Elisha Elaine Kudrna 04/19/1994 ~ 11/12/2014


Dear NNPDF Families and Friends,

It is with heavy hearts that the NNPDF central office notify the foundation membership of Elisha Elaine Kudrna’s passing. Daughter of Jeff & Monica Kudrna of American Canyon, California & beloved sister to Daniel. Elisha lost her battle with Niemann-Pick type A/B on November 12th, 2014. She passed away at home, surrounded by her family at the age of 20.

Elisha’s mother, Monica, wrote to us in memory of her beautiful daughter, as well as, the poem included in the attached image:

“She was a bright star in our family, and now she shines eternally in heaven.

She endured so many obstacles in her life, but none of them did she not conquer without a smile. With our faith in God, we know that Elisha had a full purpose in this life, and she is now in heaven with a healed body, dancing and singing loudly. As we miss her with aching hearts every day, we are reassured that we will see her again.” 

Our loving support and hearts go out to the Kudrna family as they move ahead without their beloved daughter and sister at their side. Please know that your NPD family and community grieves with you ~ and ~ will be keeping all who loved Elisha and held her dear, in our thoughts and hearts in the days, weeks and months ahead.
