Corban Lucas Lacey, son of Paul Lacey and Rachel Miketa Lacey, brother to Isaac Lacey, passed peacefully in the arms of his loving family after spending more than a glorious hour together. He was born 5 lbs. 2 oz. and 17&#189; inches at 5:50 p.m. on March 7, 2012 at North Valley Hospital in Tonasket, Washington.
Corban’s parents learned of his neurological condition at 19 weeks gestation and then spent the next five months watching him grow, enjoying his kicks and praying for a chance to meet him face to face. Corban’s parents, brother and extended family were blessed with his presence for only a short while, but he will remain in our hearts until we meet him again in heaven.
Corban is survived by his mother and father, Rachel Miketa Lacey and Paul Lacey of Tonasket; brother, Isaac Lacey of Tonasket; maternal grandparents, Dennis and Donna Miketa of Maumee, Ohio and paternal grandparents, Theodore and Beverly Lacey of Trent, S.D.
Mass of Christian Burial will be said on Saturday, March 10, 2012 11 a.m. at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Tonasket with Father David Kuttner presiding. Interment will follow at the Tonasket Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, a donation in his memory may be made to The Forget-Me-Not perinatal loss program at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane, Wash.
