Harlynn Wren Albert, six weeks, Bonners Ferry, passed away on December 31, 2023, in Spokane. She was born on November 13, 2023. Harlynn was a precious baby girl who brought joy to her family during her short time with them. A ceremony to celebrate Harlynn’s life will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, January 12, at Saint Ann Catholic Church, 6712 El Paso Street, Bonners Ferry.
On Christmas Eve between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., Harlynn stopped breathing. She was flown from Boundary Community Hospital to a hospital in Spokane, but the brain damage was too great.
Harlynn’s innocent eyes would light up with wonder at the sight of the sparkling holiday lights and the company of her big brother, Weston. She was a bright and lively soul who touched the hearts of those around her.
She is survived by her loving parents, Angela Bean and Joseph Albert, and her adoring brother, Weston. Harlynn will be deeply missed by her grandparents, Jill and Dave Bean, Erin Rogne and Munroe Albert, her uncle Brian Bean and her aunt Cheyann Albert. She was also cherished by her great-grandparents, Jim Neumayer, Nada and Claude Bean, Lynn Saville, and Chester Albert. Harlynn was preceded in death by her great-grandma and the keeper of rainbows, Joann Neumayer.
Bonners Ferry Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements. In this time of grief, let us remember Harlynn’s bright spirit and the joy she brought to those around her. May her memory be a source of comfort and strength for her family and friends. A GoFundMe account has been established for the family to help with medical bills and final expenses.
