Coralynn Eve Sobolik was born in Decorah, IA, on July 18, 2017, daughter of Paul and Meagan (Novotny) Sobolik.  She was little sister to Maycee and Oliver.  Coralynn was a loving little girl, who liked to give out kisses, and had an infectious laugh.  She enjoyed watching for the school bus, often asking “Where’s Sissy?”  Coralynn had a mischievous side too. She was known to steal her big sisters Barbie dolls, and pour out Lucky Charms for the marshmallows.  Coralynn loved being outside blowing bubbles and chasing kitties and puppies.  She liked bubble baths, wearing her boots (or anyone’s shoes she could fit in), and listening to “Baby Shark” doo doo…  Some of Coralynn’s favorite foods were popsicles, green beans, pickles, and putting raspberries on her fingertips then eating them off.

Even though Coralynn was so young, she made a huge impact on the world.  Coralynn was able to donate her heart and save a 1 year old little boy, her liver saved a 1 year old little girl, and her kidneys went to help a 41 year old lady.   

Coralynn is survived by her parents Paul and Meagan Sobolik, big sister Maycee, big brother Oliver, paternal grandmother Becky Dunn, paternal grandfather Larry (Denise) Sobolik, maternal grandparents Randy and Pamela Novotny, paternal great grandparents Art and Bev Bina, aunt Melissa (Brad) Brevig and their children (Coralynn’s cousins) Madison, Kylie, and Emmalee, uncle Michael Novotny, aunt Nancy Sobolik, and many great aunts and uncles.

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather Jim Dunn, paternal great grandparents Donald Sobolik and Nancy Sobolik, maternal great grandparents Virginia Madden, and Ernie and Helen Novotny, maternal great uncles Mike Novotny, Thomas Madden, and Bob Madden.
