Katelyn Anne “Katie” Sabo, 29, a 15-year resident of Edgewater and previously of Upper Marlboro, MD, passed away on August 27, 2019 at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
Born on December 28, 1989 in Washington, DC to Steven and Mary Ann Sabo, Katie was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome at the age of 5. While she lost her vocal ability, Katie didn’t let her affliction hold her back. She touched many lives and hearts because she used her eyes to speak and tell her story. Katie had two loves in her life: music and, most especially, her family. Her nurses and doctors also held a special place in Katie’s heart.
Katie attended Marlton Elementary School and Central Special School. She participated in the Challenger Division Softball League in Upper Marlboro and later was a member of Athletes Serving Athletes. Katie was also a member of Holy Family Catholic Church.
In addition to her parents, Steve and Mary Ann, Katie is survived by three brothers, Nicholas of Edgewater, Christopher of Toronto, Canada and Zachary of Edgewater.
Friends are invited to celebrate Katie’s life with her family from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, September 1st at the Kalas Funeral Home and Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Road, Edgewater, MD. Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11 a.m. on Monday, September 2nd at Holy Family Catholic Church, 826 W. Central Avenue, Davidsonville, MD. Burial will be private.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Rett Syndrome Organization, 4600 Devitt Drive, Cincinatti, OH 45246.
Online condolences and tributes may be offered using the Memory Wall link at the top of this page.

Maryann, Steve, Nicholas, Christopher and Zachary.
How sad to just now hear of the profound loss of your dear special Katie. We first met your amazing family when our preemie Cory, and your preemie Nick, brought us together in 1988. We remember well Katie's arrival and how blessed your family has been over the years. Katie had a full, yet short, life. You kept her active and involved in many school and community activities. She touched many lives and endeared herself to everyone with her bright eyes and beautiful smile. One of our best memories of your family was the June, 2005 week we spent with you at Joni&Friends camp in eastern Pennsylvania. Cory was able to experience many adventures with Katie and Nick.
We send many condolences and prayers to all of you. Cherish all your wonderful memories of your angelic Katie.

Dear Mary Ann and family, I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your Katie. Her picture is that of a little Angel. Take care and count on my prayers for you and your family. Mary Ann Malitz

I am so blessed to know you, Mary Ann, and your family. I have gone with Pam to many of the events you have coordinated on behalf of parents and children with special needs. Katie taught me that every life is precious and meaningful. I am a better person for having learned that lesson. I wish you and your family peace and love during this difficult time, Diana Martin

Mary Ann and Steve,
I just learned of Katie's passing through Ginny Randall. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am remembering the many home visits that you hosted for medical students, and all that the students learned from you and Katie. There are many physicians who have more insight and compassion for their patients because they met and learned from Katie!
Love, Jan Hanson
