Friends and family gathered Wednesday evening to celebrate the life of Rocky Mountain High freshman Kathryn Marshall, who passed away Friday at the age of 15.

Hundreds of family and friends gathered at the Rocky Mountain High softball field Wednesday night to celebrate the life of Kathryn Marshall, a 15-year-old freshman who died Friday afternoon.

Rocky Mountain head softball coach Brian White said she was admitted to the hospital Friday morning and died later that day. In her obituary, the death was attributed to natural causes.

Marshall played on Rocky Mountain’s varsity softball team and as a member of the Boise Blast. She also was an avid skier and was remembered as a loving teenager who got along with everyone.

“All her teachers loved her in class. She was just a pleasure to be around, wherever you were at,” White said. “She was just a great person. All these people loved her.”

Another memorial will be held at 2 p.m., May 24 at Settlers Park (softball field 8) in Meridian. Donations can be made in her honor at any US Bank branch.
