She was born on May 28, 2014, in Peoria to Scott and Niki (Flowers) Kimmerle.

Eliana loved swimming, dancing, singing, tumbling, and playing with her sisters and brother. She wanted to be a ballerina. Above all, she loved pink, purple, sparkley, flowery, fancy, beautiful things. She loved and felt deeply, and was loved beyond measure. She was a sweet, strong, independent, smart, and sassy girl. Even though she was only with us for six years, they were some of the best of our lives. We will miss her unimaginably, but always love and remember her.
