In May of 2018, Kathleen was diagnosed with Stage 4 Leiomyosarcoma. In spite of the terminal diagnosis given to her, Kathleen decided to seek treatment to beat her cancer, fighting with incredible determination and grit, seeking out specialist care across the country, and trying every available treatment option. Kathleen died peacefully, in God’s embrace, in October 2020 with her husband and three sons by her side at the time of passing. Kathleen prepared her children well for adult life, and all three have gone on to have successful careers and loving families. Kathleen was a woman of strong Episcopal faith and a loving grandmother to six, developing meaningful relationships with each of her grandchildren. She never put her needs above those around her – we all loved her tremendously and seek to model much of how she lived as an aspiration for our own lives. The legacy she left behind is one of love, forgiveness, compassion, generosity, and humility. We love and miss her every day. It is for these reasons that Kathleen and her family wish to establish this tribute to benefit others who are suffering from this insidious disease.
