Anyone that had the pleasure of having this beautiful young woman in their life will never forget what her presence and infectious laughter brought to a room when she walked in. I am so terribly sorry that you had to endure what you did Bea and her family as well. I will always remember the memories of long ago and hope these bring comfort to all that are left here to pick up the pieces and move forward. The only comfort right now is knowing she is peaceful and free of pain. Sending unending hugs and tons of love to you Bea, we will always keep your memory alive! Xoxo. Mary and Bill

The passing of a loved one is always hard. There are no words that are ever right. For me, it was a pleasure working with her for a brief period in time as I started my new career. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, your family, and friends.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I will miss a Chat buddy at work. I am blessed to have known Kathy with her funny and at times, no-nonsense comments. Kathy leaves behind a loving family whom she thinks the world of. Sincere condolences to Jeff and John.

Heaven's stock just went up tremendously! Kathy lit up a room just by being in it! We have too many wonderful memories to pick just one. But we will never forget the weekends away with her & Jeff (and the other Allstate troublemakers!) Eight of us crammed into a converted garage in Delavan named "Rose Bud" sharing one bedroom.
