Kylie Jean Kurtz

Kylie Jean Kurtz of Devine, Texas gained her angel wings in the morning hours of June 2, 2022. She was born to her parents, Jason and Shelley Kurtz, on November 8, 2004 in San Antonio, Texas.
Kylie was born with an extremely rare medical condition called Trisomy 9 (T9M) and had the odds stacked against her from birth. Trisomy 9 has a very low life expectancy but that didn’t stop Kylie from fighting. She lived a happy 17 years of life before she entered the pearly gates of Heaven with her loving parents by her side holding each of her hands.
She is survived by her father, Jason Dean Kurtz; mother, Shelley Denise Kurtz; and doggy brother Rossi. She will be remembered by her many family members, her T9M friends, and care givers who all cared for her dearly.
Kylie loved any and everyone that crossed her path. She loved to laugh, be outdoors, look at bright lights, and play with her very favorite toys. Her story reached people all over the states when KSAT 12 news did a piece on her for her 16th birthday. She had the best drive-by birthday party to celebrate her huge milestone birthday. She had the most beautiful smile that could brighten the darkest room. She will be deeply missed and live on in the hearts of many.
Services were held at Hurley’s Funeral home in Devine on Tuesday, June 7th at 2pm. Public visitation began prior to the service from 12pm-2pm.
