Kathy and I didn't know one another well. She was a fellow 1968 graduate of Burlington High School. I remember Kathy from that time as being a cute girl with a sweet smile. May God our Father comfort you all. Linnea Riepe Wells Cashmore
Kathy I may have only know you for a few months but in that time I gained an amazing friend. I always enjoyed our visits. I hope you are at peace and enjoying seeing those you lost. I will forever love and miss you. Rest easy my dear friend and I will see you again one day!
I’ll never forget this adventure with Kathy . WLS radio station out of Chicago was giving away tickets to an Elvis concert that was that night .Kathy and I both listened all day to the radio until finally it came time for the giveaway well much to my amazement I won the tickets! I called Kathy screaming I Won I WON. We both called our Moms to come and pick up our kids. Called the airport and were lucky enough to get seats on the 5 pm flight to O’Hare . From there we grabbed a cab to take us to the Mmerchandise Mart to pick up the tickets . The cabbie dropped us off at the concert center . This concert was just a few months before Elvis died but we had the time of our life. After the concert we grabbed a cab to take us to the train depot where we caught the last train of the evening and stayed with a friend of Kathy s that lived in a suburb. The next morning that gal took us to the Amtrak Station and we travelled back to Burlington. 🕺
The world has lost a truly loving ,caring, giving and thoughtful person. We will forever remember the many weekend nights playing Trivial Pursuit, eating pizza, gorging on chocolate and just having fun times with Kathy and Jacob.
We will miss you Kathy!
With love ,
Kylene, Danny , Claire & Margaret Tillotson
Mom, I hope that you have finally found peace and are reunited with Uncle Ron, Grandma and Grandpa. I will miss you, and our Saturday evening phone calls.
Mom, my heart hurts for you and us, but I am happy you are finally at peace and with your parents. No more suffering. I will always love you.
Kathy was a high school classmate. We will miss her happy smile.
Kathy exhibited empathy, gentleness, kindness, and patience in assisting students in my classroom. Her positive and cooperative attitude was appreciated. She and Jacob were helpful at the end of the school year. Brenda Monfils
