Kathleen loved spending time with her family, cooking, sharing recipes and interesting stories with her daughter and daughter-in-law. She was in several card clubs and enjoyed playing Yahtzee. Family dinners and going out for dinners was a delightful time for her as well. Kathleen was a reader and loved listening to music. She was a White Sox fan too.

Kathleen was a kind and loving mom to Ray (Linda) Simon and Terri (Jim) Smith. Kathleen had five granddaughters Cheri (Nate) Wolf, Tina (Kevin) Stanley, Stacy (Jason) Brennan, Vicki (Glen) O'Halleran, Lisa (Josh) Rossow and five adoring great grandchildren Simon and Paige Stanley, Sadie, Emma Lynn and Brook O'Halleran. Kathleen is also survived by her sisters-in law Barbara Hansen and Lenore Freund.

She was preceded in death by her siblings, Alvin (Alma) Freund, Alvera (Clemons) Freund, Gerald (Lenore) Freund, Vern (Gert) Freund, her mother and father in law Herbert and Margaret Simon, and her brother and sister in laws Kate and Bob Wayman, Isy and Jim Thompson, Lucille and Jim Wagner, Mary and Jerry Hettermann, Charlie Hansen, and Marge and Carl Elshoff.
