August 1994 – August 2019
“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln
Caitlin was born on August 3, 1994, in Oak Lawn, IL. She obtained her Associates Degree in Flagstaff, AZ. She graduated from Marist HS in Chicago in 2012. She also attended St. Bede and St. Christina Elementary Schools.
Katie was a free spirit who brought unlimited joy to everyone she touched. She loved animals, nature (she was a certified Advanced SCUBA diver), and most importantly, her family and friends. She always loved to sit on the floor and have family game nights. She loved life and was genuinely a good person with a big compassionate heart and a beautiful smile. Katie touched so many; family and friends throughout her short, yet very memorable life. The lord took her way too soon, but he must have a plan for her. We will all see her again one day as she welcomes us into her home in heaven.
Katie, you will be missed by all.
