Kathy Jenson Lindholm, 82, former long time resident of Anchorage, Alaska, passed away peacefully in Providence Hospital located in Olympia, Wash., on Jan. 23, 2018, with her husband of 57 years, Marv, holding her hand.
Kathy was born in Westby, Mont., to Jens and Carla Jenson, the youngest child of 13. She grew up in Sidney, Mont., and graduated from Sidney High School. She met Marv in Olympia, Wash., in 1960, and they were married seven months later in Anchorage.
Kathy spent her time enjoying the Alaska wilderness by small plane and track rig, shooting her own caribou, fishing, clam digging, moose hunting and keeping the camp cozy and everyone well fed. She was a stay-at-home mom for two children, enjoyed cross-country skiing, ceramics, sewing, gardening and jam making, and helped to build their home of 29 years in midtown. She was a very loving wife, mother and grandmother, and enjoyed her family greatly. She spent her final three years in Olympia, with Marv, enjoying the many ducks that visited their lakefront home.
She was preceded in death by her parents; 10 brothers; one sister; and many cherished friends.
Kathy is survived by her husband, Marv of Olympia; sister, Merna Brown of Sidney, Mont.; daughter, Vikki (Chris) Stafford; son, Mike Lindholm; and grandchildren, Marissa Sweet-Lindholm, Corey Stafford and Kailey Stafford, all of Anchorage: sister-in-law, Marge Zesiger of Olympia; nephew, Les Zesiger of Olympia; many nieces and nephews; and many close family friends. We will all miss her greatly, until we meet again.
As per her wishes and request, no service will be held. A private family gathering will be held this spring in Sidney, Mont.
