Kathleen F. Owermohle
June 19, 1933 – February 21, 2019
Yarmouth - Kathleen F. Owermohle, 85, passed away peacefully at Bay Square in Yarmouth, Maine, on February 21, 2019, after a long illness. Kathleen was born on June 19, 1933 in the Bronx, New York. She graduated from Blessed Sacrament High School in the Manhattan, NY, in 1951. She married Robert Henry Owermohle, Sr., on January 24, 1953, and they shared a wonderful married life of 59 years, until Bob’s passing on February 11, 2012. Kathleen and family moved from Bergen County, New Jersey, to the Pocono Mountain region of Pennsylvania in 1971. Bob and Kathleen maintained residences in Stroudsburg, PA, and Manahawkin, NJ, until moving to Highland Green in Topsham, Maine, fulltime in 2006. Kathleen is predeceased by her husband, Bob; her parents, James and Kathleen Rowley Wynne; and three of her children, Kristine Frances, Peter Richard, and Elizabeth Kristine Owermohle. Kathleen is survived by her son, Robert H. Owermohle, Jr., and his wife, Lyn, of Saylorsburg, PA, and children Devin of Stroudsburg, PA, Corin of Wind Gap, PA, and 1st Lt. Madalyn Owermohle, U.S. Air Force, of Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea; son, Lt. Col. Kurt S. Owermohle, U.S. Marine Corps (Ret.) and his wife, Elizabeth, of Dumfries, VA, and children Stephen of Charleston, SC, Sarah, of Washington, DC, and Gabrielle Owermohle of Richmond, VA; and daughter, Ellen T. Purpura and her husband, Timothy, of Southbury, CT (formerly of Yarmouth), and children Andrew of Brooklyn, NY, Lindsey of Boston, MA, and Kathleen and husband Petty Officer 3rd Class Brandon Norem, U.S. Navy, and great-grandson Henry William Norem, of Chesapeake, VA. Kathleen is also survived by brothers Donald Wynne of Manahawkin, NJ, and Edward Wynne of Cranberry Lakes, NJ; and numerous nieces and nephews. Kathleen’s family was her highest priority, and her pride and joy, throughout her life. She was devoted to her husband, and there was nothing that she would not do for her nine grandchildren. “My guys,” as she called them, could always count on Grandma’s unconditional love, pride, and unstinting support no matter the question or venture. Kathleen worked hard throughout her life, inside and outside of the home, in partnership with Bob, to provide her family a wonderful home and good educations. Kathleen was also a quick wit, an excellent cook, a masterful knitter, an amazing gardener, and a sharp bridge player. Kathleen and Bob, throughout their 59-year marriage, modeled an ideal of selfless, mutual love and support. In her final years, Kathleen’s miniature Dachshund, Annie, was a faithful and beloved companion. The Owermohle family sincerely thanks both Bay Square at Yarmouth and Community Health and Nursing Service (CHANS) Hospice Care team of Brunswick for their love and compassionate care and support for Kathleen – they were wonderful. The family will celebrate Kathleen’s life at a future date yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to CHANS or Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.

My sympathies and prayers to you all!
I have lots of fond memories of my Cousin, Kathleen, but I remember best the love and support she offered when my father passed away. As a lost 13 year old her kind words and love went right to my soul and have stayed as a warm memory in my heart. Thank You, Cousin!
