Haley Noel Kinzel, 13, a resident of Fort Myers, FL for the past 12 years, formerly of Bethlehem, PA, passed away Tuesday, April 2, 2019 in Fort Myers. She was born May 14, 2005 in Allentown, PA.
Haley was an exuberant soul. She was a great swimmer, could paddle board, and loved to color in her coloring books from Japan. She enjoyed spending most of her time playing osu online with her friends Mel and Catie Jimenez of Chicago, IL. She spent time at the beach, our community pool, and theme parks in Orlando. Her favorite parks were Epcot, Aquatica, and the Legoland hotel. We traveled every summer to Ohio to visit family and lots of cousins. Recently, Haley enjoyed time at Oglebay Park in WV, rode the Duquesne incline in Pittsburgh, visited NYC, Washington DC, Murrells Inlet, and St. Augustine, FL. Haley took many trips over the last few months. We swam with dolphins in Key Largo, attended a Disney Christmas party, went to Halloween Horror Nights, visited some sights from the series Stranger Things, took a trip to visit her friends in Chicago, and enjoyed some beach days in Sanibel. She was able to enjoy most of her favorite foods such as turkey, mashed potatoes, and noodles, salted caramel blizzards from DQ, Panera Mac and cheese, and peaches.
Haley attended Crown of Life preschool, Rayma C page elementary, and Lee County Virtual Homeschool. Haley was given the best possible care at St. Jude’s children’s hospital in Memphis, TN. She was surrounded by a caring team while hospitalized there for two months. Luckily, Haley was able to get home where she could find comfort in her own room, surrounded by her favorite things and people that loved her.
Haley is survived by her loving parents, Leonard and Kristin Kinzel of Fort Myers; three loving siblings, Ethan Kinzel, Chloe Kinzel, and Cole Kinzel, all of Fort Myers; her grandparents, Steve and Diana Husk, Carrie and Ron Ammon, and Mike and Crystal Kinzel; as well as many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.
