Fun Cheerful 11

Mercedez R. Garwood

January 13, 2002 ~ May 16, 2021 (age 19)


Our sweet Mercedez Rose Garwood, 19 went to be with the angels on Sunday, May 16, 2021 in Las Animas, CO. She was born on January 13, 2002 in Tulsa, OK.  She was always an angel on earth now she is one in heaven. 

Mercedez was a kind, beautiful soul, full of light and sunshine. She always had a smile on her face and lit up every room she walked in. She never let life get her down and never stopped being her unique self. Mercedez did not see bad in anybody, only the good, she loved everyone and was loved by all who crossed her path. Always there to pick you up when you were down, her goofy free spirit brought laughter and joy everywhere she went. With the voice of an angel, she loved to sing as well as dance, she loved goofing off and making people laugh. Mercedez enjoyed spending time with boyfriend, Ethan Nickell and always looked forward to having nights with her brother, Levi. She loved stuffed animals and believed everyone should have at least one and often shared stuffies with others to cheer then up in times of darkness. Mercedez was the singing star in the darkness and her spirit will continue to shine on.

Mercedez was preceded in death by her grandparents, Jack Hicks and David and Elise Love.

She is survived by parents, Summer Puga and Dennis and Debbie Love; brothers, Levi Garwood and Joshua Horn; sisters, Danielle Love and Danea Love; grandparents, Betty Hicks, Kim Garwood, and Virgil and Barbara Goofing; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
