Elizabeth Renae Prewitt
July 9, 1999 ~ May 15, 2020
Energetic, free-spirited, and full of potential are just a few attributes you would use to describe Elizabeth Renae Prewitt. Finding ways to make people smile and capturing an audience from the moment she steps into the room are how people remember this confident young lady. Elizabeth strives for perfection in athletics, art, and education. She is a track-star, an elite gymnast, and a three-time All European cheerleader. She was one of five high school students to have her art displayed at the Nelson Atkins Art Museum and she wanted so much to further her education to become a children's art therapist.
On December 20, 2017, all her hopes, dreams, and aspirations were shattered when she was found lifeless in her apartment having been ASSAULTED & STRANGLED. Paramedics were able to revive her, but she had already suffered massive injuries including a heart attack and anoxic brain injury from lack of oxygen. Ellie continued to recover and make progress until she was admitted to the ICU with pneumonia and health complications. After a long fight, Ellie passed away on Friday, May 15, 2020 at Ogden Regional Medical Center.
Ellie is survived by her parents, John and Jennifer Bartlow; three loving sisters, Makayla Prewitt; Daniela Bartlow; Savanna Bartlow; Grandparents, Patricia and Kenneth McElwee; her favorite uncles, Joey and Chris Allinder; and her good friends, Alex Hankins and Austin Groves. To name a few as Ellie was loved by many and will be truly missed by all.
A memorial service will be held at a later date back in Kansas City, Missouri. Send condolences to gfc-utah.com

What a tragedy. I hope justice is served and you rest in peace beautiful lady.
My heart is heavy with sadness to hear of this. We were just wondering after speaking with you how she was doing. My prayers for you and your family John.
I was Libby's first grade teacher at Sycamore. She was a beautiful little girl with a love for gymnastics and anything involving cartwheels. She had the best smile. She has a special place in my heart. I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers are with you all. Tasha Barr - Sycamore Hills - Independence
Ellie was such an amazing person. Her smile was so genuine, her heart loving, and her presence lit up our classroom. There was never a time Ellie wasn't smiling and bringing joy to others. Her energy and spirit were contagious, so even if you were having a rough day, when Ellie bounced in, you couldn't help but feel better! Ellie, you were such a joy to be around, to have in class, to know and love. I recently found notes and pictures from you while going through a box. They brought back so many fun memories. You are missed and so, so loved. Rest easy, sweet girl. I love you!
I’m so very sorry for your loss prayers are with you during this very tragic time
Ellie was beautiful. I went to high school with her and her beautiful blonde hair and energetic spirit was always something I thought of when I heard her name. It’s so terrible what happened to her and I hope she gets justice to her name. She didn’t deserve this. But now and forever may she be at Peace.
I didn’t know Ellie, but I knew the impact she had on people. Many, many people will be effected and many people will mourn her. Ellie, you were the girl everyone wanted to be with and be friends with. Congratulations on living an amazing life.
My heart is heavy with sadness as this beautiful young woman was an inspiration to all. She was a fighter with all that was her. Ellie you will be missed by all
