Our Beloved, Kolby Nicole Moyer, age 20, of Gaylord, unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, February 13, 2022.
She was born to Nicholas and Kymberly Moyer, on May 27, 2001, in Englewood, Colorado.
Kolby was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary personality. Her sweet innocence and laughter could brighten any dismal place, and those who knew her, as her family and friends knew her, knew her as a mediator of sorts… “The Peace Maker”, always trying to be the person who helped others; console them when broken-hearted, laugh and cry with them, even at the expense of herself. Kolby was a very giving person and would truly suffer inside when one of her friends or family members was going through difficult times.
The driving force behind the beautiful soul of our sweet little Kolby was the mountains of Colorado and Utah. They tamed her spirit, both of which she often scaled with ropes and cleats. The Colorado River flowed through her veins. She often slept under the stars to take in the great expanse with her beautiful eyes. Her deep love for music inspired her to join band and take up the clarinet and the bass clarinet. Kolby was inspired by her music teacher and mentor, Mr. Hotelling, of whom she loved and respected deeply, and she excelled. Laughter prevailed when we attended her concerts because one of the instruments she played was unusually large next to her tiny frame. Memories of watching her grow up will forever fill our hearts and her genuine laughter will forever echo through the annals of time.
Although our Kolby was only on this earth for a very short while, she left an indelible mark on every person that she met; ridiculously funny, oddly inappropriate, mischievous to a fault, and a smile that could light up heaven.
Kolby was truly a loving mother to her pet snakes and bearded dragons, she was a graduate with honors from Gaylord High School in 2019, she was beautiful, intelligent, down to earth, and a girl who lived for others. Our “PERFECTLY IMPERFECT” Kolby will be sorely missed, but her star will burn bright for eternity.
