Obituary for Alysha D. Kissinger

Alysha Darlene (Taylor) Kissinger passed unexpectedly from this life to the next on Saturday, July 20, 2019 due to a blood clot. She was born March 28, 1980 in Chatham, Ontario, moving to Michigan with her husband, Jon, in 2009.

Alysha was a stay at home mom who loved raising her children. She often told comical and poignant stories of her real-life adventures in motherhood. She spoke life into her home with words of encouragement, humor, love and kindness. Warm memories of her loving influence will remain in our hearts. She was a Christ follower, and loved the way Jesus loved through a compassionate embrace of all people.

She is survived by her loving husband of thirteen years, Jonathan, her remarkable children, Micah, 10, Noah 8, Eden 4, and Ezra 2. Also surviving are her parents: Glenn and Wendy Taylor of Windsor, Canada; her brother: Brent Taylor; her parents-in-law: Carol Brundage, Randy and Penny Kissinger; her sisters-in-law: Amie (Matt) Ras, Elizabeth (fiancée David Borchardt), Evelyn (Greg) Ondersma; her niece: Lily Ras; and her many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.

Alysha’s family will receive friends on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at Thornapple Valley Church, 2750 S. M-43 Highway, Hastings, MI 49058, where her funeral service will be conducted at 1:00 PM, Pastor Matthew VanDongen officiating. Everyone is invited to a luncheon following the service.

Alysha loved color, so feel free to wear the brightest color you have. This is a celebration of her life.
