Katrina was born January 15, 1975, in Phoenix, AZ, daughter of William Lake Berry and Kathleen Ann Berry. Katrina was known for her unmatched beauty both inside and out, which could not be expressed in words, her innocent perspective of the world around her, her blissful contagious laugh and most of all her deep devotion and love for her young daughter Reilly Skye. Katrina loved to sing and laugh and she had a gift of bringing humor and lightness to any situation. She had a kind and loving heart and is profoundly missed. Katrina's life was taken abruptly but she left behind a beautiful legacy, her daughter. Katrina is survived by her daughter, Reilly Skye Berry, parents William Lake Berry and Kathleen Berry, her sisters Razi Ann Berry-Tallman ( David Tallman) and Tara Noel Berry, brother William Lake Berry II (Matthew Knapp) and grandparents Marion Ralph Jenkins and Martha Willliams. Reilly's father, Mitchell Sorkin, preceded Katrina in death.
