Ayla was predeceased by her sister Nell and brother-in-law Art Hansen, brother-in-law Bruce Cudney and nephew John Mandlis. We won’t forget her fun spirit and the spark of life that she always was or her caring, kind-hearted ways. She was creative and over the years played guitar, sang, painted, sketched, wrote poetry and crocheted. She liked to spend time outdoors gardening and visiting the lake. Ayla also enjoyed the company of her family, friends and her dog Riley. Her worklife varied over time as she had many interests however, she mainly put her heart and soul into caring for children, elderly and mentally challenged people. Their joy was her joy.
