Katherine Joyce "Katie" Hancock Obituary
1999 ~ 2014
Katie was born in Murrieta, CA, on April 26, 1999. She lived in nearby San Jacinto where she attended Record Elementary School. Her family moved to Eagle Mt, UT, in August 2008, where she attended Hidden Hollow Elementary School. For middle and high school, Katie attended American Heritage School in American Fork where her father teaches 9th grade. She was to begin her sophomore year there on August 26, 2014. Katie especially enjoyed her biology, art, music, and French classes, but not math, and is likely thrilled that she'll never have to finish her algebra class. Katie loved to draw: whenever she was sitting, she had a pen in hand to draw ponies and people with beautiful, far-seeing eyes, often on class notes and homework assignments. In June 2014, Katie attended her first Bikram Yoga class, and discovered a hidden passion. With the help of young women and men in her Rock Creek Ward, Katie completed her 30-Day Challenge on July 25, 2014: Namaste! Above all, our Katie lived for laughter and love. She was often heard imitating different cultural accents, as well as imitating animal and fowl calls: she recently mastered the peacock to the point that the birds would come to her when she called, "Hello!" If Katie could make her family and friends smile and laugh, it didn't matter to her what any other person thought of her performance. Monday evening, July 21, Katie attended a ball at the This Is the Place State Park village. She wore a golden gown and her lovely dark hair in ringlets. A posting on Instagram said, "Went to the ball tonight! Only thing missing was a dance with a prince!" It's telling that she chose a dress matching the YW color for virtue: Katie has always been, and will continue to be, true to her family, friends, and faith. Her family now has their own sleeping beauty. Survived by her parents David and Elizabeth "Libby" Hancock of Eagle Mt., sisters Brittany Paine of Menifee, CA, and Aubrey Hancock of Salt Lake City, brothers James Hancock and Isaac Hancock of Eagle Mt., grandparents, Max and Joyce Hancock of Tooele, UT, and Farron and Alene Harrison of LaVerne, CA, currently in Bolivia. A nephew, a niece, 13 uncles, 11 aunts and 36 cousins.
Those who wish to bid her a final "adieu" may do so at funeral services, Wednesday, July 30th, at the LDS church building on 8273 Simpson Springs Road, Eagle Mountain, Utah. Viewing: 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; Service: 1:00 p.m. Online guest book at wingmortuary.com. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made at http://www.gofundme.com/c32640.
