  1. TO ALL OF KATHY’S FAMILY,
    SHE WAS TOO YOUNG, I HAVE KNOWN HER ALL MY LIFE. WE PLAYED TOGETHER AND VISITED THE KLANCER HOME ON A REGULAR BASIS AND OF COURSE GLORIA’S HOUSE. EVERY TIME I WOULD RUN INTO HER, SHE WAS SMILING, HAPPY AND UPLIFTING! SHE WAS MY FRIEND AND I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HER WITH A SMILE. MAY GOD GRANT HER PARDON AND PEACE. MAY THE HOLY SPIRIT BRING YOU COMFORT AND PEACE. GOD BLESS, SHARON

  2. Kathy and I were classmates together for many years through the St. Marys Area Public School system, class of ’76. Kathy was always so positive and kind to all of us who went to school with her. She was warm, funny and armed with a ready smile for everyone. Kathy was one of God’s bright and shining lights.

  3. My deepest condolences go out to Kathy’s family. I knew Kathy through her old friend Paula Hanna. My family is the one that adopted Paula’s daughter, Jaime. Kathy was Jaime’s godmother. I have some great memories of Kathy. She was a very fun-loving and kind lady. Sending up healing prayers… Rest in peace Kathy…

  4. You have my deepest sympathy. Kathy was a great and kind lady. Will always remember the good times we shared in our younger days. Rest In Peace Kathy. Tina (Mertz) Sorg

  5. Dear Tina, Nick and John, I am so sorry. I’ve known Kathy for many, many years and know that she was very giving and loyal to those she loved. She will be greatly missed. Sending you all prayers for peace and strength.

  6. I met Kathy only once at the family reunion in St Marys, the first time I visited my relatives in the States. It was a short encounter, but I remember her as a kind and gentle soul. May she rest in peace.
