Celebrate Brenna's Life

Brenna’s choice to return to Heavenly Father was a surprise to us.  She was just getting over a cold and she was so excited to return to school this week.  Her bipap slipped off during the night and her spirit became free.  She is free to run and play soccer, swim, eat and swallow, sing and dance.  We are so happy for her to enjoy all the things her mortal body wouldn’t allow.  But, oh, she did enjoy life as much as she could.  She loved school immensely.  She loved little children and animals.  She loved church, Young Womens and writing in her journal.  She absolutely loved to have friends and play games and watch movies and, most of all, laugh.

We will surely miss Brenna, but we are very happy for her.  We know that we will have that very special angel in our family forever.  We were so blessed to be her parents and be able to share her life experiences with her during her short stay on earth.  We are soooo grateful for those we met along this journey who helped us during the difficult times.  We will cherish those relationships always.

This is her obituary that is in the Deseret News today:


Brenna Racquel Augat – January 5, 1993 ~ November 5, 2006 – A very special angel left our home on earth to again be in the arms of Heavenly Father.  Brenna was born in Salt Lake City to Gordon and Racquel Augat.  She passed away peacefully at home with her loving family.  She bravely fought an inoperable brainstem tumor for over four years and was taken by an anoxic episode-a side effect of the tumor.  Brenna blessed many lives with her loving and accepting spirit.  She was always a joy to be around and loved making people laugh.  Her smile and laugh were infectious.  She dearly loved school and was a straight ‘A’ student at South Hills Middle school where all who worked with her made her learning experience enjoyable.  Brenna is the oldest of five siblings, Jordan (12), Aaron (10), Kaleb (8), and Hannah (6).  Her dogs, Shep and Skipper, and her kitty, Trixie, will miss her lap.  She will be dearly missed by her family including her grandparents, Ute & Heinz Augat, Joyce and Chris Hicks, Janice and Bill Sipes, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, step-families and an abundance of friends.  Funeral services will be Thursday, November 9, 1 p.m. at the Stake Center located at 4501 West 11800 South. A viewing will be held one hour before the services and also Wednesday, November 8, at Broomhead Funeral Home 12590 South 2200 West, Riverton, from 6-8 p.m.  Interment at Wasatch Lawns South Valley, 13001 South 3600 West in Riverton.

Love and Tissues,

 The Augat Family
