Lila Rose (Lee-Lah) Bradshaw, 14, of Ammon, passed away May 21, 2024.

Lila was born March 29, 2010, in Bethesda, Maryland, to Tristan Luke Bradshaw and Lethe Ann Harnish Bradshaw. She grew up and attended schools in Bossier City, Louisiana and Ammon, Idaho and was finishing her 8th grade year at Black Canyon Middle School where she was a diligent straight-A student.

She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She enjoyed dragons, art, beaches, animals, fan fiction, manga, science, and coloring her hair. She loved her dad, her dog Beaux, acting, singing, sparring with her dad, cosplay, anime, role playing games (especially D&D), rollerblading, hazelnut hot chocolate, Dr. Pepper, Mochi ice cream, Honeybuns, Nutty Bars, and laying in the sunshine.

Lila was a wonderful teacher. She was in the Leadership program at Southwick Martial Arts Academy and was on track to become an instructor at age 15. Lila was awarded an honorary eternal black belt for her excellence in taekwondo, tai chi, sword, drop dart, and fan proficiency.

She was musically gifted and excelled at the guitar, drums, piano, ukulele, and singing, and was also a Let’s Play Music graduate. Her favorite song was “Dragon Slayer”by Rob Grice. Baking was her forte, as Lila enjoyed creating in the kitchen. She loved to read. Her favorite book series was “Wings of Fire” by Tui Sutherland and her favorite manga was “My Hero Academia.” She liked to create in many mediums including painting, animation, 3D printing, pepakura, wood engraving, and cosplay. Lila drew every day. She loved to characterize her family and friends. She was also interested in Japan and its culture and was sewing a kimono.

Lila is survived by her parents and her four brothers: McKay, Nolan, Ozzy, and Paxton, as well as her paternal and maternal grandparents.
