Lydia Brielle Gentry

May 31, 2017 ~ August 16, 2018 (age 1)
Lydia Brielle Gentry, 14 months young, gained her angel wings, Thursday, August 16, 2018. Lydia was born on May 31, 2017, at Holston Valley Hospital in Kingsport, Tennessee. She was born a fighter who never quit. She had a personality bigger than life itself. Her little smirky mischievous grin always lit up everyone's world. She loved lying in the big bed with her daddy and would laugh when mommy would try to put her in her little bed. She loved playing with all her toys, especially her "Puppy" and her orange and purple ball. She loved sitting in her rocking chair and kicking her little feet. Lydia thought it was funny to roll around the living room floor while pulling her feeding pump with her. Any question you would ask her, she would shake her little head no and laugh. Lydia responded to many names, including Little Lydia, Princess Hoot Owl, and Louie. Little Lydia's biggest joys involved playing in the floor and watching videos with her daddy and dancing around the kitchen with her mommy while listening to "5 Little Monkeys"and "Little Shark". Lydia will always be loved and missed. Mommy and Daddy love you with all of our hearts our precious Angel baby!
She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Brenda Gentry; great-grandmother and grandfather, Virgil and Patsy Booker; great-grandmother, Joann Gentry; great-grandfather, Benny F. Salyer; great-grandmother, Charmie Lane; and first cousin, Alexis Chambers.
Lydia is survived by her loving parents, Christopher Gentry and Summer Salyer-Gentry; grandparents, Lloyd and Carolyn Booker Donnie and Matonya Brown, Benny Salyer and Lisa Renner-Salyer; great-grandparents, Rex and Brenda Stapleton; aunts and uncles, Deana, Bobbie Jo, Ashley B, Sarah, Derrick, and Ashley G; several great aunts, great uncles, and cousins; and godmother, Pamela.
Special thanks to the doctors and nursing staff at Niswonger's Children's Hospital, Cincinnati Children's Hospital, and the support and love of many special friends.
