Kinsley Reese Sandvik
June 21, 2011- February 14, 2020
Kinsley Reese Sandvik “our forever valentine” age 8 passed on February 14, 2020 from an unexpected illness. She was born a ball of fire on the first day of summer June 21, 2011 and has been running ever since. She exuded a confidence most would only dream of, people flocked to her, she was beautiful. She had “it” whatever “it” was. Her laugh was contagious, and her personality was infectious. To Kinsley no one was a stranger not even the pizza man, although it was scary sometimes it was also endearing in the sweet innocent way, she believed the good in people. She was a spit fire and it can be assured she wouldn’t take nothing off anyone and would let you know how she feels about what you’re doing or what you are wearing. She had style, her own style, sporty but girly. A soccer player with press on nails. She was tiny but mighty and she loved her sisters and had their backs, against everything or anyone. She was Ford’s protector, sometimes even from mom and dad. Ford and she played and ran for hours around our house doing anything he wanted to do. She loved him something fierce and he loved her in return. On the soccer field at age 4 she fell in love and after every goal she looked directly to find her parents to make sure they saw it and were cheering her on. She was a hard worker, always did her best and always had a smile on her face. She made everyone laugh without even trying, but she was the only person who could pluck every nerve you have in the same sentence. She was survived by her parents Jordan and Shannon Sandvik, her siblings Emmry, Ava, Rylan and Ford, her grandparents, Donna and Greg Ferguson, Kathy and Richard Matzel, Steve and Dawn Sandvik and Ricky and Maryanne Nichols as well as her God mother Shaina Warring. She will be greatly missed by everyone that knew her and even ones that didn’t. We all know this was Kinsley’s world and we were just living in it.
