She was born March 25, 1997, in Overland Park, Kan., to Mark and Sandy Wretling. Mikayle was a freshman at Hays High School and completed first through eighth grade in the Abilene schools.
Mikayle was the first child in the United States to have a VP computerized shunt before it was FDA approved. Now it is commonly used. Mikayle had 30-plus brain surgeries and suffered daily chronic pain from complex medical/neuro issues. She lived her life unselfishly and donated six of her organs. Mikayle was a strong, brave young girl with incredible courage.
Survivors include two sisters, Alicia and Markala, both of Kansas City; best friend Kayla Parsons; and ‘big sister’ Carol Williams, both of Abilene.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 28, 2012, at Emmanuel United Methodist Church of Abilene, 1300 N. Pine, Abilene. The Rev. Lew Van Der Wege, Salina, and Mikayle’s father will preside. Thomas Bishop will provide music.
