Kathleen "Kathy" O'Daniel 1955 - 2009 Kathleen "Kathy" O'Daniel was taken suddenly from her family and friends on September 14, 2009, to be home with her Lord and Savior. Kathy was born March 1, 1955 in Dayton, Ohio. She spent time growing up in Ohio and Yorba Linda, California, and lived with her husband and family in Bakersfield and Hemet, CA and Olympia, WA, finally ending up in Rohnert Park, CA in 2006. She is survived by her husband, Chuck; daughters, Kacee, Erin, and Kelcee O'Daniel; sons, Timothy and Michael O'Daniel; and grandson, Michael Anthony O'Daniel. She is also survived by her father, William Pfeifer, (El Paso, Texas); sister, Maureen Bollin (Ladera Ranch, CA); brother and sister- in-law, Kevin and Freddie Pfeifer (Yorba Linda, CA); brother and sister- in-law, Bill and Nancy Pfeifer (Yorba Linda, CA); brother and sister-in-law, Timothy and Karen Pfeifer (Colorado Springs); sister-in-law and brother- in-law, Don and Cathy Hatfield (Hanford); and brother-in-law, Roger 'Butch' O'Daniel (Tucson). She met her husband of 27 years, Chuck, while working together in Orange County, CA. Together they have five wonderful children, and one grandson. Kathy was devoted to her family and friends. She was fiercely loyal, faithful and committed to all who knew and loved her. She was an extremely hard worker at home, her church, and in helping others. She had a servant's heart whether it was directing meals for sick friends or organizing a 'Helping Hands' ministry with the church. Her wisdom, insight, and encouragement were gifts that she shared with everyone. She loved life, her children, her family and her friends. But her relationship with Jesus was her passion in life. Life was interesting with Kathy. Her motto for cooking was "Never the Same Way Twice", and timeliness was not a priority for Kathy. One friend, in hearing of Kathy's passing said she "will miss her time challenged friend who always made time for all of us." Her life will be celebrated on Saturday, September 26, at 11:00 a.m., at Calvary Chapel Petaluma. Please join her family and friends in honoring Kathy and her love for us all. Donations may be made payable to "The Kathy O'Daniel Memorial Fund," c/o Calvary Chapel-The Rock, 915 G Piner Rd., Santa Rosa, CA 95403.
