Izzabelle Lee was born May 2, 2009 in Baker City to Jeffrey Lee Barnett and Jessica Lee Eastland.
“You are daddy’s girl and mommy’s whole world. Our precious little angel. Every morning you would greet us with a huge smile, a few good stretches, and then you were ready for your day. You were the happiest baby anyone had ever seen. When you were first born every person who saw you instantly fell in love. However, mommy and daddy felt a love a thousand times more. Everyone always said, ‘She is so precious, absolutely beautiful, perfect,’ and, ‘look at that hair!’ We will always remember your soft black hair, your bright blue eyes that smiled, your little birthmark, your soft dark skin, cute little hands and feet, your laugh, your coos, your huge smile that could light up a room. You were my darling little angel, oobi, izzy, Tinkerbelle, my Izzabeel. We will always remember you. No memory will ever fade, not even your cry until the day I die.”
She is survived by her parents Jeff Barnett and Jessica Eastland; grandparents Anna Eastland, Mark Eastland and April and Mike Whitebread; great-grandparents Dorothy and Terry Karp; uncles: Robby Backlund, Jacob Eastland and James Whitebread; aunts: Cristy Baird, Briann Eastland, Ashley Barnett and Savannah Whitebread; cousins: Destiny, Kadin, Cierra, Lillyan and Braiden; and many more loving family members.
