Kailia Posey

Kailia Posey

Our angel, Kailia Posey, went to be with the Lord on May 2.

Kailia was born on April 19, 2006, in Las Vegas, Nevada to Marcy Gatterman.  Kailia touched the hearts of many during her short life.

Kailia is remembered for her sweet and outgoing personality, and how she cared about everyone she met. 

Kailia was passionate about performing and entertained audiences across the globe with her exuberant showmanship. She is best known by many for her years of competition in the pageant circuit, and for her stunning talent as a contortionist.

Kailia’s most recent accomplishments include competing in the Miss Teen Washington pageant in February, finishing as second runner-up, and being selected to be a football cheerleader next fall at Lynden High School.

Kailia is survived by her mother Marcy (Steve) Gatterman of Lynden; father Greg Posey of Bellingham; brothers Kyle Parker (Bonnie Messenger) of Wichita, Kansas; Kai Posey, Dane Gatterman, and Davis (Faith) Gatterman of Lynden, Nick Posey of Bellingham; grandmother Donna (Michael) Schoeller of Branson, Missouri; great-grandmother Belle Rhoads of Branson, Missouri; aunts Mary (Blair) Shields of McKinney, Texas and Georgia Luz of Branson, Missouri; and cousins Macy Luz, Landon Luz, Lola Belle Shields, and Irish Shields.

A life as amazing as Kailia’s is deserving of a special celebration. A public celebration of life will be held at North County Christ the King Church in Lynden, Washington on Saturday, May 14 at 11 a.m. 

Flowers can be sent directly to the church office at 1816 18th Street, Lynden, WA 98264.
