She was greeted in heaven by her Lord and Savior, along with her husband Lawrence, daughter Lauri, and other family members who went before her. Kathleen was born on August 27, 1930 to J. Rusk and Martha (DiVall) Okey in Cassville, WI. She was one of their four daughters and two sons born and raised on the farm in Cassville. She married Lawrence J. Biggin on December 29, 1948 at The Little Brown Church in the Vale in Nashua, IA. Their marriage together was treasured for 63 years, until Lawrence's passing in 2012. Family was their riches, and they were blessed and proudest to parent eight daughters. Her daughters and their families are: Carol and A.J. Rieser- sons Louie and Sam Sears and granddaughter Samantha. Peggy and Tim McGlynn- sons Michael (Melissa) and Jason (Ashley) McGlynn and grandchildren Ronan and Harper. Nancy and Gary Simmons- sons Brad (Melissa), Ted (Carlee), David (Hilary) Simmons and grandchildren Spencer, Tyler, Hunter, Holly and Remy. Ruth and Bill Bruen- sons Matt and Luke (Emily) Mohrlang, grandson Theodore Lawrence. Mary Jane and Craig Schilling- daughters Sarah (Jason) Percha, Jennifer (Drew) Seaser and grandchildren Austin, Ava, Hayden and Blake.

Amy and Jim Waterman- daughter Mindy Waterman. Also survived by her sisters Margaret Dalthorp and Virginia Rauch, brothers Richard and Jim Okey, sister-in-law Irma Brandt, many nieces, nephews and special friends. She was a partner with Lawrence on their farm in Wisconsin until they sold and moved with their daughters to Brush, CO in 1967. Kathleen then worked for the Brush Jr. High School as a secretary until her retirement. After retirement from the school district they chose to move to Spearfish, SD where Lawrence longed to enjoy the open range and slower pace of life. They played three games of Yahtzee each evening and took a drive every day. They made friends wherever they went. The most important legacies that Kathleen will leave are the importance of family and to take the time to connect regardless of how busy one could be. She was a witness to her faith in that she taught patience, had an uplifting saying for every situation, wrote encouraging letters, prayed for her family and gave grace. A private family service will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be sent to: Trinity Lutheran Church, 3333 N. Duffield Ave., Loveland, CO 80538 or Bethlehem Lutheran Church 603 Custer St., Brush CO 80723. Go to www.viegutfuneralhome.com for condolences.
