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.

Kathy was one of my dearest friends. We were in nursing school together. She always had the sweetest disposition. I will miss her, even though we got together only once or twice a year since I moved away. I am so sorry for your loss, Al and family and for our little group of nursing classmates.
