Kathleen loved her family very much, dedicating her time and energy to being a wife and mother, first and foremost. She cherished her children and embraced every moment with them, choosing to stay home to raise and homeschool her 4 children before restarting a career in healthcare administration. She was incredibly hard-working, determined, and loved learning new things.

Kathleen lived a vibrant life with her family and friends. It wasn’t hard to tell she was in a room by her enthusiastic laugh and dynamic personality. Kathleen loved sunshine, being at the beach, and gardening; but most importantly she loved having an active role in her kids’ activities. From volunteering at all their church events to local sports committees, she enjoyed working towards bettering whatever her family was involved in.
