I had the pleasure to work for many years with Kathy at JCPenney where she was an excellent buyer, staff leader and team member. She was fair, honest and her crew were devoted to her. Over the years we have lost contact but every time I&ve heard a Stevie Nicks song I&ve thought of her! God bless you, Kathy.

Gil and Ashley,

Our family want to extend to you our heartfelt sympathy during this most difficult time. We feel your pain, and want to help in anyway we can. Just know, we are a phone call or text away.

Kathy was my friend, and I miss her so much. She was a lady that many looked up to because she was so strong. Her will to fight her battle was stronger than any other I have witnessed. Seeing her last week has actually made my heart more at ease bc she was so at peace with her decision. I&m so glad I was able to visit with her and tell her I loved her.

If either of you ever need anything, a meal, a hug, etc....please don&t hesitate to call me. I&m here for you both.

Love,
Kathy, Marty and Aubrey

Gil, Ashley and Craig,

We just wanted to send you our condolences on your loss. Kathy was such a beautiful person and had so much courage during her illness over the years and was so determined to beat it. Unfortunately, that wasn&t all her decision. Lori would always keep us posted on her condition and we were so unhappy when we got her call on Sunday morning. We were leaving for mass and after hearing the news, offered our mass for Kathy and all of you that day. Please continue to keep in touch with Lori as she was such a dear friend to Kathy and is also having a difficult time with all of this. We will keep you in our prayers.

With Sympathy,

Larry and Sandy Litzelman
