Miss Aimee Diane Haner, 32, passed away Nov. 14, 2011, at Research Medical Center in Kansas City.
Miss Aimee was born Oct. 5, 1979, in Butler, Mo., daughter of Arlene Kay (Brunkow) and James Duane Haner. She attended the Briarwood State School and more recently attended the Day Program at Casco Area Workshop in Harrisonville. Aimee particularly loved stuffed animals, and her family describes her specific love of Scooby Doo. She also enjoyed other cartoons such as Charlie Brown, (she specifically liked Snoopy) and Disney movies. Aimee was a music and animal lover who cared for her cat, affectionately called "Missy Kitty Cat." She very much loved her young nephews and always liked little babies. But perhaps more than all these, she loved her brother Brian, known to her and always remembered as "Bubba"; although the nephews could sometimes be called "Bubba" also!
Aimee loved to laugh.
She was preceded in death by her great-uncle, Jack Gross; grandmother, Rosie Brunkow; grandfather, Vernon Brunkow; grandfather, Jim Haner; her great-aunt and great-uncle Ruby and Virgil Mills; and many other great-aunts and great-uncles.
She leaves behind her parents, Jim and Arlene Haner; her brother, Brian and wife, Melinda Haner; nephews, Ryan and Kyle Haner; grandmother, Jean Haner; great-aunt, Ruth Gross; great-aunt, Dora Jane McWherter; great-uncle, Jim Parks; great-aunt, Mary Jenkins; and a large number of aunts, uncles, cousins and great-cousins. She is survived by many friends, including those at the Casco Area Workshop and Briarwood State School; as well as her Bethel Fellowship of Cleveland community, and many friends in the Drexel, Mo., community.
