Obituary For Caitlin Kris Wageman

With great sadness and profound love, the family of Caitlin Kris Wageman announces her passing on July 3, 2021. Caitlin passed away peacefully at home after just 25 years on this earth.

Caitlin had a vibrant personality, and her unique sparkle touched the hearts of all those who had the pleasure of meeting her. As a redhead, she was opinionated, outspoken, and feisty at times, but she was also incredibly loving. She was a caretaker by nature and always wanted to care for those around her despite her physical limitations.

Caitlin liked to explore. She enjoyed going to Mud Boggs and Zoos and riding all the rides on the Midway. She was active with PARDS until about 10 years ago when her disability progressed to a point where she could no longer ride. Caitlin also loved music, especially Celine Dion. She could be heard belting out, “My Heart Will Go On” as often as she could. She was funny, and loved to have fun.

In 2012, Caitlin had her wish granted by the Make a Wish Foundation and got to meet her idol, Justin Bieber. She was thrilled to have Justin “tattoo” the leg of her beloved doll – which was also named Justin for a time. Her doll traveled with her everywhere and she loved to buy real baby clothing and accessories for it. She was also able to meet Amber Marshall (Amy from Heartland) and had her tattoo the other leg.

We will miss Caitlin dearly. There is a hole in our hearts left by her passing, but we are comforted that she is no longer in pain.

Caitlin is survived by her mother Anna, father Warren, brother Brennen; grandparents Loreen and Wayne, grandmother Janice Patterson; aunts Krysta, Lorinda, Phyllis, and Grace; uncle Gerald; as well as her beloved Educational Assistant Lisa Boyd.

A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.

We would like to extend a big thank you to all those who have shown their love and support throughout the years. Especially to her teachers and educational assistants at Crystal Park School who made her experience there exceptional.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Anna and family. I was an EA in the Klassy Diner classroom at Crystal Park School and had the pleasure to work with Caitlyn there. She had a smile that brightened any room, a laugh that was contagious and she could run the 'Diner' like no other. She brightened my heart. I will remember her with fondness and a smile. Kim Cunningham or as Caitlyn liked to call me, Ham.

    If you were priviledged enough to know Caitlin you were witness to pure joy. She lived a lifetime in her short years here, her mom made sure of that. I have many memories of Caitlin that make me laugh so hard but might best be not shared here as she was a saucy miss. Anna and family, my sincerest condolences she was one of a kind and i will remember her fondly. Lori Ferris Abbott
