The Story

Often our loved ones leave us too early in life. Solace is in knowing they are at peace and in good company. After battling cancer, at age 69 on January 8, 2016, from her life long home town of Chicago, Kathy joined her good company. Kathy joins her lifelong love and husband of 49 years, Ronald, her daughter Beth Ann (survived by Steve), parents Lawrence and Julia, and brothers Edward (survived by Barbara) and James.

Kathy is survived by her siblings Mary Jane (Jerry), Cecelia and Patrick (Karen). Kathy’s love was always unwavering for her children (surviving her) Dawn, Dean (Phyllis), and David (Julie), grandchildren Richard, Freddie, Amanda (Alex), Olivia and Carmella, and great grandson Michael.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
