"Our Sweet Angel"
West Jordan, Utah-Our precious daughter, sister, and friend Sierra was tragically taken from us on June 26, 2012 in West Jordan, Utah. She was born November 8, 2005 in Salt Lake City, to Kathy and Brad Newbold.
Sierra was outgoing and made friends everywhere she went. She was eager to grow up, drive, and get her "very own" cell phone. She loved to draw and was an incredible artist at a very young age. She loved dancing, hiking, and being active. She loved life and lived it to the fullest. She was a proud member of the West Jordan Youth Soccer team "Orange Crush". She learned to read and loved reading while in kindergarten and was looking forward to starting first grade. Her best friend was her little sister, Taylor. They did everything together. She had the amazing ability to make everyone happy with her big brown eyes and her beautiful smile.
Those looking forward to seeing her again are her Mom and Dad, (Kathy and Brad), Sisters Aubrey, Jami, and Taylor, her incredible Big Brother Troy, "Stepbrother" Bobby, Grandma and Grandpa Newbold (Reed and Francis), Grandma and Grandpa Mahoney (Dan and Pat); several Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Friends. Those rejoicing with her in a sweet reunion are her Grandma Newbold (Enid), Aunt Sydni, Uncles Brian and Neal, and Cousin Heather.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday June 30, at the West Jordan 27th Ward, 2666 West 7000 South. A viewing will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, June 29th at the church as well as an hour and a half prior to services on Saturday.
The family would like to thank the outpouring of love, prayers, and support from our family, neighborhood family, and community. Sierra will leave a huge hole in the hearts of everyone who knew her. She will be deeply missed and is loved dearly by her family and friends.

There will be a celebration of Pink Cloud Cake on these special days..The void in your hearts only is for Sierra, it will never be filled with anyone but her..Her birthday will always be the same day and other holidays be shared to give a random act of kindness to another child..May she be with Josephina and friends giggling and smiling down upon your family, say I am ok..

I didn't know what to write when I first heard about Sierra. I was one of the teachers of the Jr. Jag Preschoolers. I loved seeing her playing with the other kids and watching her learn and grow. She has one of the cutest smiles ever. She touched a lot of hearts with her sweet heart. She was so friendly. I am so sorry to hear that she is no longer with you. My prayers are with your family and have been ever since I heard what happened.

I just saw the story about your daughter and the lovely tree created for her on display at the festival of lights. I didn't hear of this in June because I just had my second daughter who I feel is my sweet little angel too. Although we don't know each other I wanted to let you know my heart goes out to her parents and family. It's a blessing to be able to have and love our children, I'm sorry she was taken from you so soon.This is a beautiful message you put together about her. You will be in my prayers.

I have just found out about your precious daughter, words cannot describe how sorry I am for your loss. I also have a 6 year old child, I know that you do not know who I am, but like the rest of the world, my heart breaks for your family. I cannot imagine what you are going through and I know there are no words of comfort that can ease your pain but please know that the world grieves with you and we all love your precious Sierra.

To The Newbold Family: Words can not describe the pain that you must feel with the loss of your daughter. Tonight I had a chance to read her beautiful obituary and I couldnt stop crying. She was/is Heavenly Fathers special angel and has been embraced in his arms once again. Sierra's beautiful smile has touched so many people around the world and she will always remain in our hearts forever. I pray that your family will find peace during this difficult time and remember that you will see her again...

I wish I could fully express the saddness I feel for your family. I have 3 daughters ages 25, 18 and 9. I can't even imagine your grief. I look at my youngest girl and tears form in my eyes. I'm sure that God is weeping with you. I hope that your faith continues and that he can carry you through this. I've never met Sierra and yet she has touched my heart so. What an Angel in heaven now. Wish I could take this all away for you.

I did not know your family or daughter prior to this tragedy, but from one mother to another please know that i have prayed for you and your family each day. So many people are praying, sending you wishes of love and encouragement. There are not words that will heal this wound, there is nothing thqt will make this better or ever ok...but take some small comfort in the fact your friends, family, neighbors, community and countless strangers mourn with you at this time. May you find strength in numbers. So many families, mothers ache for are loved by so many...united by your beautiful, Sierra. What amazing parents you are to have raised such a wonderful little girl. Wishing you some small moment of peace...know you are loved by those closest to you and also by those whom you have never even seen. <3

My heart breaks and my tears flow for you all. Sierra is with Jesus and she knows how much you all hurt and miss her. Know that she has no pain or fear at all, but she is in complete joy and peace being with her Savior. We will all be praying to God to give your family the strength, day by day, to live through this tragedy. We will also pray that God would give you HIS peace and assurance of hope that you will see your sweet girl again. I truly cannot imagine what you are going through, but as a mother of three young children myself, I can sympathize and will be praying daily.

July 10, 2012
As a mother of four, I can't begin to imagine the pain you are experiencing. I'm especially hurting for little Taylor, who was fortunate to have a big sister who loved her so much. Praise God that you have a strong faith. I pray that He will give you comfort and peace that passes all understanding, and that He will hold little Taylor securely in His arms, giving her a faith that will never fail her. God bless you all.

Dear Kathy and family,
I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet Sierra. I could never imagine the pain you must be feeling. She was a gorgeous girl, and I am so thankful to have been blessed with her sweet spirit, if only for a short time, in mine and my sons life. I feel like I knew her so well, because she is all Jordan talked about since the day he met her. He loved and adored her so much! Although I'm sad for him, I appreciate the happiness and excitement she brought to his life, and I'm grateful that we were able to spend time with her recently. She will forever be in our hearts. Praying for peace and comfort for you and your family throughout this time, and always.

I am the lady who dropped in on you today and got to visit with your family. I hope that it brought you some comfort to know just how many are thinking and praying about your family and your tragic loss. No amount of words will ever be able to tell you how badly ones feel who heard about this, but as parents and grandparents we will hold our loved ones even closer and try to make them feel as safe as we can. I felt priviledged to be able to feel the strength that you have in spite of these insurmountable odds that you are all enduring. Life is sometimes short, but each day is truly a precious gift. I feel blessed today for the opportunity of meeting you. God bless you all.

We were in the West Jordan 27th ward for almost 2 years not very long ago. My husband Dallon was Sierra's CTR teacher. He was most of all shocked of Sierra's passing. I was in the sunbeams and I just want to say how much Sierra and Elle helped with our little boy Noah during class while my husband taught his lesson. Sierra was so sweet and had a natural way with kids. Newbolds know that your ward family is there for you and they are hurting and praying along with you.

We love you. We are thinking of you and praying earnestly for you. We love Sierra and will miss her. She was always willing to help in sharing time at church. I remember when Taylor was in nursery and her "big sister" Sierra would come to pick her up after church. Even though she was only a bit older, she took care of her like any big sister would. She is so beautiful. Her picture melts my heart. I know the Lord will be your strength at this time and throughout your lives until you are reunited once again. May the Spirit be your constant companion, providing you peace and comfort knowing where Sierra is, and that she is with you forever. Please know we are here when you want us and need us. With so much love,
