Along with being a farmer’s wife and homemaker, Kathy also casually worked for Koronis Sports Apparel. She was a member of St. Margaret’s Catholic Church, Catholic United Financial and Christian Women, as well as the Lake Henry American Legion Post #612 Auxiliary.

Kathy was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved spending time with her family and friends. She relished any opportunity to spend time with her grandchildren, whether it was attending their sporting events or being a baby sitter at the drop of a hat. Kathy could never sit still and loved to work on her crafts especially, sewing, embroidery work, quilting, ceramics, crocheting and working on puzzles. She was also an avid gardener and enjoyed canning her vegetables. Occasionally, Kathy liked to let loose and go to the casino with her husband, Linus.

She is survived by her children, Dale of St. Cloud, Rick (Marian) of Lake Henry, Lori (Mark) Lieser of Paynesville, Sherry (Randy) Bertram of Spring Hill, Tami (Jeff) Funk of New Munich; grandchildren, Cody (Megan) Lieser, Grant Lieser, Amanda (Aaron) Thesing, Ashley (Chris) Meyer, Tyler Bertram, Travis Bertram, Logan Funk, Taylor Funk , Eric Sand, Sam (Tara) Sand; four great-grandchildren; sister, Mary (Frank) Bauer, of Richmond; sister-in-law, Mary Ann Meyer, and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

A special thank you to Kathy’s neighbors, Jeff and Jackie Dahl, for their loving and compassionate help and friendship to Kathy and Linus.
