Maylee Renee’ Baxter, 2, of Albion, IL, gained her wings on August 3, 2019.

She was born March 22, 2017 in Mt. Vernon, IL, the daughter of Chris and Renee Baxter.

Maylee was full of energy and always smiling. She had no fear and was a daredevil and a “monkey.” Maylee was full of sass and attitude. She was 2 with the attitude of a teenager. She never met a stranger and loved to shake hands with everyone at church or wherever she was. Maylee had a special love for babies and all animals. She loved her “Bubby” very much.

She is survived by her parents, Chris and Renee Baxter; her brother, Beau Baxter; her grandparents: Tammy and Steve Comegys and Tammy and Jimmy Dale Pringle; and her great-grandparents: Anna Baxter, Wyonetta and Jim Pringle, Bill Martin, Ray Fulkerson, and Ruth Taylor. Also surviving are many aunts, uncles, cousins, her “adopted family,” and many, many friends.

Maylee was preceded in death by her great-grandpa Chuck Baxter, great-grandma Judy Fulkerson, great-grandpa Donald Comegys, great-uncle Tommy Hill, grandpa Gary Samsil, and her puppy Missy.

Visitation will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, August 9, 2019 at the Church of Christ in Grayville, IL with the funeral service to be held at 7 p.m. at the church.

Family and friends attending the visitation are asked to bring a favorite picture, and/or a special memory to be placed into Maylee’s box. Also, in Maylee’s memory, the family requests all attendees wear bright, cheerful colors.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the family for her brother Beau’s education expenses. When choosing memorial gifts, please be aware several family members have severe allergies to living flowers.

Ingram-Meridith Funeral Home of Albion is honored to be entrusted with the arrangements.
