Katelyn graduated from Three Rivers High School with the class of 2008. She then earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at Western Michigan University. Katie was employed as a customer service representative for medical instruments at the Stryker Corp. for the last several years.
Katie was a bright and vibrant soul who had a great sense of humor and who could make friends wherever life took her. She loved to travel, especially to Disney World where she picked her up life’s motto “Hakuna Matata” loosely translated means no worries, everything’s fine. She could always be counted on when someone needed a friend or shoulder to lean on. Dogs were always a big part of her life and she rescued several. She truly loved her family and friends, who will miss her always.
Katelyn was preceded in death by her grandparents, Jack and Catherine Pelon, one uncle, Jim Pelon, and one aunt, Catherine Wolfe.
