Mikko Jay Bohney, 10 months, of Idaho Falls, passed away Wednesday, July 30, 2014, at her home.
On July 30, 2014, our precious little angel flew back to heaven. Mikko Jay Bohney was born Sept. 9, 2013, in Idaho Falls, to her loving parents, Christopher Anthony Bohney and Tawnie Nichole Hardin.
She was a beautiful, happy baby with big brown eyes, and a never-ending smile. Mikko loved her Walley, and the rest of the world disappeared while she was watching it. Mikko was loved by all, and her infectious joy touched everyone she was around. She loved to watch the moon and stars with her mommy and daddy. She loved animals, and was looking forward to her first horse ride. She loved her dog, Zoe, and her best friend, her cat, Mickey Mouse. She loved to go fishing with her parents and would laugh and giggle while they reeled one in. She always welcomed company with a smile, a hug, and sometimes she would even tell you a story.
On hot days, she enjoyed splashing and playing in her pool. She was very photogenic and liked to have her picture taken, recently flashing her new teeth for the camera. She also enjoyed taking pictures of everyone else with her toy camera. The night before she came into the world, there was a double rainbow over Mountain View Hospital, God's promise that this special gift was on her way.
Words cannot express how deeply she will be missed by every heart she touched and every life she changed.
Mikko is survived by her loving parents, Chris and Tawnie of Idaho Falls; aunts, Jayd Plush and Madisen Zentner, both of Idaho Falls; uncle, Cody Robertson of LaGrande, Ore.; grandmother, Julie Plush of Idaho Falls; grandmother, Debbie Zentner of Helena, Mont.; grandparents, Blaine and Krickett Hardin of Blackfoot; great-grandmother, Judy Webster of Shelley; great-grandmother, Alice Blang of Blackfoot; and great-grandfather, Ralph Hardin of Blackfoot.
She was preceded in death by her great-grandfathers, Richard Blang and Larry Webster; and her great-grandmothers, Jeanine Hardin and Iris Hobley.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 4, at Wood Funeral Home, 273 N. Ridge Ave. in Idaho Falls. The family will visit with friends Monday from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. at the funeral home. Burial will be in Rose Hill Cemetery.
