Kathryn Gerth Daspit, beloved sister, mother, grandmother, and friend, passed away on Sunday, July 7, 2019 at her home with family. She was a native of New Orleans for 33 years, and has been a resident of Slidell for the last 41. To share a smile and laugh, Kathryn was always ready with a joke even if it was at her own expense (or one you had heard a thousand times). Kathy was the eldest daughter of the late Ruland and Dorothy Gerth. She has survived by her sister, Nancy Penny, one time husband, Edwin Daspit and their 3 children (Noah, Jon & Nancy) as well as her 6 grandchildren. Her life will be celebrated with a small service on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd., New Orleans, at 2:00 PM. The family invites you to share your thoughts, fond memories, and condolences online at www.lakelawnmetairie.com

Noah, Jon and Nancy, I was so sorry to read that your Mom had passed away. Mr. Jerry and I were talking about all of you just a few weeks ago. I don't know if any of you remember us but we were your next door neighbors on Princeton Avenue in Metairie. We have a lot of memories from all of you and Connie and Michael, more Michael, growing up and playing together. We send our deepest sympathies for your loss. Jerry and Jackie Higgins

Nancy, my deepest sympathy to you and the family on Kathy's passing. I wish I had seen the notice in the paper sooner - I would have attended the service. I have fond memories of our childhood years together. My heart goes out to you.

Nancy you are probably the only one that remembers us. Dot and Ruland and you two sweet girls grooming the dogs, walking the dogs and the fun shows. We were so blessed to know such a wonderful family. Our love to you. Jo and Rene Rizan

Kathy was the best cousin anyone could have!! She got me my first job and we worked together for a number of years. She was always ready to do crazy things and always had my back!!! I had bought my first car and realized I couldn’t drive a stick shift!!! She came to my rescue and got me and my car safely home!! Had quite a few adventures together growing up. She will surely be missed!!
