Kaylin Jo Roggenbuck

March 13, 1997 — January 27, 2017

Kaylin Jo Roggenbuck, devoted daughter, loving sister, and a genuine friend, age 19 of Harbor Beach, MI began her new journey as a guardian angel on January 27th, 2017, due to injuries sustained in a car accident. Kaylin was born March 13th, 1997. She graduated from Harbor Beach High School in 2015. She was attending Grand Rapids Community College while also working at MVP Kids Spot in Rockford, MI residing with her sister. Kaylin was planning to continue her education in Diagnostic Sonography. Family was everything to Kaylin. She especially enjoyed spending time with her nieces and nephews whether she was reading books to them, holding their hands until they fell asleep, playing with toy tractors on the floor, watching Disney movies, swimming, and soothing them when they were sad. Kaylin was a proud Godmother to her nephew Liam Roggenbuck and niece Isla McCarthy. Kaylin’s heart was her compass throughout her life and wanted everyone to feel beautiful and loved. She was the first to give a smile with a sparkle in her eye to a friend or a stranger and the first to give a sincere compliment or a helping hand. Kaylin had a passionate love of music, enjoyed making friendship bracelets, taking walks with family, reading, and jet-skiing. Kaylin had an infectious smile, a bubbly personality, and a giggle that lifted others spirits around her. Kaylin was proud to be an organ donor and her wishes were honored by her family. Kaylin is survived by her mother, Mary Jo Roggenbuck of Bad Axe; father and step-mother, Larry Roggenbuck and Shelly Booms of Harbor Beach; brother and sister-in-law, Jonathon and Michele Roggenbuck; nieces and nephews, Savana, Peyton, Sydney, Xander, and Liam; sister and brother-in-law, Nicole and Jon McCarthy; nieces and nephew, Scarlett, Henry, and Isla; brother and sister-in-law, Jason and Kristin Roggenbuck; nephews, Connor and Nolan; brother, Jacob Roggenbuck; sister, Malia Roggenbuck; step-brothers, Cody and Derek Booms; and step-sisters, Nicole and Alicia Booms; grandparents, Shirley Guza, and William and Rosemary Roggenbuck; Godparents, Terry and Jean Guza; and many other beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins. Kaylin will be joining her grandfather, Cletus Guza, and her uncle, Randy Roggenbuck in Heaven. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated for Kaylin at 11:00 am Thursday, February 2 at Our Lady of Lake Huron Catholic Church, Holy Name of Mary Parish of Harbor Beach. Rev.
