Kathryn White Egan
1947 ~ 2012
"I'm learning that the end-of-life experience is just as sweet as the beginning. It isn't easy, but it is a special time to turn to our Savior to find peace in Him and in my precious husband and family."
Kathy Egan, age 64, passed away peacefully at home on April 9, 2012, in Sandy, Utah, surrounded by her husband and all seven children, after a courageous three-year battle with cancer.
She was born on November 8, 1947, in Mesa, Arizona, to John C. White and Elizabeth Phelps White. Kathy met her husband, Robert Marshall Egan, at Brigham Young University, where she earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. Bob and Kathy were married in the Mesa Arizona Temple on December 30, 1970. The family lived in Washington, Georgia, Arizona, Florida and Utah, and Bob and Kathy enjoyed traveling extensively all over the world. Kathy was named Jacksonville, Florida's Mother of the Year on Mother's Day in 1985.
Kathy lived a life of distinction that blessed the lives of many people all over the world. Her priorities were always to put the Lord and His gospel first; her husband, family and others second; and herself third. She was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was a beloved teacher and leader, serving as ward Relief Society President twice, stake and ward Young Women president twice each, as a member of the stake Primary presidency and as an instructor and advisor across all auxiliaries. Kathy served as companion to her husband as he presided over the South Africa Cape Town Mission from 2005 - 2008, and was "mission mother" to more than 400 missionaries from 30 countries. She served as a temple ordinance worker and as an Assistant to the Matron of the Draper Utah Temple from 2010 - 2011.
Kathy was preceded in death by her father and mother and is survived by her brother John (Debbie) White, her sister Debby (Gary) Boyd, her husband, her seven children: Erik (Julie), Ben (Holly), Emily (Lewis) Christian, Betsy (Klint) Keller, Christian (Katie), Kelly (Richard) Mear, and Robby (Kelsey), and 27 grandchildren - with two more on the way.
Funeral services will be conducted on Friday, April 13, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. at the Sandy Granite View Stake Center, 9880 South 3100 East, Sandy. Interment will follow at the Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery. Viewings will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2012, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East 10600 South, Sandy, and prior to the services at the church on Friday morning from 9:00 to 10:30.
The Egan family thanks Kathy's medical team: Dr. Wallace Akerley, Terry Van Duren, R.N., Julie Bylund, N.P., the infusion nurses and all the staff at the Huntsman Cancer Institute and Hospital for their compassion and concern and sustaining her life while enriching her quality of life.
In lieu of flowers, Kathy requested that donations be made to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation:
