Kaydence was born on April 2, 2017, in Iowa City, the daughter of Thomas Robert Barker and Dana LeaAnn Wiebold.

She enjoyed watching Paw Patrol, watching her brother play with his friends, going to school, making new friends, being outside and feeling the grass, and all of her horses. She loved being around other kids. Kaydence impacted lives of anyone who knew her. She was an inspiration to many people. She has seen more love in her short four years, than many have in one lifetime. Kaydence loved her parents and always knew when they entered the room. She had a smile that would light up the room and always made you smile.

Kaydence will be remembered by her mother, Dana Wiebold; her father, Thomas Barker; her brother, Braxton Baines; paternal grandmother, Cathy Burden and paternal grandfather, Randy Barker; maternal grandparents, Beverly, and Scott Belzer; and many aunts and uncles.

She is preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Gary Burden; and maternal grandfather, Dennis Wiebold.

"Kaydence has always held a special place in my heart, the little girl I never had. I think I unofficially adopted her. I just told her she was like the little sister that I never had, and she smiled at that. I loved getting down on the floor with her, at her level, and we would both laugh at each other. Kaydence, you made a difference in everybody's life that net you. I will love you forever!! "
