struggled to return to her base health status.
Hailey was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Roger Golden, paternal great grandparents, Eleanore and Gordon Golden; brother, James Kramer and biological father, Richard Kramer.
