Katelyn Mariah Smith (Utley), age 21, of Bloomfield, NM was born on December 28, 1997 to Shane and Mandy Utley and was called home much too soon on June 10, 2019 in Bloomfield, NM.
Katelyn lived to make her family happy and she loved her husband, Michael, and daughter, Maggie Ann so very much. It was her goal in life to be the best mom, wife, daughter, and sister. She did this beautifully. Her most favorite verse was 1 Corinthians 16:14 Let everything you do be done in love. She truly lived and loved this way. Her passions included photography, animal rescue, painting, making bows and necklaces for her sweet Maggie, being her brother Brodie's biggest fan, and giving to anyone in need.
Katelyn is survived by her husband Michael Smith, daughter Maggie Ann Smith, parents Mandy Utley, Shane and Beth Utley, brother Brodie Utley, step-sister Jessica and step-brother Michael. In-laws, Brad and Luella Smith, sibling's in-law, Chad and Chantelle Smith. She is also survived by her loving grandparents, Linda Harper and Freddie Garcia, Bud and Denise Harper, Frank Utley, Roy and Dorothy Reese, and great-grandparents Don and DeeAnn Lassle, Stella and Joe Mercure. She also had a very large extended family and many friends that she loved so much!
She was preceded in death by some of her most favorite people, her Grandma Ann Utley, Great-Grandma Ida Garcia, Great-Grandpa George Harper, and Uncle Butch Harper. We know she is rejoicing in heaven with them and many other family and friends who left too soon.
