Jada Ferris

jada ferris

Jada Elizabeth Lindberg-Ferris was born on July 8, 1991, at MedCenter One in Bismarck, ND.  She was truly a blessing from God to her mother, Kelly Radebaugh and step-father Brett Radebaugh; and her father Matthew Greseth and step-mother Marcia Svaleson.  She passed away July 19, 2011, in the ICU at Sanford Health Hospital. 

While her illness prevented her from completing her high school studies, she was looking forward to attending college and pursuing a degree in psychology.  She had interests in drawing, dance, cooking and reading.

She is survived by her loving parents, her brother Nathan Greseth, step-sister Jamie Radebaugh, grandparents Sharon Ferris and Will Azure, Don and Tony Lindberg, Lorin and Marty Styf, Gerald and Sharon Radebaugh, and a wealth of cousins and friends.  She was preceded in death by her great grandmother Myrtle Styf.

The family would like to thank everyone for their love and support.  They would like to thank the staff at Hillsboro Medical Center for their years of support to both Jada and the family.

Memories Timeline


  1. Midland TexasI am so saddened to hear of the loss of Jada. She was such a wonderful child and I thought of her often. My heart goes out to all of her family. I am glad I was able to know and love such a strong child who was able to do so much despite her disease. Prayers for Jada and all who loved her.

  2. Jada always had a smile on when I saw her. I remember visiting her in the hospital and when I came in she had a smile on. She always had something nice to say about others. She really was a good person who’s soul shined through her eyes. Jada, you will be so much better now. We love you and will remember you always 🙂

    To Jada’s parents, family, and my student Jamie,
    I was so distressed this morning to hear of Jada’s death. She was a kindly and brave little lady that I much appreciated in my English class. I clearly saw how hard she fought against terrible odds.
    I wish you all strength after her long struggle against a fearsome disease, and I also recall how hard all of you worked to support her in her difficulty.
    With sincere sympathy, Gayle Hove King

    Jada, it is my hope that your higher power, who has called you to your final resting place, helps you reach unprecedented levels of inner peace, contentment, and helps you find the answers to your life’s meaning during your 20 years of existence on Earth.

    I first met you through David, Bridget, and your mother Kelly in the 1990’s.

    From an early age, you seemed to have an independant, free spririt about you I’m sure that you were a positive life force in David and Bridget’s childern, Heather and Brittany, as well as your friends and family, while on this Earth.

    Excel in your new home, set no limits on your future potential in your next plane of existence, and enjoy your new home free of pain and suffering.

    I will miss your presence on Earth.

    It is my wish that God will watch over your friends, your family, an all other people you have impacted in a positive way will lift the sorrow they are currently dealing with will give them comfort and serenity in their time of need.

    You, your friends, your family, and your family’s will be in my thoughts it is my hope that I can somehow help them though this difficult time in some way.

    Thank you for your time spent on Earth though is has been a while since I have seen you, somehow, it is my belief that you have impacted my life in a positive and intangible way as well.
