Thalia Christlieb
Thalia Rochelle Christlieb was born sleeping on March 18, 2014, at IU Methodist Hospital at 1:10 a.m.
She is survived by her mommy, Joanie N. Christlieb, Fort Wayne, Ind.; two sisters, Briana and Adalyn Byrd, at home; grandparents, Rod "Shorty" and Jan Heiser, Rockford, and Jeff Christlieb, Fort Wayne, Ind.; uncles, Dustin Heiser, Ontario, Calif., Jeremy Heiser, Rockford, and Adam Logsdon, Fort Wayne; five great-grandparents, Joan Feichter, Rockford, Dean Feichter, Las Vegas, Carl and Evie Heiser, Greenville, and Carolyn Christlieb, Fort Wayne. She also will be missed and treasured by several great-aunts, great-uncles and many cousins.
Already awaiting her in heaven are her great grandparents, Bob and Peg Hodge, and cousins, Nicole Gall and Jacob Feichter.
As a memory of her, footprints are stamped on paper, but her treasure of life will be engraved on her family's hearts forever. Until she meets her family at the heavenly gate, she will live with them each day as they walk on earth.
A memorial service will be held at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Ketcham-Ripley Funeral Home, Rockford, the Rev. Dave Souers and Pastor Matt Rhynehart officiating.
Calling is 10 a.m. until time of services Saturday at the funeral home.
Memorials may be directed to the family.
