Born on Sept. 7, 2007, in Carroll, she was the daughter of Christopher and Jannelle (Bryan) Satterwhite. Hailey had just finished the fourth grade at Adams Elementary and was in Mrs. Perrin’s class. She was a vibrant 10-year-old who loved collecting toys, playing video games, playing the guitar and taking lessons from Guy, going for motorcycle rides with her Dad, and playing with her little brother, Connor. In 2012, Hailey was diagnosed with aplastic anemia and had a bone marrow transplant at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. Her bone marrow donor was her brother, Connor, and the procedure was a success. She began to experience health problems again in 2016. She was diagnosed with Dyskeratosis congenita, a genetic condition that affected her organs. Her courageous battle ended peacefully on July 5, 2018, at Children’s Hospital in Omaha with her Mom and Dad at her side while awaiting a lung transplant. Hailey was a happy and spunky girl who loved people and always had a smile on her face.

Hailey is survived by her parents, Chris and Jannelle Satterwhite, of Carroll; her brother, Connor; her paternal grandparents, Lloyd and Pam Satterwhite, of Emmetsburg, Iowa; her maternal grandparents, Brad and Cathy Bryan, of Urbana, Missouri; her paternal great-grandparents, Edward and Joanne Tjemeland of Fort Dodge and Ardith Satterwhite of Arkansas; her maternal great-grandparents, Charles and Joanne Bryan of Avon, South Dakota; her aunts and uncles: Matt Satterwhite (Carlye) of Cumming, Iowa, Eric Satterwhite of Des Moines, Ben Satterwhite of Emmetsburg, Curtis Olsen (Caroline) of McMinnville, Tennessee, and Becky Bryan of Turman, Minnesota; and several cousins including Braxton and Maddux Satterwhite.
