Mike, Shelly and families, I will never be able to fully express the feelings I have had for your mother, grandmother

and great grandmother. She has been my sister-in-law, friend and sister all rolled into one wonderful kind

woman. We shared so many times and memories and she was always there to talk to, listen to and share things

with. As do you, I wish we could have more. I hope you find peace in knowing her faith was strong and she

knew where she was going and that she is resting in the eternal peace she was promised.

Love Aunt Jan

Please accept my sincere condolences in the loss of your mom , grandmother, and great grandmother. I’ve

Known Kate since I was in my late 20’s and she was my sisters sister- in- law. She was one of the kindest most generous people I’ve ever know, would do anything she could for anyone in need, always there to listen or do whatever was needed. She will be missed, but, she’s at peace now after a long rigorous battle. She gave it everything she had right to the end. My thoughts are with all of those who knew and loved her.

Kathy was always a very special aunt to me. I will always remember her as being very kind and personable to me. She let me know that she cared for me, which was a big deal to me. I will never forget when I was grade school there was a room in my grandma & grandpa’s home that was off limits. She would tell me not to go in there because there was an old lady that would hit me in the head with a frying pan if I did. Being young I believed her. 🙂 I loved her and know that one day I will see her again which will be very special. God bless Mike and Michelle & grandkids, also all of her brothers and sisters, I know she will be greatly missed.
