It is with the deepest sadness and despair that we must announce the passing of our dear Kaley Renee Dostal. We tragically lost our Kaley on November 27, 2023. As the news of her passing spread, countless family, friends and coworkers reached out in sadness over her loss. Our Kaley was loved far more than she could’ve imagined.
Kaley was born in Phoenix, Arizona on October 26, 1992. She was cherished and loved from the moment she was born. Kaley graduated from Sandra Day O’Connor High School and then worked toward her Associate’s Degree at Mesa Community College. Kaley worked with the Mesa Police department as a “911 Operator” where she made numerous friends and helped many people in their times of need. In addition to her Mesa job, Kaley got certified as a massage therapist and displayed her entrepreneur talents in helping to build, advertise and run a successful business. Beyond her working career, Kaley had a very warm and close relationship with her siblings, Stephanie, Chelsea, Tyler and Kyle. Kaley always brought a beautiful smile and infectious giggle to any family event or gathering of friends.
In remembrance of our Kaley, her father Tom wrote the following;
“A few of Kaley’s unique qualities that we all loved was her personality, honesty, curiosity, and genuine smile. She was very personable and could make friends with anyone. Kaley had a passion for helping people. Always putting other people’s needs ahead of her own. She was always ready with a kind word or an ear to listen.
Kaley loved the outdoors and had an adventurous side to her. It involved spending time pursuing hiking, taking on the toughest trails, camping, fishing, and horseback riding. She took many trips out of state to places like California, Iowa, Canada, and cruising to places like Panama, Costa Rica, and Mexico. She loved visiting her cousins that she thought were so cool.
We will remember you for being hard working, down to earth, sincere, and a great friend.
We will miss you.”
Kaley is survived by her mother JoAnn, father Tom, step-father Kim and siblings Stephanie, Chelsea, Tyler and Kyle. In addition she has grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and numerous friends who all love and miss her. We love and miss her so very much and have a hole in our hearts and lives that will never be filled again. The family will be planning a memorial service for Kaley to be held at a later date which will be open to all who wish to pay their respects.
May you be at peace by God’s side Kaley, we love you with all our hearts and will miss you always.
