PRICE - Our beautiful KateLynn Marie Sanderson earned her angel wings on March 13, 2013. KateLynn passed away in her parent's arms and surrounded by her loving family from chronic medical issues at The Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Wauwatosa, Wis.
KateLynn Marie was born Dec. 27, 2005 in Salt Lake City to Mike and Rhionna Houser Sanderson. Her life was celebrated with her loving parents Rhionna and Mike Sanderson, favorite little brother Kayden Terry Sanderson; her grandparents, Terry (Coella) Houser, Frank (Carolyn) Sanderson, Karla (Burk) Terry; and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and classmates that are proud to have shared in her journey.
KateLynn enjoyed watching television, playing her kindle and attending school. Some of her happiest moments was riding with her dad in his truck in the hills and cooking and working on craft projects with her mommy. She loved to play at the park, go camping and going for rides on her Pappa's RZR. KateLynn was known for her mesmerizing eyes, joyful laugh and a smile that would light up any room.
KateLynn always greeted people with a big hug, because she knew it made everyone smile. Those who had the honor of meeting Katelynn always described her as a sweetheart and gentle soul.
She never wanted to eat much, but when she did, kids alfredo or buttered popcorn were usually at the top of her list. She loved to watch and sing to Spongebob Squarepants and Kayden also started singing it with her. She loved Hello Kitty, Max and Ruby, and Team Umizoomi. KateLynn was a princess who loved to wear her pink frilly dresses. Even though she was plagued with medical issues, it never took away her ambition in life.
In remembrance of KateLynn the family is requesting everyone to wear her favorite colors pink or purple to the services

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
