Tarae Patricia Bryant, age 5 months, passed away at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, IL, joining the Angels in Heaven, on Friday, July 10, 2009.
Patti was born in Racine on February 13, 2009, to Tarance Leroy Bryant and Melissa Renee Stewart. She was a true soldier in the fight for her life and gave us a lifetime of memories in the short time she was here on Earth.
Surviving are her broken-hearted parents, Tarance and Melissa; sisters, Jordann and Yazmyne; brother, Tra’mon; grandparents, Dorothy Lee, Carl Stewart, Lorna Prather and Leroy Bryant; great-grandparents, Eliza Woods, Effie Lacy and Willie Prather; special aunt, Michelle Stewart; great-aunts, Patricia Clark and Claudette Woods; great-great-aunt, Mittie Mayfield; and cousins, Dorian Clark, Coretta Malone, Kamari McGee, Lonnie Woods Jr. and Mikyla Clark; and a host of other dear family members and friends too numerous to mention by name. Tarae was preceded in death by great-grandparents, Joseph Woods and Evelyn Brown.
Homegoing Services will be held in the Draeger-Langendorf Funeral Home on Thursday, July 16, 2009, at 11 a.m. with Bishop Lawrence L. Kirby officiating. Interment will follow in Graceland Cemetery. Visitation will be in the funeral home on Thursday from 10-11 a.m.
Special thanks to the dedicated NICU staff at All Saints and Lutheran General for the compassionate care and support given to our precious angel and to our family.
“Life isn’t measured by the number of breaths we take….but by the moments that take our breath away! We love you Patti!
