Kylie Concannon

Kylie’s life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her infectious smile and beautiful blue eyes could melt the hearts of those around her and though she never spoke a word, her voice and thoughts could always be heard. She was lovingly called “Smiley Kylie”.

She is survived by her parents; her brothers, Kenneth and Christopher Concannon; her paternal grandparents, Sharon Concannon and David M. and Cheryl Concannon; her maternal grandmother, Nancy Pierce; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Kylie was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Charles Brock.

Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 15, 2016, at the R.L. Leintz Funeral Home. A funeral service will begin at 11 a.m. Tuesday, at the funeral home. Burial will follow at Mt. Muncie Cemetery. Memorials in Kylie’s honor are suggested to Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care Carousel or Charity of your choice.
