Abigail Rae Hett, 11, passed away on Sunday, May 30, 2021.

Abby was born on January 5, 2010 in Salina, Kansas to Phillip and Kimberly Hett. She joined her big sister Jillian Louise making their family complete. Living her entire life in Lindsborg, Kansas, Abby attended St. Bridgett’s Little Kingdom Preschool/Pre-K, Soderstrom Elementary School, and Smoky Valley Middle School.

In her short life, Abby lived every minute to the fullest and was always at the speed of 100 miles an hour. She had just finished her 5th grade year at Smoky Valley Middle School. Excited to be a part of the band and orchestra, Abby played the clarinet and cello respectively. Abby also loved seeing her sister Jillian at school, running up and hugging her in front of other classmates! Giving the best hugs, always kind and loving, Abby put the needs of others before her own. Abby encouraged everyone to get along and be happy. Simply put, she was great at making people smile.

Abby was preceded in death by her father, Phillip Hett; grandaddy, David Peck; great-grandparents, Charlie and Jean Doudna; and great-grandpa, Harry St. Peter.
