Kayla was born in Coupeville, Washington on January 8, 1992 to Brigid Delaney and Jay Kohl.  At a young age, she moved to Sioux City, Iowa with her mother and her two older siblings, Megan and Matthew.  She looked up to both of them and loved being their younger, annoying, lovable sister.  She enjoyed the times when she was able to visit her father, stepmother Tonia, and her two younger siblings Jacob and Aspen.

Her younger days were filled with many different activities, including an attempt at soccer and did great as long as she wasn’t the goalie.  She was like a fish in the water though and spent many days swimming at Grandma and Grandpa Delaney’s house.  She also discovered that she was gifted with a unique artistic, musical and creative personality. We like to think that it is because she shared a birthday with Elvis.  She did perform in a couple of plays at the Sioux City Community theater, with one being the Wizard of Oz.  She attended Sioux City Schools through her Junior year and earned her High School Diploma from Munford High School in Tennessee, Class of 2010.   As she grew older, she was a lover of all kinds of music and attended concerts any chance that she could.  She was a huge lover of animals and had two cats, Norma and Remington, that she loved dearly.  She enjoyed being a cat momma and looked forward to when she could stay home and spend time cuddling with them. She loved nature, hiking and camping.  She would tent camp with her mother but still made sure there was some glamping involved.  She whipped up a mean Eggs Benedict that made all the other campers jealous.

Kayla was a free spirit with a kind soul that shined through her and brought light to every room she entered.  When she was happy, others could see it not just by her smile but also with the brightness in her eyes.   She had a very big, empathetic heart and loved unconditionally.  She worked in the restaurant industry and enjoyed being in that field as she loved being able to communicate and connect with everyone she encountered.  She was lucky to develop many close friendships along the way and valued the time that she could spend with her friends and family.

She loved anything vintage. She was excited when she found a new unique piece of clothing to add to her wardrobe.  She had a record player and albums which had belonged to her Grandma and she continued to add to that collection. 

The memories of her will forever remain with us and she will have an eternal place in our hearts.

Kayla is survived by her mother Brigid Delaney; father Jay Kohl (Tonia); Siblings Megan (Lance) Whitcomb, Matt (Amber) Dickman, Kathy Kohl, James (Katie) Kohl, Jacob (Heather) Kohl, and Aspen Kohl; Grandparents James Kohl and Jill (Larry) Babcock; and many loving Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces and Nephews.

She is preceded in death by her Grandparents Dave and Peggy Delaney.
