Hayley Jo Ellertson
Heaven received our beautiful angel on September, 25 2021. Hayley was born on November 1st 2000 at Cottonwood Hospital in Murray Utah to Lyndee Hill-Diamond and Steve Ellertson. Hayley was a fighter from her first breath to her last, undergoing many heart procedures throughout her short 20 years of life with the most recent being a heart transplant on January 26th 2020.
Hayley graduated from Payson High school in 2019. She had a passion for horses, traveling, camping and shopping. At the typical age of 20 Hayley truly enjoyed her social media network by taking selfies, creating TicTok’s and updating her status. Her smile was radiant and her laughter was genuine.
Hayley’s personality was nothing short of sassy, bold and full of fire. She taught us the true meaning of unconditional love through life’s trials, and more than anything Hayley loved people to the fullest and wanted everyone to love her back.
Hayley is survived by her parents; Lyndee (Troy) Diamond, Steve Ellertson. Her siblings; Kaydee (Josh) Walton, Sierra (Avery) Bryner, Colten (Rylee) Ellertson. Nephews Stryder and Haizen. Also survived by her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. She was welcomed home by her step dad Vaughn Hill, her grandpa Harold Robinson, her uncle Junior Robinson, her cousin Korey McCart, her grandma Vera Blockovich and her grandma Mary Diamond.
We will be honoring Hayley on Monday, October 4, 2021. Her viewing will start at 10 am followed by her services at 12 noon at the Payson LDS church, 12625 Spring Lake Rd, Payson UT. 84651. Graveside services will begin at approximately 2:15 pm at Lake Hills Cemetery, 10055 South State St, Sandy UT. 84070.
“Goodbyes are not forever, Goodbyes are not the end; it simply means I’ll miss you until we meet again.” We love you Hayley
I don't know Hayley, but can tell that I, as a mother, would love her. We are also a "horse family". Soo sorry for her loss. May her family find comfort.
