Kathie is known for her loving ways, free spirit, positive attitude, open mind, zany sense of humor, welcoming of strangers, and love for singing, which she passed on to her children. She lived a life true to herself and her family. The family thanks Ted for the dedication and kindness he's shown Kathie. Per Kathie's wishes, a gathering is planned for Monday, June 16, 2014. Visitation is from 5PM until time of Reflections at 6PM, followed by an informal celebration at WAUWATOSA WOMEN'S CLUB, 1626 N. Wauwatosa Ave. If you wish to send flowers, send them not to her but to someone who needs a bit of cheer. The Leahys would appreciate donations to Zilber Family Hospice, whose staff kept Kathie comfortable in her final days.
