Mikayla Dorwart-Naugle age 21 passed on February 27, 2023 at the hospital surrounded by family and friends. Born on July 4th 2001, Wife of her soul mate Shane Naugle. Daughter of Jeremy and Misty Dorwart. Granddaughter to Leslie Rhoads, Kay Hearing, Mike and Kathy Dorwart, Great-Granddaughter to Mara Nell Sheffield. Mikayla is survived also by Father-in-Law Chris Naugle, Brother-in-Law Luke Naugle, Sisters Vanessa Dorwart, Rachel Disilvestri, Emily Gates, Uncle Mike and Aunt Andi Dorwart, Cousins Al and Leona, Niece and Nephew Lilly and Hunter, and several great Aunts and Cousins. Mikayla was a 2019 graduate of East Pennsboro High school and was heavily involved in color guard throughout. She earned several awards for her scholastic achievements. She also attended 2 years at HACC and was consistently on the Dean’s list, her goal was to be a social worker.
Mikayla always strived to do her best. She had a quirky sense of humor she was always able to get everyone to laugh, and she laughed at the most bizarre things. She had a very outlandish sense of fashion; she was a Fashionista if you asked her. She did not follow trends she made her own. She was known for her love of different colored hair you never knew what color her hair would be from day to day but it was always a crazy color. She also enjoyed her many colored wigs all different styles that she also wore. She loved to cook and created some very interesting recipes. She loved hanging with friends listing to music. Heavy metal was her favorite and dancing. She loved doing TikTok nose flares and made the most bizarre TikTok trying to get followers. Shane was always a reluctant participant, but she was very persuasive. She was always up for an adventure. Her friends would say she would drag them on her adventure whether they wanted to go or not. She was a very giving and thoughtful person she would always put others needs above her own. She loved to travel and experience different things wherever she went.
Beside her husband her 2nd love was her Dodge Challenger she loved that car many would say she didn’t have a heavy foot because she rarely drove over the speed limit. Who else would buy a sports car and get drive wise insurance. She loved going to car shows with Shane to showcase her car on weekends. She really loved Disney movies and watched many into the early hours. She absolutely loved her job at Texas Roadhouse and established many friendships during her years there.
Mikayla above all was a fighter. Against all odds after her prognosis, she lived her life to the fullest, she never gave up. She went on and got married, went to Paris, to Disney, Outer Banks and OC beach several times. Mikayla has a GREAT friend group. Kristin was her friend the longest they met on the kindergarten bus. Haley was also a great friend but they didn’t meet until middle school. She had so many other great friends too numerous to name and they all stuck by her and were with her up until the end.
Mikayla was an organ donor so even after she passed, she gave a gift of sight to someone. Hopefully the recipient see’s the world as she did.
This truly amazing and courageous young woman will be missed dearly by everyone that knew her. May she rest in peace.

I worked with Mikayla’s Oncologist, I was usually the face she would see before she would see him. No matter what she was always pleasant, would smile and laugh with me as I would try to pronounce some of the medications with crazy names. She was way too young and beautiful to be taken from this world. I left my position in August and have thought about her often. This was not what I wanted to find. Rest in peace, beautiful girl, the world is not the same without you.
My niece… of course I failed in getting closer to you over the years I’ve known you, and I’ll live to regret that. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t know you, and your pure heart and soul. You were taken too soon, as I know you would’ve made such a difference in the world. But I know there’s a reason you were taken and have to trust it was your time. I can rest knowing that your time here was certainly not wasted, and you touched the heart everyone you met in some way/shape/form. May you now rest in peace, and know that you are loved and will always be remembered. You will live on through those who love you, including me.
I often requested Mikayla at Texas Roadhouse. She was always friendly and served there very well. She always was upbeat during her health battles. May her soul rest finally in peace.
