Just 25 hours after entering the world, Rylii Rose passed away peacefully in her mother’s arms at Ochsner Baptist in New Orleans, LA. During her brief time, she captured the hearts of all that never left her side.

Born at only 5lbs and 10oz, Rylii was able to grip her father’s finger and respond to his touch. She had a beautiful head of dark hair and acclaimed her daddy’s looks. She was born at 9:25 pm on March 8, 2019 with Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease (ARPKD). On March 9, 2019 at 10:31 pm, Rylii gained her wings.

She is survived by her parents, Jacob Chouest, Sr. and Kassi Bella; siblings, Landin Bella, Chance, Nicholas Jr. and Kylii Falgout and Jacob Chouest Jr.; grandparents, Errol Jr. and Michelle Chouest; great grandparents, Clint and Gail Thibodeaux; aunts, Kasey Smith, Chloe Chouest and Mitzie Danos; uncles, Arthur (Mack) Smith and Tyler Pitre; godparents, Dawayne Johns and Laynee Chouest; honorary godfather, Errol Chouest III.

Rylii joins her great grandfather, Errol Chouest Sr; her great grandmother, Rose Lirette and her uncle, Gaven (T-Goose) Chouest.

Her parents would like to thank the NICU staff for their dedication and express their appreciation to the loved ones who stayed by their side when it was needed the most. Rylii will always be remembered and loved.
