Kenna Jayne Poor, age 4 of Rockport, Illinois received her angel wings on Saturday morning, September 21, 2019.  Kenna Jayne was born to Ethan and Cody (Herald) Poor on May 29, 2015 in Quincy, Illinois.

Kenna Jayne was a girly girl and a tomboy all rolled up into one beautiful soul.  She was a sweet soft-spoken little girl with dimples that always made the world around her smile.  She always told everyone she loved them.  Her best friend was her brother, Kayse who she lovingly called Bubba.  They were inseparable, they were home-schooled together and enjoyed rock hunting together along with swimming, swinging and jumping on the trampoline.  Kenna Jayne loved princess dresses and shoes and she enjoyed having tea parties.  She loved her baby dolls, Barbies and trolls.  Kenna Jayne was a busy little girl who loved to help cook in the kitchen, playing dress up and putting on makeup, enjoyed sticker books and puzzles and loved school and learning the alphabet.  Kenna Jayne was always ready for sleepovers at her grandparents and great-grandparents houses.  

She was a dancer and tumbler, attending the All About Dance and More in Mt. Sterling, Illinois.  Kenna Jayne played soccer and was a member of the Pike County Soccer League.  Her mom was her coach and she loved her teammates.  Kenna Jayne was always ready to ride on the tractor with her Papaw.  She always had a super fun time Jeepin with her dad.  She loved the bouncing, the loud noise and she loved to go fast.  

Kenna Jayne especially loved her pink blanket, aka “pink aww”, watching her TabTab and her BunBun and all her stuffed animals.  She also loved to sing and her favorite song was “You Are My Sunshine”.

She is lovingly survived by her parents, Ethan and Cody Poor and brother, Kayse Poor of Rockport, Illinois.  Grandparents; Beverly and Dusty Poor of Rockport, Illinois and Jay and Tammy Herald of Mt. Sterling, Illinois.  Great grandparents; Raymond and Joan Moffit of Nebo, Illinois, Jack and Marcella Herald of Mt. Sterling, Illinois and Gloria Fry of Mt. Sterling, Illinois.  Aunts and uncles; Godparents Jesse (Rachel) Poor of Pittsfield, Illinois, Kris (Brandon Lyons) Herald of Mt. Sterling, Illinois and Dalton Heightman of Pittsfield, Illinois.  Great aunts and uncles; Sherry Herald of Mt. Sterling, Illinois, Tamara (Lee) Ator of New Canton, Illinois, Gayla (Ron) Combs of New Hartford, Illinois, Curt (Missy) Moffit of Milton, Illinois, Jeff (Ann) Moffit of Pittsfield, Illinois,  Shelly (Todd) Claxton of Hinkley, Illinois, Diana Coulter of Springfield, Illinois and Mike (Donna) Fry of Dyersburg, Tennessee. Several great-great aunts and uncles and numerous cousins also survive.

Kenna Jayne was preceded in death by her great grandparents Jim and Dixie Poor, great grandfather John Fry and great-great grandmother Louise Thrasher.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 11:00 AM at Niebur Funeral Home in Pittsfield.  Interment will follow at Samuel Taylor Cemetery in Rockport.  Visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the funeral home.  Memorials are suggested to be made to the Educational Fund for Kayse Poor.  Online condolences may be left to the family at  Niebur Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

I myself lost a child and I know the pain in indescribable right now. What i clung to was the thought that "he picks the fairest flowers for his garden", and that my son was safe in the arms of Jesus. My prayers are with you even though we have not met.

Ethan, I am so sorry to learn of this tragedy. It sounds like you had a very fun-loving little girl of whom I am sure you are very proud. I bet you were a terrific dad to Kenna and that Jesse was a great uncle. Treasure the wonderful memories of Kenna and hold little Kayse a little longer in her memory. Blessings and Prayers, Kay Sealock

I am from Virginia. I do not know your family personally. There was a beautiful story shared on Facebook in one of the Jeep groups and it brought tears to my eyes. One can only imagine how hard this is for you. I for one am so sorry for loss. She was a beautiful child and from all that I read She was a beautiful soul. May god be with you in this extremely difficult time. And know that Us fellow Jeepers are out here praying for you!

I was very sorry to hear about your terrible loss. Words are poor substitutes when we suffer the loss of a loved one. Still I want to convey my desire, however inadequate, to offer consolation. Please accept my deepest sympathy for you and your family.
