Kari Ann Lee passed away peacefully in her sleep at 4:32 AM on Tuesday, January 16th, 2018, after a courageous battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Kari was born on February 5th, 1985 in Denver, Colorado to her proud parents, Jim & Faye Weickum. She was married to Tyler Lee on October 13th, 2007. She will forever be remembered by her husband and their boys, Brayden (8) and Camden (3), by her parents, and by her older siblings, Christie Weickum, Wendy Hill, and Scott Weickum.

Kari was a long-time resident of Strasburg, Colorado after graduating from Strasburg High School in 2003 as Valedictorian. She went on to receive a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing from Regis University in 2007, again graduating in the top of her class.

She knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a nurse and spent almost eight years in the profession that she treasured before being diagnosed with AML in March 2015. She taught all of us how to face adversity head-on with grace & dignity. She will forever live on in the hearts of all who loved her.
