Kathleen’s Story

Site created on June 20, 2020

Welcome to our CaringBridge website for Kathleen. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place regarding her health journey. 

As some of you know, Kathleen was admitted Friday, 6/12 for an initial round of surgeries to address her most recent health issues. We've posted a timeline of events in the "Journal" section, including the initial diagnoses and surgical plan. It's been a long road to date and  there's a long road ahead, but we'll continue to post updates here with any new information we get from her hospital stay.

We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Hello everyone,

We will be hosting a virtual Celebration of Life for Kathleen tomorrow, Tuesday the 14th at 4:00 pm Eastern Time/1:00 pm Pacific Time.

We will be using the Zoom webhosting app to host the celebration. We encourage all who are not familiar with Zoom to download the app prior to the service, HERE. You can refer to THIS LINK for instructions on how to use the platform and join our "meeting". Link and details below.

Due to the size of the virtual gathering, we will be disabling video for all participants except for those speaking. We will be sending out a "program" ahead of the call.  If you would like to share a favorite memory of Kathleen, we will allow a few minutes at the start of the service for you to comment them in the chatbox so everyone may read them and so we can download the service and kind words.

We appreciate everyone's flexibility and understanding during this crazy time, and are thankful for you all helping us honor our mother, wife, sister and friend, Kathleen.
