Memories Timeline


  1. I’m shocked to her of Kathy death. She was such a wonderful person. We would talked frequently at St. Peter’s Church. May she Rest in Peace. ‘

  2. I am deeply saddened to hear about the sudden loss of Kathy. She was a good friend to me. Deepest sympathy to Kathy’s family. Dora Bakich

  3. Dear Deb & Rick and family, Please know of my deepest sympathy and prayerful support as you grieve your loss. Love & prayers, Stan Tuchalski

  4. Kathy and I were friends for a long time. We met in 1956 in first grade at Millsop Elementary where I attended for a few years. We reconnected and became good friends at Madonna. After high school, we went in different directions but reconnected again in 1995 and for the past 25 years met for lunch monthly or whenever we could. She was a good person with an independent kind of spirit. She had a lively sense of humor and that gift kept me laughing whenever we got together. At our last lunch in June we laughed about turning 70 and how we couldn’t believe it! Although I can’t help focusing on my grief and my loss, I know that her family is suffering and I send my heartfelt condolences to her parents, her son and his family, her sisters, her niece and nephew and her grandchildren. We are all going to miss her so much.

  5. To the Kucan family….my deepest condolences to all of you. I have fond memories visiting as I was growing up.

  6. So sorry to learn of Kathy’s passing. My dad, John Porec, was friends with Mac. My dad was visiting with Mac when he found out about the puppies. Kathy had a Lhasa Apso dog who was about to have puppies. She didn’t know if the dog was going to have pure breed or mixed because the dog apparently had been with both! My mom agreed to take a puppy either way. So, we got Nikki and she appeared to be full Lhasa Apso but there was no DNA testing at that time. We loved that Nikki! She was beautiful and had such a nice disposition. Whenever my mom and Kathy saw each other they would laugh about the puppies. God bless Kathy’s family. Sincere condolences from the Porec family.

  7. Oh my, so sorry to here of our loss of a family member. Great memories as we grew up. Godspeed my cuz and say hello to our family. Love, thoughts and prayers to all.

  8. Kathy was a kind, caring person. I have such wonderful memories of our times together. Praying that God will provide comfort to her family as you grieve her death. Kathleen Katsorchis
