Haylee Marie Atagi-Barker, 22, of Independence, MO, passed away on October 20, 2019. A visitation will be held from 6:00-8:00pm on Friday, October 25, 2019 at Carson-Speaks Chapel, 1501 W. Lexington, Independence, MO 64052. Mass will be at 10:00am, on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 600 N. Liberty St, Independence, MO 64050.

She grew up in Independence and graduated from William Chrisman High School. Haylee married Christian Barker on July 20, 2019. She was the love of her family’s life; a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, and niece. Haylee loved music, going to the river market, tattoos, taking walks with her husband and daughter, spending time with her family, cooking, and makeup. She was full of life, loved life, and did everything her own way, no matter what anyone else thought. Above all else, Haylee was a dedicated, loving mother to her 11-month old daughter, Leinani Rinea and to the 10-week old baby she was carrying. Haylee is survived by her daughter, Leinani; her parents, Janette Howe and Rickie Atagi; siblings, Samantha (Katie) Brenton, Malia Atagi, Jace Combs, Aaron Atagi, Lindsey (Andres, Ella and Avery) Giraldo, and Kelsie Atagi; maternal great-grandparents, Ralph and Janet Howe; uncles Ralph Howe II and Robert (Amber, Raelyn and Rex) Howe; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins from the Howe, Atagi and Blomquist families. She is preceded in death by her paternal grandparents; maternal great-grandparents; and cousin, Mason Atagi. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Leinani Rinea Atagi-Barker Trust Fund.

My heart was caught when I saw you lost your precious daughter Haylee with her sweet smile and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose such a beautiful child, a part of you, can bring such overwhelming grief and our words may not help but Jesus assures us at John 5:28,29 that you will have your her in your arms once again without the pain we see today. Until God’s promises come true may every good thought, every memory of the love you felt, flood and overtake you with calm and peace to help you through the dark moments. Please go to for more encouraging scriptures and videos to help heal your broken heart 💔 Sue

Haylee had the most beautiful smile that would light up a room. She would hug you and warm your soul up. She treated everyone with respect and love. I will never forget her just running and tackling my son with the best hug ever!! No matter how long it had been since I saw her she was all love!! Jenny my heart hurts for your pain, I know life will never be the same for you, but every time you see her face in Lei you will know she is with you. Sam, Malia & Jace I can't imagine your pain, I know my kids would be incomplete without one. We are sending positive thoughts to you for your healing.

I'm so sorry for this family's loss, because it cuts so deep and affects so many. I was best friends with Haylee during middle and high school and we were like sisters. Her gentle nature and infectious laugh brightened the day of everyone who knew her. She can never be replaced
