Winifred Beatrice Wolfgramm, 11, returned home to our Heavenly Father on November 30th, 2022. Winnie was born on the second of May, 2011, to Marcus and Catherine (Peterson) Wolfgramm in Salt Lake City. She is survived by her parents, sister Hattie, her brothers Tu’i and Otto, her grandparents Fred and Elizabeth (Gilgen) Wolfgramm and Curtis and Patricia (Dymond) Peterson, and countless other heartbroken cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, teammates, classmates and neighbors.

Winnie found expression and joy in many things: mirror makeup tutorials, learning the latest TikTok dance moves, cooking with her grandmothers and playing the piano, to name just a few. She excelled at creative writing and science at school, but will be best remembered by her Challenger and Bonneville teachers and classmates as a quick and loyal friend.

The soccer field is where Winnie found her greatest passion. She was a fierce competitor (often to the amusement of her coach and mother) but quick to help her teammates, sub in for any team that was short a player and quietly impressing and infuriating her competitors with a “legendary” stop-start. Winners want the ball!

The world was Winnie’s playground. From powder turns at Alta, boogie boarding at Newport Beach, river rafting in Alaska, soccer tournaments in Las Vegas, catching fireflies with her great-grandmother Bea in Pennsylvania to sledding with her brothers at Papa and Noni’s or “organizing” at Grandma Liz and Grampa Fred’s or Dave and Tracy’s, Winnie was fast to find adventure wherever she went.

In eleven short years, Winnie learned to share her grace and kindness with those both young and old. She seamlessly connected with anyone around her. Her sweet and nurturing spirit will always be cherished by all whose lives she touched, and all of her friends—she had many—will never forget her beautiful smile, infectious laugh or heartfelt hugs. Winnie embodied an easy-going, thoughtful attitude; she brought an independence and wisdom well beyond her years. Her authentic nurturance was a humbling example even for many adults.

Winnie will be greatly missed by all who knew her, but especially by her big sister and best friend, Hattie.

The Wolfgramm and Peterson families wish to extend their most heartfelt gratitude to the hundreds of people and astonishing outpouring of love, support, and sorrow they have shared since Winnie’s passing. They would also like to thank the first responders, caregivers at Primary Children’s Hospital, Larkin Mortuary staff and Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park.

Viewing and funeral services will be held at the Rose Park North Stake Center (1155 N 1200 West, Salt Lake City). Viewings will be held Sunday, December 4th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and again Monday, December 5th from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., followed by a private family viewing. Funeral services will be commence at noon. A private family interment service will take place Tuesday, December 6th at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park. Winnie would love for you to arrive in bright colors—sky blue is her favorite.

In lieu of flowers, remember to tell those around you that you love them. Tell them easily and often.

Winnie, we hope you are still dancing, laughing and making those around you smile.

We love you so much, WB!

Having watched the love that you shared while we went to school together, I know that love is the life force of your family tree. The belief, and hope of a promised heavenly reunion are a comfort as are family members that can lean on one another.

Was sadden to hear about the accident of this little girl who had so much to live for! I know she went to heaven and is in HF's care. Sounds like she was an angel while on earth. Hope her family is comforted and they can feel her little spirit nearby.
