Leela Raey Hoogstad, 1 month, 1 week and 4 days old, passed away in Springfield, Oregon, on Nov. 28, 2019.
Leela was born on Oct.17, 2019 to Rachel Eckstine and Jan (J.R.) Hoogstad in Springfield.
Leela was her mom and dad’s little wiggle worm and her favorite place was in her parents’ arms. It is a great loss that our beautiful princess was called home too soon. Dear, sweet baby girl, please know that our greatest blessing was having you.
Leela is now being watched over in heaven by Uncle Timothy Eckstine, and great-grandparents Ken and Norma Hoehn, Jan and Vera Hoogstad and Richard Plowman.
Layla will always be loved and remembered by parents Rachel and Jan; great-grandparents, Jim and Lucy Eckstine and great-grammy Alice Plowman; grandparents Paul and Denise Eckstine and Jan and Kerry Hoogstad; uncles and aunts Jeremie (Jakelen) Eckstine, Matthew (María) Eckstine, Sarah (Evan) Pope, Thomas Eckstine, Amber (Jyreme) Hewitt, Mary (Darrion) Wells, Blake Hoogstad and Jade Hoogstad; and numerous cousins.
A celebration for Leela will be held in the spring of 2020. A memorial fund for the family has been set up with Northwest Community Credit Union in Cottage Grove. For more information please contact Denise Eckstine or Sara Pope.
