Obituary for Kayla R. Peterson

Kayla Rachelle Peterson departed this life on January 24, 2018 at Yale New Haven Hospital in New Haven Connecticut. She was born November 22,1989 in Danbury, Connecticut.

Kayla was the only child of Doreen Peterson and resided with her in West Haven, Connecticut until recently moving to Stratford, Connecticut.

Kayla attended St. Aedan parochial elementary school in New Haven, Connecticut and then went on to attend Our Lady of Mercy Lauralton Hall in Milford, Connecticut. She attended and received her Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut. She was employed at Yale New Haven Hospital.

As a child Kayla was baptized and raised in Messiah Baptist Church in Bridgeport Connecticut where she sang in the children’s choir and was a junior usher. In recent years she was an often visitor at Christian Tabernacle Baptist Church.

An outgoing person, Kayla could make anyone laugh. She enjoyed music and dancing and had a beautiful singing voice. She loved being out with people and was available to anyone, for any reason, at any time. She loved animals and would go out of her way to advocate for their needs and well-being.
