Noah Zachius Reed, infant son of Katie Botelho Reed of Dowagiac, Michigan had unexpectedly died prior to his birth at 12:54 p.m. on Sunday, November 29, 2020 at Spectrum Lakeland Hospital in Niles, Michigan.
He was best known to his mother, Katie who experienced Noah as a very active child for much of the past thirty-four weeks. He was her first child and has listened to her heartbeat and her voice all of his life.
Noah is survived by his mother, Katie Reed, by his grandfather, Frederick Reed and grandmother, Christine Botelho, both of Dowagiac; and by his Godmother, Jazmyne Kelsey. Two grandmothers have preceded him in death, Clara Botelho and Mamie Lou Davis.
Memories of Noah Zachius Reed will be treasured in the heart of his mother, Katie who will love to hear his name spoken by relatives and friends. Arrangements were made at the Halbritter-Wickens Funeral Home, 615 East Main Street in Niles. Online condolences may be left at:
Noah’s brief months with Katie has made her world seem wonderful and mild, with activity that brought smiles and laughter. He is now running and laughing with angels, and listening for his mother’s voice.
