Kaidynn Nichole Maynes, age sixteen, passed away on March 5, 2021 at home due to depression, anxiety, and a broken heart, which lead to suicide. She was born on March 25, 2004 in St. George, Utah to April (Nici) Nichole Fitzgerald Widner and Joseph Terry Maynes.
Kaidynn had the brightest smile and the most contagious laugh. She was so creative, spunky, funny, intuitive, wise beyond her years, and just flat-out adorable. She loved hunting, fishing, hiking, spending time with family, and making crafts. She also loved eating pickles, lemons, and cheesecake. She had an amazing talent for drawing, and she loved music. Kaidynn always held a strong face, and she always paid more attention to other peoples’ feelings than her own. Her death is a message that it’s okay to share hard feelings, to ask for help, to not let pain get in the way, to reach out, to recognize silent pain, and to be brave like she was.
She is remembered by her mom and dad; sisters, Jordynn Maynes and Alii Widner; brother Tak Widner; parents Jason Widner and Melissa Womack; sister Hailey Muniz; brothers Mason Widner and Wyatt Widner; Grandparents Dean and Doris Fitzgerald, Creig and DeAnna Maynes, Steven and Patsy Guest, Stan and Renee Womack; And aunts and uncles Jason and Melissa Lefler, Mike and Stephanie Maynes, Larry and Lydia Yerg, Kyle and Clarissa Richens, Scott and Jacee Crozier, Tyler and Jamie Maynes, Greg and Amber Jenkins, Jeff and Jamie Weldon, Josh and Amanda Melessa.
