Erin Mickelson Walldorf left her earthly life on Monday, March 24, 2014.    She was born on July 17, 1968 as the eldest daughter of Weldon and Julie Mickelson, currently of St. George, Utah.   Raised in Flagstaff, Arizona, she graduated from Coconino High School, and attended Yavapai Community College, where she graduated with a degree in Medical Assistant training.  She married Todd Walldorf in 1990, and was blessed with two beautiful children, Jakob, 17, and Hayden, 12 who currently reside in Toledo, Ohio with their father.

    Sorry for your loss. I was thinking of the last time I saw Erin. It was about this time of year a couple of years ago. She was soo happy. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

    I am so sorry. Though I haven’t seen her since Flagstaff days, it makes our mortality seem so much more real when someone as young as Erin leaves. I pray for her children and for all of you. Much love.
