Isabella Kay Sneed, 18, of North Platte passed away July 9, 2021 at Great Plains Health.

Isabella was born July 25, 2002 in North Platte to Scott and Chandra (Starr) Sneed.

She grew up in North Platte and attended North Platte High School. She was the oldest of three daughters. Isabella adored being a big sister to Jillian and Emily and loved them both fiercely.

With her warrior attitude, Isabella ultimately won her battle against Type 1 diabetes. She often referred to herself as a “dia-badass” and was always happy and always trying to make everyone laugh.

She loved her “dad jokes” so much, she would tell the same jokes often, even if she was the only one laughing. Isabella was very nostalgic; she loved all kinds of music and movies from before her time.

She was a huge fan of Marvel, DC, and Disney movies. Isabella was a talented artist. She loved to draw her own superheroes, write her own books, as well as poetry.

Overall, Isabella had a huge heart and so much love for her family.
