Obituary of Leilani Aysun Aurora Libstorff
Leilani Aysun Aurora Libstorff was born on November 29, 2022, in Monroe, Michigan to Sunshine Libstorff. Each part of her carefully chosen name has special significance. Leilani means “royal child of heaven”, Aysun “beautiful as the moon”, and Aurora “goddess of the sunrise whose tears turned into the morning dew”. Aurora was also chosen, as it is the name of the classic Disney princess, Sleeping Beauty. In utero, Leilani was a very active baby and gave her mother continuous kicks. She seemed to have both sweet and savory tastes as her mother craved ice cream and pancakes but also cheese and Chinese cuisine. It was love at first sight for Leilani’s family upon her arrival. She was born with the longest fingers, a “Libstorff” nose, and the darkest hair and eyebrows.
Leilani Aysun Aurora Libstorff, beloved baby girl, was born sleeping on Tuesday; November 29, 2022.
