Kayana Otissey Brooke Schaak Gonzalez, of Billings Montana, was called home on June 6th 2019, at the age of 21. Kayana was born on May 24, 1998 in Billings, MT to her parents, Bettina Tallbull and Brooks Schaak. Kayana had seven siblings, three sisters (Chonita Ortiz, Brooklyn Schaak and Amiyah Schaak), two brothers (Antonio Tallbull and Dario Ortiz) and two step-sisters (Hailey and Brianna Diggs). Even as a little girl, Kayana, always had a passion for helping others. She worked as a medical technician and loved being able to provide care and support to those who needed it the most. She was a fashionista and a truly talented makeup artist. Her dream was to become a professional makeup artist, as she saw the beauty within all people and wanted to help others see and feel as beautiful as she saw them. Words written from her heart broken brother, Antonio Tallbull, “She was our sister, our best friend, a daughter, and a granddaughter. She was always the one person we could go to and tell anything. Kayana, babygirl, we will never forget you. You blessed us with 21 great years. You have always been my angel and I know you are flying high with them now.”
Kayana is survived by her mother, Bettina Tallbull, her father and step-mother Brooks and Virginia Schaak, her 5 siblings and 2 step-sisters, her grandmothers, Ernestine Tiger Highpin and Krissy Schaak, her grandfathers, Jacob Tallbull Jr. and Cochise Gonzalez and her nephew, Maximo Ortiz. She is also survived by her aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Funeral arrangements will be Wednesday, June 12th from 11:30-1 pm at Smith West Funeral Chapel 304 34th Street West.
Visitation will be on Tuesday, June 11th at Smith West Funeral Chapel from 12:00-8:00 pm
Immediately following the conclusion of the funeral services, a celebration of Kayana’s life will be held at American Legion 1540 Broadwater Ave.

My heart was caught when I read you lost your daughter Kayanna and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose a child, a part of you, can bring such overwhelming grief but Jesus assures us at John 5:28,29 that you will have her in your life once again without the pain we see today. Until God’s promises come true may every good thought, every memory of the love you felt, flood and overtake you with calm and peace to help you through the dark moments. Please go to for more encouraging scriptures and videos to help heal your broken heart 💔
