Hadley Maass, age 2, of Seymour passed away July 19, 2020 with her Mama by her side. She battled SJIA/HLH with all her might. Hadley was known by her family and hospital family as a fierce little firecracker. She had a special love for chickens, puppies and her blankets. Despite her illness not much slowed her down, she would spend hours and hours outside playing with Aussie, Nenny and her Buckbuck.
She is survived by her Mama and best friend, Ashley Helser; brother and sister: Austin and Kenley Helser; grandparents: Donna and Jerry Maass; a very special Aunt Sam and Uncle Cody; and her partner in crime, Thomas, a very special babysitter who loved Hadley as her own; Ryan Uhlenbrauck; granparents: Reed and Renee Uhlenbrauck; Nicki, Michael and Scarlet Zuiches; Courtney, Nick Vivienne and Mylah Wolfgram; she is further survived by lots of special family friends and extended family.
She is proceeded in death by her cousin Adaleena.
