RIKKI ELAINE MCELROY Rikki Elaine McElroy, born July 18, 2006, passed away May 29, 2012 surrounded by her parents, Ricardo McElroy, Crystal Watters and her sister Samantha Watters. Rikki lived life every day fast and hard, as if it were her last. She embraced each day full of joy, energy and enthusiasm for the things she loved and the people she loved more. Some of her favorite playtimes would include a trip to Chuck E Cheese, Hesperia Lakes, Burger King Playhouse or playing at the mall play area. If she wasn't there with her family, she could be found watching scary movies, playing in the pool, riding her bike or simply hanging out with the people that loved her. Rikki was an incredibly loving little girl. She was energetic, funny, but mostly...purple-licious! That would make her delicious, luscious and that she had a love for the color purple. For being so young, Rikki was courageous beyond her years. She was an incredibly resilient fighter who endured 5 brain surgeries, multitudes of radiation treatments, and countless amounts of chemotherapy without hardly uttering a complaint. After a difficult battle, her little body couldn't fight anymore and succumbed to brain cancer. Heaven inherited an angel the moment you left us. "Bobo", we love you and will miss you. You will be forever in our hearts and will never be forgotten. We hope you are living it up in heaven in a body that won't give out. Rikki leaves behind her parents, Ricardo McElroy, Crystal Watters, her sister Samantha Watters and many family members. Services will be held at Sunset Hills Mortuary, Apple Valley, Ca, Saturday, June 9, 2012. There will be a viewing from 1-3 p.m., with the funeral immediately following. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made on behalf of Rikki at hdphoenixfoundation.com. Sunset Hills Memorial Park and Mortuary is handling the arrangements.
