Our cherished grandmother, mother, sister, and friend. Kathleen Ann Clayton “Kathy” passed away peacefully in Cottonwood Heights in the comfort of her home surrounded by family on April 12th, 2024 at 65 years after losing her battle to cancer. 

Kathy was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota to her parents Lester and Rose Lentz. Kathy had moved a couple times, but her final destination was Salt Lake City, Utah.
