Kathleen Marie Loper

Kathleen Marie Loper, age 42, went to dance with Jesus on Sunday, February 3, 2013. She was born to Jeanne and Rodger Loper August 28, 1970 at SVHC in Erie. Kathy was raised in the town of Wattsburg where she traveled to St. Boniface and then to Seneca High School for her education. She went on to JH Thompson Academy for Cosmetology and worked in the field for many years. She was a member of Fraternal Order of Eagles where she volunteered her time to get their new building open. Kathy enjoyed spending time with friends and family. She had a love of nature and enjoyed walking, kayaking with her sister Wendy, live music, dancing, with many other interests. Most of all she treasured her time with her Mother and her dearest friend Sharon whom she talked to every day. She will be remembered fondly for her humor and friendliness. "Today I no longer look up to some people and down on others. I can look each person in the eye squarely and honestly. Today I will climb down from the ladder of judgment on myself and others, and take my rightful place in a worldwide circle of love. Live and let live sets us free from the compulsion to criticize, judge, or condemn. Help us to practice tolerance rooted in love." Kathy was preceded in death by her Father, Rodger J. Loper in 1999. Survivors include her mother, Jeanne K. Loper, sisters, Jacqueline and Wendy of Wattsburg, a brother John J. Loper of Dayton Ohio, nieces and nephews Brianna Weber of Wattsburg, John, Jacob and Jordan Sipe of Corry and Marc and Ava Carone of Wattsburg.
