  • Greg Hansch

    Her kind soul impacted me and many people. Best wishes and condolences to all her loved ones.

  • Elizabeth

    I never had the chance to get to know Kathleen, but I had the luck of being roommates with Lauren in college. If any part of Lauren’s love, patience, kindness, loyalty, or strength came from her mother, then Kathleen must have been an incredible force. I am so sorry for your loss.

    To Kathi’s Family,

    I am so sad to hear of her passing. I knew her from NHS & was blessed to see her & spend a little time with her in 2015, when I moved back to GR for Spring & Summer. She invited me to the house & actually sent me home with a few things that I am FOREVER grateful. She’sne-of-a-kind” that no other can compare. Everything about her is radiant. Words, tho closely fitting, just can’t define or describe her.

    I pray that God give you peace in the days ahead. Know she sits with Our Heavenly Father and waits till we meet her there & see her again. Godspeed My Friend.


    To The Haehnel Family:

    We were saddened to hear of Kathi’s passing. Her warm smile and welcoming personality will be missed by all who knew her.
    Our hearts and thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time.

    With love,
    Rob and Deborah Young

    What a beautiful soul. She will always be remembered as such. My son was her birthday buddy and Corey loved her very much.
    Our hearts go out to you all. I’m wrapping you in a warm hug surrounded with prayer. From the Family of Laurie Haehnel -Emmons-Sims, our deepest heartfelt sympathy.

  • Kim & Maureen Barringer

    My husband and I never had the opportunity to meet Kathy. We were introduced to her site Kathy’s Krew just recently. Once we started to follow her site it was apparent to us that she fought a couragest battle. Every picture of Kathy you could see her smile and feel the love she had for family, friends and life.
    Our deepest sympathy to all of her family and friends.

  • Jana Baldus
