Karlee Hallahan


Karlee Jo Hallahan, 21, Vienna, passed away Friday, Jan. 25, 2020, at her residence

She was born June 26, 1998, to Jacob “Jake” and Camelia Dawn (Vinson) Hallahan, in Jefferson City.

Karlee was a 2016 graduate of Vienna High School. She served as a part time volunteer secretary at the Visitation Inter-parish School in Vienna. She was most recently honored by the Meramec Regional Planning Commission for her volunteer work.

Karlee was diagnosed at birth with Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare genetic skin disease. When complications from Karlee’s skin disease reached a level of irreversible progression, she worked with her parents to create a bucket list of adventures. With generous support from the local and surrounding communities, Karlee was able to fulfill her dreams of taking a hot air balloon ride, visiting the Missouri wine country and traveling to Paris, France.

She was preceded in death by great-grandparents, Glen and Camelia Thompson, Robert Hallahan and Roger Bloomfield.

She is survived by parents, Jake and Camelia; brothers, Tyler and Tanner Hallahan; and grandparents, Luke and Toni ‘Nana’ Buechter of Belle, George and Mary Sue Vinson of Rolla and Shawn and Missy Hallahan of Troy.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, Feb. 1, from 2-6 p.m. at the United Methodist Church of Vienna. Charitable donations may be made to the Karlee Jo Hallahan Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Arrangements entrusted to Sassmann’s Chapel, Belle.
