Mya Nicole Marie Baxter, 8, of North Powder, died Dec. 3, 2007, at her home.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 10 at the Faith Center, 10300 South D St. in Island City. Loveland Funeral Chapel and Crematory is handling arrangements.

Mya was born April 29, 1999, in Portland. Starting out weak in life, she soon became a strong, beautiful little girl.

She had many favorite sayings, which made most people smile. Almost always full of joy, she attended Central Elementary School. Giving was one of her best features, as hugs were always plentiful. She loved music and dance, with going to church her favorite. She enjoyed camping trips, her cat, and spending time with her friend, Sha.

She is survived by much family, including her Mom and her “Daddy” Ryan and Tina Baxter of North Powder; stepbrother Jesse of North Powder; grandparents, including Russ and Brenda Hiller of Milton-Freewater, Bill and Janet Pierce of Baker City, Ron and Linda Newton of La Grande, Gary and Bonnie Baxter of Baker City, Eddie Knukles of Redmond, and her very close “Gram,” Dana Gunter of La Grande.

She is also survived by her great-grandmothers, Pat Hiller of McMinnville and Elsie Butler of Baker City.

She will always be loved, sadly missed, and never forgotten.

Donations can be made to Sterling Savings Bank, where a memorial fund has been set up in Mya’s name.
