Meah Marie Firemoon was born on November 8, 2017 to Laryn Jackson and Payton YellowHawk in Wolf Point, Montana at Trinity Hospital and was flown to Billings due to being premature with her older twin Sister Illiana Leigh Firemoon.
Our Meah Marie was so exciting to watch. She was so active that every time she heard Gramma Taryn, Uncle Farren and her mother Laryn’s voices our Meah Marie would open her eyes, smile and wave at us. During her care time with her mother, Meah would reach for Mom’s finger and hold on until she was done changing her.
Meah was a happy baby. She touched many hearts in her short time here on earth. Meah passed away in her mother’s arms on December 9, 2017 at the Billings Clinic in Billings, Montana.
