Daisy May Hader

GREAT FALLS —Daisy May Hader, 8, of Great Falls, earned her wings on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at Seattle Children's Hospital in Seattle, WA after a long hard battle with a very rare disease that caused lung and heart failure. She was surrounded by her family and all the love this world could hold.

Daisy made her grand entrance into this world on February 15, 2008 to Justin, Lolly and big sister, Riley Hader. She attended St. Thomas Child and Family Center and then school at Sunnyside Elementary, where she was in the 3rd grade.

She loved so many things in her short life, but none more than her big sister, Riley. She loved her family, green blankie, Nala and Simba stuffies, her Aunties, and had an especially close bond with her Auntie Polly, playing with her cousins, her friends, My Little Ponies, especially Rainbow Dash, Batman and Robin, DC Superhero Girls, her little Care Bears, babies, kittens, Ramen Noodles, the cabin at Lincoln, Amazon, art, all animals, big eyed stuffies, Pegasys unicorn, music, movies and TV, Toys R Us, the Disney Store, Bean Boozled, the basement at home, parties of any kind, games, Christmas, Halloween, Clamato Juice, her PJ's, swinging, M&M's, Legos, gummy worms, snuggles, sleeping in the middle, popcorn, Smartphones, her I-Pad, McDonalds, chicken broth, white Gatorade, Doritos, Green Bay Packers and MSU Bobcats.

Daisy had a unique way of lighting up any room she was in. Her witty, spunky character was not typical for a child her age. You never knew what she might say at any given moment and she said whatever was on her mind. She was sweet, sassy, sarcastic and funny all at the same time! She had a passion for life and a million different facial expressions to go with it. Daisy was our princess pirate warrior with a huge spirit that couldn't be contained in her little body. She fought this illness like no child should have had to, and she was so brave just like a super hero.

Daisy has been making the most fabulous rainbows in the sky, letting us know she is now in a magical place at peace. She will be missed every second of every day. Heaven gained an angel like no other. Mommy, Daddy and RiRi love you so much and can't wait until our beautiful family will be together again.

Daisy is survived by her parents; sister Riley; grandparents Frank and Jeannie Pearson, Kathleen Anderson, and Jamie and Lee Beck; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Larry Hader.

Visitation will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, October 14, 2016 at O'Connor Funeral Home Memorial Chapel. A celebration of Daisy's life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at O'Connor Funeral Home Memorial Chapel. Burial will follow at Highland Cemetery. Schnider Funeral Home is handling arrangements.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Sunnyside Elementary, PTA/Playground Equipment, 1800 19th St. S., Great Falls, MT 59405.

We were very sorry to hear of Daisy's passing. We didn't know her but heard a great deal about her from Holly & Nels, friends of my brother, Dick Brown. You are right about another angel now in heaven which answers a lot of prayers from us & many others. May God bless you & keep his face to shine upon you & give you peace. He knows about your devotion & love for Daisy.

Lolly, Justin, Riley, and Polly... Daisy is one of those kids I will never forget. I'm sorry I missed your last few days at the hospital, but know I feel truly blessed to have known all of you, especially sassy Miss Daisy. I think of all of you often, and Ellis will know of his friend Daisy, who gave him "Giraffy," and who woke him up every day while he was sleeping comfortably in the womb :) Lots of hugs,
Shannon, Jeff, and Ellis Wilcox
