Kathleen S. Liebherr, ‘Kay,’ 77 |
Mar. 4, 1941 -- Jan. 25, 2019
Kathleen S. Liebherr, “Kay,” passed away on Friday, Jan. 25, 2019. She was 77 years old. Kathleen was born on March 4, 1941, in Milwaukee, Wis., to Harry and Mable (nee Schimelfenig) Willing.
Kathleen was a longtime member of St. John Lutheran Church, Fredonia. She was known to love chocolate and enjoy a good laugh. Spending time listening to hip hop music, while sitting in the back seat of her Rav 4 as her daughter Lori chauffeured her around Wisconsin for specialty foods and treats, was a treasured pastime. One of Kathleen’s favorite sayings was, “Remember I’m an only child.”
Kathleen is survived by her daughters Lori K. Wick, Julie (Dimitri) Stamatiou and Shelley (Robert) Lutz; stepchildren Denise (Ray) Pausback and Keith (Tracy) Liebherr; grandchildren Jessica (Clint) Turner, Christopher Lutz, Brett (Lauren) Lutz, Stamati Stamatiou and Stephanie Stamatiou; five step-grandchildren; great-grandchildren Olivia Ray, Autumn Rose Turner and Griffin Lutz; and step-great-grandson Nathan Lecher. She is preceded in death by her parents and husband, Kurtis Liebherr.
