Our sister, Kathleen, loved beautiful things. Her home reflected this through her doll collection, the art pieces on display, the art that she created, the furnishing of her home, and her love of flowers. She was always on hand to help her family with painting, wall papering and decorating advice. We could always trust her to tell us exactly what she thought—whether we wanted to hear it or not. Kathy was a career federal employee, a member of Let’s Play Dolls Club, and her parents’ caregiver for many years. More than anything, she cherished her family and special friend, Sue. Her place in our hearts will never heal. We know that she is making heaven more beautiful with her presence.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Giles and Rosemary Richardson; and her brother, Thomas G. Richardson.
Surviving is her son, John G. Giese;
Her sisters, Maureen (Eugene) Kufskie,
and Patricia (Lloyd) Pulcher;
her brothers, Donald (Sandra) Richardson,
and Lawrence (Kathy) Richardson;
nieces, Mary Beaudry, Sara Richardson,
and Christine Sykes;
nephew, Justin Richardson;
When spring comes, plant a sunflower in Kathleen’s memory. She would love that! Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.rennerfh.com.
Funeral: As per Kathleen’s wishes, cremation was held. A private family service will be held at a later date.
My dear sister Kath, I cannot believe that you are no longer here. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. I will love you always and you will be in my heart forevermore.
