Kynslee Grace Hughes was born on November 30, 2018, to Michael and Savannah Hughes. She was welcomed by big sister, Larkyn, who adored her and loved to hold her hand. Kynslee was baptized on December 1, 2018, at Sanford Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD.
Kynslee was oh so sweet, yet she could be very feisty. In her very short time, she knew what she wanted and didn’t. One example in particular was her feeding tube; she loved to have a full belly yet disliked it so much that she loved to pull it out. She had many favorites which included being held and loved on by Mommy, Daddy and BIG sister, Larkyn. She also loved her paci, and if she had to be in her crib, she loved to gaze at her mobile.
Kynslee is remembered by her parents: Michael and Savannah Hughes; sister, Larkyn Mae Hughes; grandparents: Danny and Kim Carlson of Big Stone City, SD; and Jeffery and Rebecca Hughes of Big Stone City, SD; aunts and uncles: Eric (Chelsea) Carlson of Aberdeen, SD; and Pamela (Casey) Scruton of Ortonville, MN; cousins: Hunter Carlson of Aberdeen, SD; Alex and Avier Hughes, and August Scruton of Ortonville, MN.
She was preceded in death by her great-grandparents: Victor and Jennie Carlson, Dale Rieck, Earl Zempel and Lloyd Hughes.
