Abigail Whitford

Abigail Whitford

 

Abigail Rose Whitford, 10, of Bellevue, NE, was pronounced dead on Thurs, August 22, 2019 of severe brain trauma after being struck by a car in a crosswalk. 

She attended Trumble Park Elementary in Papillon and loved reading, art and math. She delighted in simple moments, made friends easily and was becoming a mature young lady while being unapologetically herself. Her kindness and spark will live on because Abby donated her organs.

Abby was welcomed to her heavenly home by great-grandparents Harold "Jake" and Leola Baker; Mildred Reinig; Floyd and Faye Neal; Floyd, Jewel, and Clara Whitford; and great-uncles Bob Gaeta and Wendell Whitford.
