Ma'Lani Jade Barnes

May 17, 2024 — June 29, 2024


Ma’Lani Jade Barnes was born on May 17, 2024, at Allen Hospital, in Waterloo, Iowa, the daughter of Trevion Barnes and MaKayla McDaniel. She had the brightest smile when everyone told her she was beautiful. Ma’Lani was a strong little girl, trying to hold her little head up. She loved her bows in her hair and being milk drunk. Ma’Lani loved cuddling with her dad, she was always in his arms. She was the highlight of everyone’s day when she went to work at the salon with her mom. 

Ma’Lani passed in her sleep on Saturday, June 29, 2024, at her home. She is survived by her parents, Trevion Barnes, Sr. and MaKayla McDaniel of Waterloo; her big brother Trevion “T.J.” Barnes, Jr. of Waterloo; grandparents, Michael (Ebony) McDaniel of North Carolina, Tanya (Randy) Kollmann of Waterloo, Tanika Barnes of Waterloo, Dustin (Heather) Rindels of Waterloo; great-grandparents, Willie Ann Bonds of Indiana, Cindy (Billy) Lee of Indiana, Charlene (Alonzo) Wells, Sr., of Indiana, Cherrié Kay Wheeler of California, Regina Rebitz of Waterloo and Roy McDaniel of Waterloo and several aunts, uncles, great-aunts and great-uncles.
