Reina Alice Eich was born November 25, 2020 in Sioux Falls to Bryan Eich & Regina Dixon. Even though
her time was shortened, she made sure that she was in charge. Her first name means “Queen” in
Spanish and she lived up to the word and she was the “Queen of the NICU” at the Children’s Hospital.
When they were allowed to visit, her mom & dad were there to visit her often and they would always
end their visit with a bedtime story. Reina was never alone while she stayed at NICU because the
wonderful medical staff gave her all the attention she wanted when her parents couldn’t be there.
Reina will be greatly missed by her parents, Bryan & Regina; brother, Anthony; maternal grandmother,
Alice Dixon; paternal grandparents, Donna (Don) Amert & Bruce (Sharon) Eich; five aunts, Kaddie Dixon,
Sara Wardner, Amanda Amert, Lauren Antonen & Kimberly Giltner; one uncle, Brian Dixon and extended
She was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Ron Dixon.
Blessed be her memory.
