Winifred Beatrice Wolfgramm

2011 ~ 2022

Winifred Beatrice Wolfgramm, 11, returned home to our Heavenly Father on November 30th, 2022. Winnie was born on the second of May, 2011, to Marcus and Catherine (Peterson) Wolfgramm in Salt Lake City. She is survived by her parents, sister Hattie, her brothers Tu’i and Otto, her grandparents Fred and Elizabeth (Gilgen) Wolfgramm and Curtis and Patricia (Dymond) Peterson, and countless other heartbroken cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, teammates, classmates and neighbors.

Winnie found expression and joy in many things: mirror makeup tutorials, learning the latest TikTok dance moves, cooking with her grandmothers and playing the piano, to name just a few. She excelled at creative writing and science at school, but will be best remembered by her Challenger and Bonneville teachers and classmates as a quick and loyal friend.

The soccer field is where Winnie found her greatest passion. She was a fierce competitor (often to the amusement of her coach and mother) but quick to help her teammates, sub in for any team that was short a player and quietly impressing and infuriating her competitors with a “legendary” stop-start. Winners want the ball!

The world was Winnie’s playground. From powder turns at Alta, boogie boarding at Newport Beach, river rafting in Alaska, soccer tournaments in Las Vegas, catching fireflies with her great-grandmother Bea in Pennsylvania to sledding with her brothers at Papa and Noni’s or “organizing” at Grandma Liz and Grampa Fred’s or Dave and Tracy’s, Winnie was fast to find adventure wherever she went.

In eleven short years, Winnie learned to share her grace and kindness with those both young and old. She seamlessly connected with anyone around her. Her sweet and nurturing spirit will always be cherished by all whose lives she touched, and all of her friends—she had many—will never forget her beautiful smile, infectious laugh or heartfelt hugs. Winnie embodied an easy-going, thoughtful attitude; she brought an independence and wisdom well beyond her years. Her authentic nurturance was a humbling example even for many adults.

Winnie will be greatly missed by all who knew her, but especially by her big sister and best friend, Hattie.

The Wolfgramm and Peterson families wish to extend their most heartfelt gratitude to the hundreds of people and astonishing outpouring of love, support, and sorrow they have shared since Winnie’s passing. They would also like to thank the first responders, caregivers at Primary Children’s Hospital, Larkin Mortuary staff and Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park.

Viewing and funeral services will be held at the Rose Park North Stake Center (1155 N 1200 West, Salt Lake City). Viewings will be held Sunday, December 4th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and again Monday, December 5th from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., followed by a private family viewing. Funeral services will be commence at noon. A private family interment service will take place Tuesday, December 6th at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park. Winnie would love for you to arrive in bright colors—sky blue is her favorite.

In lieu of flowers, remember to tell those around you that you love them. Tell them easily and often.

Winnie, we hope you are still dancing, laughing and making those around you smile.
We love you so much, WB!


My heart is broken for Winnie and all who loved and knew her sweet soul. God bless her in the heavens that will protect her forever while she waits to be joined by all her loved ones with an open heart ❤

Marcus and Catherine and families,

I am so sorry for your loss of such a sweet young lady. Whenever I saw her at church or around the neighborhood, she always had that beautiful smile. I also enjoyed seeing her care for and help her Mom and Dad with her brothers. She truly was an angels on earth and our families thoughts and prayers with you during this time.

What a beautiful tribute!
You were so lucky to have had Winnie for eleven short years, but she was lucky to have all of you too! She lived a good happy life! I bet she will be dancing with the angels, teaching other girls how to put on their makeup and scoring goals in heaven! 💙⚽️😇 Love to all of you!

Our family sends our deepest condolences. Drew was in Winnie’s class and he was touched by her goofiness and kindness. He has told me how smart she was and loved when Mr. Wild would call her Winnie the Wolf. He remembers playing soccer with her at recess and thinks she had such a great “touch.” She came over to our house once and she was so respectful and fun. We hope you feel her light and love always and send you all of ours during this difficult time.

There are no words for your loss. No parent should ever have to say goodbye to their child. No one can know your pain and grief, but please know there are those like us who have walked down this path before, and we are sending you all our love. You're not alone. May your angel daughter be at peace. May you find peace and healing in your own time.

- Jennifer Frahm and family

I don’t know Winnie or your family, but my grandson does. As someone who tragically lost a granddaughter, my heart stopped for a moment when I heard of your tragedy and I felt the ache of loss again. I pray the Lord will place His arms around you and comfort you as you miss and cherish your little one. He has a special place in His heart for her.
