Cordelia Aeris Rankins-Stichick, just under four months old was carried to Heaven on the Wings of Angels on Thursday, February 19, 2015.
Cordelia was born on October 24, 2014 at St. Vincent Health Center, the daughter of D.A. Stichick and Carlee D. Rankins. Even though her time here on earth with her parents, sisters and brothers was short, she had a smile that radiated like the sun and eyes that sparkled like diamonds on the white glistening snow.
Cordelia is preceded in death by her Maternal Grandparents, Sarah and Franklin Trask and her Paternal Grandmother, Teena Stichick and Great-Grandmother, Geraldine Stichick.
Besides her parents, she will be sadly missed by two sisters: Rayna Salhoff of Erie and Marielle Rankins at home; and three brothers: Dekotta Salhoff of Erie and Loki Rankins and D.A. “Sonny” Stichick at home. She is also survived by Maternal Grandparents : Bruce and Deborah Harps of Erie and Michael Horton of American Canyon, California and Louise Salhoff of Erie. Also, a Great-Grandpa, Don Stichick of East Springfield, Pa. She will be sadly missed by many Aunts: Jennifer DeHaan of Longmont, CO; Amanda Horton of Erie; Catherine Rankins of Erie; Stephanie and Rebecca Harps of Erie and an Uncle: Peter Clark of Erie and several cousins and friends.
