Bailey Shannon Michelle Williams passed away at her home in Yoder, Wyoming on June 14 surrounded by her family and loved ones. Bailey was a strong, brave and sassy young woman who was awesome at life. She was close to her family but had an especially close bond with her older brother Nick, who was her best friend. Bailey loved her dogs Tucker and Maggie, shopping, and traveling. She graduated from Torrington High School in May of 2017 with not only her high school diploma but a CNA certification. After high school she moved to Ft. Collins, Colo. where she planned to get her state residency and attend CSU.
Bailey was born March 11, 1998 in Laramie to Laticia (Jamie) Gibb and Gregory (Susan) Williams. When Bailey was three months old she had a heart transplant and a second one during her senior year of high school. Bailey never let her health conditions limit the way she lived her life. She traveled to Jamaica, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico and all over the United States. During her final months Bailey's friends helped her to complete her bucket list. Bailey traveled to San Diego to see the ocean and went to Las Vegas where she got to meet Celine Dion which she described as the "best day of her life."
Bailey will be deeply missed by her parents, siblings Nicholas Williams, Ashlee Rooks, Charley Gibb, Dalton Gibb and Cayley Gibb, grandparents John and Sharon Anderson, John and Peggy Gibb, and Bill and Bonnie Kruse.
