In Loving Memory

Katelyn L. Aldridge

Katelyn Louise Aldridge, 21, a resident of Daphne, AL, passed away on Thursday, March 21, 2019.

Katelyn was a full-time student at Coastal Community College and was planning to become a nurse.  Katelyn was so much fun to be around, always making everyone laugh.  She loved having fun and always brought joy into everyone’s life.  She loved going to the beach and spending time with her friends and family every chance she got.  Her family was always her number one priority.  She was a very special person and will truly be missed by all who knew and loved her. And she is now reunited with her angel baby, who she only held in her heart for a short time, but she now holds in her arms.

Katelyn was preceded in death by her grandfather, Charles Edward Summers; and her grandmother, Geraldine Louise Aldridge; and her baby girl.

She is survived by her parents, Dennis and Tammy Aldridge; her sisters, Joyce Sarkis, Stephanie Nelson and Heather Aldridge; grandfather, Jessie Frank Aldridge; grandmother, Joyce Marie Summers; niece and nephew, Jenesis and Dominick; special friend, Dustin Foley; along with aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

    Dennis I know we’ve kind of lost contact over past few years but friendships last a lifetime. I just wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers and I can’t begin to imagine the heartache you are going through. Just remember God will never put more on us than we can handle and his plans are much greater than ours. Remember he promised you will be with her again, “for where I am there you shall be also. God bless and keep you and your family.

  5. Elizabeth Adams

  6. Doug/Sara Wilson

    Doug and I were very sorry to hear about Katelyn. I remember her smile and how busy she stayed while we were cleaning the church Tammy. Doug and I have laughed often over the years of her telling you she wouldn’t go in the nursery with me because that ‘man’ was in there(meaning Doug). We are grateful to have known her.
