It was a joyous day in Baltimore, Maryland on April 3, 2006 when Wendy and Gary celebrated the birth of their beautiful baby girl, Mikayla Ann Glacken. Mikayla was an identical twin and always had a very special bond with her sister, Madison.
Although there were many hardships in Mikayla’s life, she took on every challenge with positive attitude and an admirable perseverance. Mikki was everyone’s beacon of hope, and she permeated love. She touched people everywhere she went. Even strangers would come up to meet her, hold her hand and feel God’s love through her. Mikayla was a truly unselfish person. She never took from this world; she only gave. Her kind and loving spirit brought her family together and built an unbreakable bond between them.
Mikki was a sweet girl with a sense of humor. She loved watching Barbie movies and dancing to the music of Celtic Woman. She also enjoyed listening to her sister Ivetka play the piano for her. Mikki liked skipping rocks, blowing bubbles and doing most things, but she especially like spending time with her best friend and caretaker Duane. He provided excellent care and friendship to Mikayla over the past few years. He will always be loved by the Olson-Glacken family.
Mikayla Ann Glacken gained her angel wings on March 6, 2015. She passed away at home surrounded by her family who loved her so much. She will be forever loved and remembered always by her parents, Wendy & Kevin Olson and Gary & Sarah Glacken; siblings, Madison (identical twin), Riley, Blayne, Ivetka, Georgiana, Delaney and Kendall; grandparents, Linda & Gary Olson, Ron & Karen Glacken, Patty & David Curtis; many aunts, uncles & cousins; best friend and caretaker, Duane Strand; nurse, Carmen Mueller; other loving relatives and friends.
