Lily Josephine Elsenpeter

Sept. 23, 2013

Lily Josephine Elsenpeter first made her presence known to her mother, then her father, early in the month of January 2013. At five weeks in the womb, the first sound of her strong heartbeat was heard by her mother. At 14 weeks in the womb we joyfully shared the news of her little life with her four older brothers. Excitement and anticipation continued at 21 weeks in the womb when we discovered the hidden truth that this little Elsenpeter was to be a girl! For five more months in the womb, Lily lived her precious life, slowly making herself known and loved by family and strangers alike.

At Physicians Regional Medical Center in Naples, Fla., on Sept. 23, 2013, Lily Josephine was born into the world beautiful and perfect, but with no heartbeat. Prior to her birth, she entered the Eternal Kingdom of Heaven to join her Creator and Savior and her three miscarried siblings, Crystal, Bridger and Sadies.

She leaves on Earth her family, J.P. and Jo-C, Sebastian, Tristan, Anthony and John Paul. Her maternal grandmother, Bev Corr-Higdem. Her maternal grandfather, Van Corr, who holds Lily in his arms in Heaven. Her paternal grandparents, John and Vicki Elsenpeter. Her maternal great-grandmother, LaJune Godbersen. Lily leaves behind so many cousins, aunts, uncles and loved ones.

Lily was baptized Sept. 23 and was given a Funeral Mass on Sept. 28, 2013, at San Marco Catholic Church on Marco Island, Fla.
