Sierra Rose Issel

December 9, 2020

Sierra Rose Issel was born to Jason and Tamara Issel on September 24, 2007.

She left this earth to meet the Savior on December 9, 2020.

Sierra was a delight to all who knew her.


Early on we discovered she was a special girl that would need extra attention and help. This

did not take away from the delight of her personality to everyone around her. She had a sense of humor, a ready smile, and a love of life. She loved socializing with her classmates and making them laugh. She also loved music, she loved singing at home and loved singing in church and school, she also loved dancing at home and at school. All this will be missed by all who knew her. She enjoyed going to the library, and having books read to her.

She loved playing with her grandparents on a regular basis. She had a room full of her favorite toys, games and books which she enjoyed with the grandparents.

All her life she struggled with intestinal issues which left doctors uncertain about how to treat her. This meant special consideration to her diet and careful watching of her symptoms. After a short few days battling with these issues the Lord took her home to be with him. She now is enjoying full health and we praise the Lord for her new home.


She will be missed by family, friends, teachers, classmates and all who knew her. Survivors are the parents, Jason and Tamara Issel, paternal grandparents Doug and Debbie Haeussler, maternal grandparents, Duane and Sharon Regehr, and her Uncle Corey and Aunt Abby Regehr. May God use her little life to continue to bring joy to those around her.


A celebration of life service will be 11:00 a.m. Monday January 4, 2021 at Grace Community Church in Newton. A private family interment will follow at Greenwood Cemetery Newton, Kansas


Memorials are suggested to Grace Community Church in care of Petersen Funeral Home Newton, Kansas.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful granddaughter. I know she meant the world to you. I’m sorry I never got to meet her. I enjoyed looking at her pics every time I was at your place. What a beautiful angel. She will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her. Our thoughts and prayers to the family.

Sierra is singing with the angels with her Savior Jesus restored to perfect health. My prayers will be with you for comfort for your hearts! Praying for grandparents and your whole extended family as you miss her!

  3. To my precious granddaughter Sierra: as I write this, yesterday was one month to the day since God called you home. Gramma Haeussler and I will miss you more than you’ll ever know. You taught my heart to love in a way it’s never loved before. I hope we are together again soon.
