Hannah Kathleen Wilkerson died at the age of 26, at St Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction on the morning of March 19, 2021. Hannah is survived by her parents, Hillary Hunsinger and Red Wilkerson of Dolores, and her brothers Kyle and Jake Wilkerson of Cortez, and Joe Wilkerson of Liberty, TX.
Hannah underwent multiple surgeries on her digestive system. The trauma and scaring took a heavy toll and her body simply gave out. I know there are many people in this community whose lives she touched and that they will share our grief at this tragic loss. We are trying to take comfort in knowing that Hannah's beautiful mind and spirit are finally free of the body that held her captive. She can dance and sing and talk until she finally runs out of words. For those of us she left behind, words cannot express how very much we will miss her.
