She was the happiest, sweetest soul with lots of attitude. She was such a strong girl with everything that was thrown her way in the short amount of time we had with her. She was loved by so many and will be forever missed by those left here to enjoy her memories. She passed peacefully and surrounded by love.Ayva is survived by not only her loving parents, but her loving big sisters, Sierra, Olivia and Alayna Widner; grandparents, Roger and Angie Sharp, and Darlene Vickers; a host of aunts uncles , cousins and her “other mom” Melissa Brown and family who loved her like their own.She is preceded in death by her grandfather, Paul Vickers.We love you, Sweet Potato.A funeral service will be held on Sunday, December 31, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. at Cecil Funeral Home, with burial following at Bells Run Cemetery.
