Baby Neve Beisel passed away in her sleep on Thursday, Aug. 8, her mother Whitney Kendrick said on Facebook.

Neve spent most of her short life in the hospital as she experienced difficulties breathing and eating.

She had been at home in Revelstoke for five days when she passed away.

The community rallied to support her and her family as they spent months traveling between Revelstoke and Vancouver Children’s Hospital. A fundraiser held last month raised $8,500 for the family.

The family will be scattering her ashes at the top of Mount Mackenzie on Friday, Aug. 16. A memorial reception will be held at the mid-mountain lodge at Revelstoke Mountain Resort afterwards from 5–8 p.m.

The family is asking people to send donations to Trees for Tots in lieu of flowers.
