Alaire Dela Staso, age 23, died Saturday, March 16, 2024 with her family by her side.

Alaire was born on November 23, 2000 at St. Ann's Hospital in Westerville, Ohio to Shanna Staso. Alaire loved the movie Moana and enjoyed the soundtrack. She was also a fan of the Pitch Perfect Trilogy. She especially loved it when her family and friends were around her.

Alaire achieved milestones that were said to be unattainable. Even though she was not verbal, she expressed her feelings in her own way, and it was obvious when she was happy, sad or irritated.
In 2019 Alaire graduated from Beechcroft High School. This past Thanksgiving was her Golden Birthday turning 23 on the 23rd in 2023. That was a blessing and a wonderful day.

Alaire loved spending time with her family and was always completely comfortable and relaxed while visiting Uncle Roger and Aunt Peggy in Northern Michigan.

Alaire is survived by her mother, Shanna Staso Canada; sister, Naomi Canada; aunt, Angela Staso; cousin, Ellis Stewart; half-sister, Ciara Yancy; nephew, Anthony Paga; grandma, Denise Redpath; Pap Pap, Jim Redpath; aunts, Linda, Barb, Chrystal, Uncle Jimmy and families, and so many more that loved her.

Alaire was preceded in death by her grandfather, Richard Staso; great-grandma, Elizabeth Staso; great-grandpa, Andrew Staso; great-grandma, Oda Collmar; great-grandpa, Donald Collmar, and so many more who welcomed her with open arms.

Alaire will be especially remembered for her beautiful eyes, face and smile. Alaire also had a fiery spirit that served to inspire everyone she met. She is now free from her chrysalis to fly, run, jump, talk, sing, and do everything she wasn't able to do in this world.

Visitation will be held Saturday, April 20th from 1-3 p.m. at Moreland Funeral Home with a service to follow at 3:00 p.m.

A Butterfly Lights Beside Us

A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam...

and for a brief moment its glory

and beauty belong to our world...

but then it flies on again, and although

we wish it could have stayed,

we feel so lucky to have seen it at all.
