Katrina Lee Dahle, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on January 27, 2023.

Sometimes it’s hard to know what God‘s plan is, but we believe that Katrina is wrapped in the arms of her Heavenly Father and is no longer in pain.

Katrina endured more than most could with health challenges in her lifetime. Her poor body couldn’t keep up; however, the windows of her soul shined brightly through her big blue eyes and beautiful smile. Even to the end, she just kept showing signs that she just wanted to live! Katrina, we know you are flying high with the Angels and are no longer in pain.

Katrina Lee Dahle was born October 26, 1966. She graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1985. Katrina married the love of her life, Ron Dahle on September 22, 1989. Katrina had her son Corey on February 3, 1991. She loved helping him with his eagle project and was so proud of him graduating with honors.

Katrina is survived by her loving husband Ron Dahle and her son Corey (and Kelsey) Dahle, and grandchildren Dustin, Treyden and Avery;
stepdaughter Christar (Jeremy) Kranz and grandchildren Cambria, Jack and Emery. Her parents Milly Hoar, Brent Hoar (stepfather) and Robert Toombs. Her sisters, Stephanie Toombs and Teressa Toombs. Her extended Dahle family; Ken and Traci Dahle, Coleen Dahle, Jeff Dahle and his daughters, Stephanie (and Dallan) McCorkle and last, but not least her beloved dog, Jazmine, who will be close by her side.

Katrina, we love you, you’re awesome, you’re amazing, you’re beautiful!! We know you will be watching over your amazing husband Ron who went to the moon and back for you. We also know you will be watching over your son Corey and his family. For Katrina to actually see the day where she got to have grandchildren was truly a miracle!

Katrina was simply said, a true miracle!

Katrina’s wheelchair was an accessory in her life that traveled thousands of miles going to thousands of doctors’ appointments and traveling many places and enjoying life the best she could. Because of her husband's love for her; she got to experience life and be living within the confines of her ailments, and there were many. She loved to fly on planes and was able to travel to Hawaii many times, Mexico, Disneyland, Washington DC, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and many other places. That wheelchair heard the best of music because she loved concerts and was a true rocker girl of the 80s! They went to many rock bands and country concerts. Katrina and Ron went to all the Jazz games for many many years and they made dear friends in the process. Katrina and Ron had a Rzr and they loved going camping with family and friends and going on the Rzr. In more recent years they enjoyed going out to the sand dunes and she just loved that. They had many dear friends to share these experiences with. Katrina was blessed with some dear lifelong girlfriends, Nancy and Dee Dee and many neighbors over the years. On the night of her passing, Katrina’s neighborhood lined the streets with candles all the way up to their home, and Ron was able to pull in and see the garage covered in hearts. We thank you so much for your kindness and generosity, and something that was so special that will never be forgotten. Their home will forever be a sanctuary in remembrance of her. She loved her yard art, her beautiful roses, her pansies that she called “strongies”; they were just like her!

More than anything we know Katrina’s courage and strength helped her rise every day to keep living, and to be with her lifelong soulmate, Ron, her son Corey and her dog Jazmine of 16 years that she loved so dearly.

Katrina loved angels, and she is now truly one of our angels and will be forever missed and known for her strength and endurance.

Katrina was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of five. Katrina’s mom worked for the Diabetes Association and Katrina went to all the summer camps and winter camps growing up. Diabetes is a vascular disease as the doctors said and it ultimately took its toll on every ounce of her body to the point where the only thing she could donate in the end, was the corneas of her eyes. We are grateful she was able to donate through what her eyes could see and also in appreciation of the organ donor program as she was also the recipient of her sister’s kidney 16 years ago. We ask that you please support those that have diabetes and create awareness in Katrina’s honor.

In lieu of flowers; please donate in Katrina’s honor to The American Diabetes Association

Always remembered and never forgotten… ‘With Brave Wings She Flies’

I was an intern the University of Utah in Internal Medicine in 1990/91 and I was involved in her care two different months, 1 was in the ICU and 1 on the medical floor. I've thought of Katrina many times over the years and googled her name a few times just trying to find out what happened to her. Today I found her here, I'm sorry for that but I'm also very happy to learn that she was able to go on to a full and meaningful life. I felt sorry for her in in all that she went through during her time at the University hospital. I went to a different hospital at the end of my internship and I suspect she was still in the hospital by the time I left. Katrina was instrumental in helping me learn a lot that I needed to learn as an intern. I have never forgotten her, my regret is that I didn't get to see her graduate out of the hospital.

Heartfelt condolences to her family and loved ones,
