Zeliyah Jolene Marie Linder was born on January 6, 2018 in Fargo, ND to Destiny Rodriguez and Ezekiel Linder. Zeliyah loved playing outside with her sister, Jaydence or getting into things she's wasn’t supposed to. Zeliyah had to get her way or she would put on a show. She was a shy baby but once she got to know you she was the sweetest baby a person could ever hope to meet. Zeliya always had a smile on her face no matter what. Hearing her laugh made everyone's day.
She was a grandma’s baby and loved being in the kitchen playing with grandma’s pots and pans or trying to help clean. She slept with grandma every night.
Zeliyah spent most of her days with Auntie Maria. She loved getting into auntie’s stuff just like her mommy. Zeliyah loved being with Auntie Maria all the time, she was always knocking on aunties door while she was doing her homework.
