Kathleen Marie Carlson
June 5, 1952 – September 10, 2020
Our sweet Mom, Kathleen “Kathy” Marie Carlson (Schoenwolf), was born on June 5, 1952 and sadly passed away on September 10, 2020. Mom was born to Elaine and Raymond Shoenwolf of Worth, IL who preceded her in death.
Our Mom was loved deeply by her husband of 48 years, William Carlson, and her three daughters (Sheri Martin, Terri Sollenberger and Tammy Szakal). Mom had nine grandchildren (Melody, Wilah, Luxen, Kinsie, Ryler, Braelyn, Lanac, Brexton and Everleigh) who she adored and would protect above all else. Mom was the type of Grandma who was always up for spending time with the kids and would spend hours coloring, playing, chatting and swimming in the lake with them once we got her in!
She was a friend to everyone and a fan of the simple things in life. Our Mom loved watching football, shopping and being surrounded by her family. Mom was often the funniest person in the room and always had a story to tell and an opinion to share. Mom enjoyed true crime, big news stories and she always knew the latest about what was going on, whether in the family or in the world.
Growing up we’ll always remember Mom being along the sidelines, snacks in hand, and never missing an event of ours. Our Mom was our forever safe place, our constant protector and our home. We, her children, could do no wrong in her eyes and her constant and full support of us never wavered.
Our dear Mom will be terribly missed and forever loved. She will remain the constant, light of our family who we know lives on within all of us.
