About Payton

Payton was a thriving fifteen year old who was involved in everything.  In October of 2021, Payton was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (Brain Cancer). Payton was a warrior throughout her battle.  She would not let it dictate what she was able to do and continued to do all the things she loved. Payton took dance classes in Tap and Contemporary at a Dance Quest International in Brandon. She continued to get straight “A’s”  and was on track to graduate in 2024 with an Associates Degree in Arts as well as her high school diploma. Payton was also in love with theatre. She was the lighting designer for Armwood’s theater department. In January of 2023, Payton went home to our Lord. Her family is carrying on her passion and mission through Payton’s Legacy.
