London Axis Zlonis, born sleeping on September 16, 2019. He was 25 weeks gestational weighing 1 lb. 10 oz. 12.5 inches long at Fairview Range Hospital in Hibbing, MNto the parents of Paige Perkovich and Layne Zlonis. His middle name means “between heaven and earth”. His due date was December 29, 2019. Even though this turn of events happened, his mommy wanted to do all she could for him. She birthed him naturally with induction, she held, cleaned, changed his blankies and slept with him. We were so ready to meet our baby in December and continue our journey as parents raising our beautiful boy, to watch him grow and see him do all of his “firsts” but instead we ended up with our angel baby who will always be in our hearts. London is survived by his loving parents, Paige and Layne, siblings, Harlow Perkovich, Nakaeda and Kendrik Zlonis and an 8 week gestational baby Zlonis. Maternal grandparents, Jamie and Brian Perkovich, great-grandparents LeeRoy Hoffman and Jane and Mike Perkovich, Uncle Shane “Bubba” Perkovich, his Auntie Tiffani (Greg) Clark, cousins, River, Willow and Colt Perkovich and Ariel Clark along with several other extended family members. He was preceded in death by his maternal great-nana, Sheila Hoffman who is holding him in the comfort of angel wings and paternal great-grandparents, Allen and Marion Johnson. Memorial service will be held 3:00 pm Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at Dougherty Funeral Home in Hibbing. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service. Special thanks to the OBGYN nurses at the hospital for their care and comfort and Dr. Bigelow for being the best Dr. I could ever ask for, for myself and delivering my babies.
