In Memory of

Katie Burkey

July 19, 1995 – September 6, 2017
Anoka, Minnesota

Katie was a beautiful, life loving, bright, athletic, warm, family orientated, giving, and the most amazing daughter anyone would have been extremely proud to have. Her short 22 years on this earth were filled with her selfless act to others, cherishing time with family and friends, and lighting up a room with her energy and loud, yet absolutely beautiful, laughter.
Katie left this world far too early at the hands of an irresponsible driver. Our family is taking on the fight to change laws that may hopefully save families from going through the same horrific heartache.
Although Katie’s life could have been so many brilliant things, her legacy may be one of changing laws to make the roads safer for other people. As she gave herself so selflessly to others here on this earth, she will do the same in heaven.
Katie we love and miss you dearly, but will see you again one day.

Katie had the brightest spirit in any room with the laughter to make everyone smile.
