Carolee Castagno Renberg passed to the next life after a valiant fight with cancer on June 8, 2013, surrounded by her loving husband and family.

Raised in Grantsville, Utah, Carolee was valedictorian at Grantsville High School and graduated from Dixie College and Southern Utah University in Elementary Education. Her unique gifts influenced thousands of students over the 19 years of her teaching career. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her four children and 14 grandchildren.
