Harley Marienhoff, 16, of Spruce Grove, Alberta, was taken away from our world much too soon, passing away suddenly on December 22, 2021.
Harley was born on February 10, 2005 to Travis and Sherri Marienhoff in Edmonton, Alberta. Harley attended Spruce Grove Composite High School and was passionate about her studies in anticipation of attending a Sociology program in University in the fall of 2022.
Harley loved spending time with her friends and family, meeting most of her friends through school. Her closest companion however, was and will forever be her younger brother Odin.
Deeply kind and considerate to more than just humans, many different animals (dogs, cats, a special horse, and even some silly chickens) were truly a huge part of her life. She also deeply enjoyed a very broad range of music and had an incredible talent for baking delicious and creative meals and treats. Another great pride of hers was having her own car this year which had been in her life since just a few weeks following her birth.
Anyone who knew Harley was blessed with the experience of her beautiful smile, funny and spirited energy, and her sincere attitude. Her authentic nature was highlighted by the ability that she had to help others feel truly supported, seen and heard. Qualities that positively enhance society overall. The ripple effect of her presence in our lives will never end.
Harley’s memory will forever be cherished by her parents Travis (Joe-Anne) and Sherri; brother Odin; grandparents Ann, Calvin, Carolyn; aunts and uncles Lori, Angela (Neil), Mike; cousins Hayden, Carenna, Scotlynn, Travis, Maxten; and many other extended family members as well as several very close friends. Harley was predeceased by her grandpa Glen and aunt Susie.
The family requests that memories and stories about Harley be emailed to SherriMarienhoff@gmail.com or posted on the website www.HarleyMarienhoff.com in place of flowers. There will be a private service at a later date.
In lieu of memorial donations, Harley’s family would like her peers and their families to consider exploring ice driving / defensive driving training for themselves which is available in our area. While Harley was a careful and responsible driver, it is their belief that any extra practice and training (for all ages) has the potential to save families from such tragedies.
