Kathy loved spending her free time working on the flower beds in her yard, spending time on the deck enjoying the gift of her labors and watching her flowers grow. Kathy loved reading books and watching movies.

Her most special memories were spending time with her children and grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband Ron; children, Kerri, Aaron (Kate), and Christy (Ron) Knutowski; three grandchildren: Sydney, Elijah and Jacob; as well as her siblings, Mary Lou (Harold) Becker, Dennis (Arline) Schueller, Sue Rassel and Bruce Schueller; nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Ronald McDonald House would be appreciated.

Kathy and her family offer a special thank you to Dr. William Bradley and other staff at the Kraemer Cancer Center for helping her fight the battles presented the past few years.
