Kathleen Pedersen Obituary
Kathleen Pedersen
Jan 28, 1920-July 27, 2014
Former resident of Orinda and Walnut Creek
Kathleen was born in State College, Pennsylvania and died at the age of 94. She graduated from UC Berkeley in 1941. While at Cal, she met her husband of 62 years, Bernard Pedersen.
Summers were spent with family and friends at their beautiful lakefront home in Tahoe where many hours were spent playing bridge and spite and malice. Kathleen was a gifted artist whose talents included woodcarving and making stained glass creations. She made many treasured gifts for family members over the years. Family traditions were important to her and she never missed an opportunity to bake Christmas cookies with her granddaughters every year. The lesson in life she taught us all was to "roll with the punches".
Kathleen is survived by her children Dwight Pedersen and Patty Foster. She was adored by her five granddaughters Jenna deBoisblanc, Sara Olsen, Molly Falcione, Ingrid Perez and Julia Sundberg. She also had 13 great grandchildren. Kathleen was a strong, dignified and poised woman who will be missed dearly by her family.
