Obituary - Peyton Ryne Riedel

Peyton Ryne Riedel, 25, of Colorado Springs, Colorado passed away on August 28th, 2018 in Colorado Springs as a result of a tragic automobile accident.

On November 14, 1992 in Wichita, Kansas the Lord blessed the home of Stephen and Pamela Riedel (Simons) with the gift of a daughter. 

She was the center of their life and brought much joy to their family. Peyton spent her early school years attending St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School in Wichita and graduated high school in 2011 with honors from Fort Scott High School in Fort Scott, Kansas.

Peyton was a vivacious, loving, free-spirited young woman with a bright future ahead of her. She loved all things purple, softball, and animals; particularly her French Bulldog, Lulu. She had a lifelong softball career, and played while attending college at Newman University in Wichita where she received her Bachelor Degrees in Psychology and Criminal Justice. This fall would mark her third year as an Assistant Softball Coach at Pine Creek High School in Colorado Springs, CO. Her love for athletics fueled her passion to further her education. 

She graduated in December of 2017 with a Master’s degree in Sports Psychology from the University of the Rockies. She had a dream to work at the Olympic Training Facility as a Sports Psychologist and was preparing her resume to pursue that passion this fall.

Peyton was fun and energetic, always able to put a smile on your face. She was adored by her family, especially her second cousins, and all the children she cared for. Her warm laughter and quick wit will be greatly missed and always remembered.

She is survived by her mother, Pamela Riedel of Kansas City, Missouri, her father, Stephen Riedel of Wichita, Kansas, her paternal grandmother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many, many friends.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Cleland and Mary Allen, paternal grandfather, Robert Riedel, uncle, Billy Simons, and cousin Gabriel Hoover.

Visitation will be Monday, September 3rd, 2018, from 5-7pm at the Cheney Witt Chapel, 201 South Main, Fort Scott, Kansas 66701. Services will be Tuesday, September 4th, at 11am at the same location.
