Kaysa Marie Whittenberger

April 9, 1981

May 9, 2014

Kaysa Marie Whittenberger, née Dallum, slipped from this world to the next much too early on May 9 in the arms of her husband and best friend, Peter Whittenberger. Kaysa is the daughter of John Dallum and the late Ilene "Mike" Christensen Dallum.

Kaysa leaves behind a beloved sister, Jocelyn Brunkhard, and her husband Andy; brother Rocky Dallum and his wife Becky; brother Toby Dallum and wife Kelly; a step-mother, Reverend Dorothy Dallum; and aunts, uncles, cousins, a niece, and nephews. In addition, she leaves behind her Whittenberger family: Kathleen, Brock, Michael, Susie, Stephen, Meg, a niece, and nephews, to whom she was a much-loved daughter, sister, and aunt.

Kaysa was born the youngest of four children in Havre, Montana on April 9, 1981. She attended elementary school in Cascade, Montana and junior high and high school at Central Linn in the Willamette Valley. Kaysa was active in music, drama, and student government. Kaysa graduated from the University of Montana in 2004 with degrees in political science and secondary education. After college, Kaysa worked as a legislative assistant and managed a successful campaign for an Oregon House seat.

Education was a great force in her life. She was a teacher for the Nevada Connections Academy and was devoted to her students. Kaysa loved to read and garden and was a budding musician. She was outgoing, opinionated, funny, fun-loving, and happy. Her greatest passion was her life at home with her pets and the love of her life, her husband Peter.

Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of her life will take place at Walton's Sierra Chapel (875 West Second Street, Reno, Nevada) on Saturday, May 17 at 11:00 am. A donation to the SPCA of Northern Nevada (4950 Spectrum Boulevard, Reno, NV 89512) would honor Kaysa.
