Kathryn E. (Mueller) Vandenberg, 78, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 13, 2017, surrounded by her family. Kathy was born March 7, 1939 to the late Arthur and Margaret (Krause) Mueller in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Kathy studied nursing in Oshkosh and worked for several years. She married Al Vandenberg on December 26, 1960. In their 56 years of marriage they enjoyed road trips, music concerts, gardening, and relaxing in the backyard by the pool. She also enjoyed reading, sewing (quilting), crafts, knitting, and crosswords. Most of all she enjoyed family time; game nights, hosting Sunday dinners, and supporting her ten grandchildren in their various activities.
Kathy was a member of Bethany United Methodist church. She volunteered with the Ashwaubenon Lioness Club and took pride in making baby quilts and helping out the classroom teachers at Cormier School.
Kathy is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Al; daughters Amy (Dave) Steavpack, Beth (Mike) Simoens, Jennie (Dean) McNeill; Anne (Mark Slusarek) Williams; grandchildren Lauren and Abby Steavpack, Drew, Ryan (fiance Jordi Novo) and Meghan Simoens, Brooke (Josh Schloesser), Ian (Sydney) and Derek McNeill; Ben and AJ Williams; sisters Marianne Busse and Peg Harthun; sisters-in-law Rose (Clyde) Zielke, and Carol Vandenberg, and many nieces and nephews.
