Keyunn Lorett Koester

Keyunn Lorett Koester (December 27, 2013-August 9, 2015) will be remembered as “a ray of sunshine” to those who knew him. His big brown eyes and sweet, yet ornery smile, could melt any heart. Keyunn was a tiny little guy with big ambitions. He loved trying to keep up with his four big brothers, farming with Daddy, and helping Mommy around the house. He was known for placing any available object on his head. And he absolutely loved baths or showers-to the point of even jumping in fully clothed or smearing food in his hair to prove he needed one. Keyunn loved to “go” with people (he never knew a stranger), but if he couldn’t he would blow you an abundance of kisses and wave with exuberance. With Keyunn’s passing we remind others that although his time on earth seemed far too short, his life is one to be celebrated, as he eternally plays at our Lord and Savior’s feet. Keyunn Lorett joins grandmother and namesake, Loretta Winchell, in heaven.
