Kathleen was born in Star Lake, New York to the late Robert W. and Norma J.(Jones) Lakely. When she was four her father’s military career brought the family to Abilene where they settled and planted roots. Kathleen graduated from Abilene High School in 1986.

She was an active volunteer with many of Blue Cross & Blue Shields community outreach initiatives. She volunteered with the Ben Richey Boys Ranch Chili Superbowl and Cookoff for over 25 years where she worked with the judging. Kathleen was quite, and reserved, she enjoyed being in the background but once she got to know you she could become quite talkative. She was a nurturing animal lover. She will be missed but memories of special times shared will live on.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

She leaves to cherish precious memories her sister; Maureen; aunts, Marilyn Mulhollan, and Doris Hall; numerous cousins; other relatives, and friends.
