Connie and Joshua, so sorry to hear and see this but your mom was a good mom and grandmother. I enjoyed her as a neighbor on Rocklake Ct. I will never forget meeting her and she would say my name is Kathleen, not Mary! Connie please stop and still see me when u are in the area. Denise across the street.

Kathleen was my aunt,my Mother's sister. She visited our house many times as I was growing up. I always enjoyed her visits. She was like my mother, a very nice,sweet lady. Enjoyed listening to the stories her and mother would tell about their childhood. Gary,Linda and Connie may God be with you all during this time. It's very hard losing a mother but remembing the times you had with her will be comforting. Aunt Kathleen you are home now with mom,dad,your brother Michael and your sister Mary. What a reunion.
