LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) -

If you don't remember Vanna Dorn's name, perhaps her smile provokes your memory.

Back in 2000, WIS introduced you to Dorn when she was nine years old and struggling with heart problems. She had just received a heart transplant.

Dorn's family tells WIS she died early Monday morning. She was 23 years old. The heart she received in 2000 kept her alive for nearly 14 years.

According to Caughman-Harman Funeral Home, Dorn's funeral is Friday at 2 p.m. at the home's Lexington Chapel. Friends will be received at 1:30 p.m. Friday. She will be buried in Woodbridge Memorial Park.
