Jessica Mae Easley was granted her angel wings on October 13, 2009. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends who Jessica had touched in some way throughout her incredible and memorable life.
Jessica’s life would seem too short for many, but those who knew her understood that quality far exceeded quantity of existence. Her gentle smile, giving nature, and robust energy brought much joy to everyone she met; she never met a stranger. Jessica was always happy despite her struggles and pain, and each day was an adventure in discovery.
While she battled cancer, she remained courageous and brave, gave us hope and reminded us how precious life truly is. She found joy, love, and laughter in every waking moment and was quick to share her exuberance for life with others. She was an unselfish child who gave freely of all she had, material or spiritual. She had a great love for all God’s creations, with a particular fondness for animals of all kinds. She loved planting flowers and tending her garden. Jessica loved the great outdoors; camping, hunting and fishing. She enjoyed softball, basketball, and her favorite was swimming. Jessica could spend all day playing croquet in the yard; or hours with her beloved pets, dog Leeroy and horse Twister. She especially enjoyed music and quality time with friends and family. She remained faithful and praised God, for each day was a blessing. Jessica will be greatly missed as she is loved by many.
She is survived by her parents, Teresa Biggs Radke and Daniel Moore of Shirley, Ark.; one sister, Katie Treuter of Shirley, Ark.; a brother, Mike Radke of Luck, Wisconsin; grandfather, Allen Biggs; grandmother, Pamela McAnally; aunts and uncles, Tim and Sherry Biggs, Tracy and Dennis Bracey; cousins, Neana Riedy, Stevie Beyers, Nicky Beyers and Reece Bracey and a host of loving relatives and close friends as well as a very large extended family.
