Sydni Michelle Colt passed away at home April 30, 2021, leaving a huge hole in the hearts of those who loved and cared for her. She had just celebrated her 21st birthday.
Sydni was born April 2, 2000, to her parents Bret Colt and Michelle (Hillman) Swigart. Finding out on ultrasound she was a baby girl was thrilling to her parents as she followed two brothers! She was a busy and determined child. She had a beautiful smile and when she was happy, would light up a room.
Sydni was a beautiful, innocent and pure spirit in this life. She had autism, which made navigating her life a bit difficult at times. She had early interventions to help her with speech and development. She had many caring teachers and therapists over her years in school. She attended Hillcrest Elementary School and McKinley Elementary School in Boise, Idaho, River Valley Elementary, Heritage Middle School and Rocky Mountain High School in Meridian, Idaho. She made lasting relationships with peers, friends, teachers, classroom aids and caregivers that carry on to this day.
Sydni loved freely, laughed effortlessly and generated smiles wherever she went. Many hearts are broken as she will be deeply missed.
She is survived by her father, Bret Colt (Nancy), mother Michelle Swigart (Marvin), brothers Trevor (Shannon) and nephew Liam, Dylan (Bree), Spencer, Tyson (Amanda), nephews Jackson and Harrison, Cassidy and niece Harper, Savannah (Austin), her grandparents, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
