DeKALB – Kathleen Dorothy (Durack) Anderson, 67, of DeKalb, Ill., passed away unexpectedly Feb. 6, 2013, at her home.
She was born Oct. 21, 1945, in Oak Park, the daughter of the late Lester D. and Mary O'Brien Durack.
Kathleen lived much of her life in Winfield, where she was employed at the town post office and served as a village trustee. An active member of St. John's Catholic Church in Winfield and St. Mary's Church in DeKalb, she volunteered her services at TAILS Humane Society, and was a ready helper to neighbors and friends.
All will miss her quick wit and wry sense of humor. She was a unique person, and fiercely proud of her Irish heritage.
She is survived by her brother, Brian Durack; sister, Nora (Richard) Higgins; sons, Kevin Pearson and Jeffrey Pearson; grandchildren, Joseph, Joshua, Justine, Breanna and Caden; and nieces and nephews.
In accordance with her wishes, a memorial service will be held for family and friends at 10 a.m. March 23 at St. John's Church, S233 Church St. in Winfield. All who knew her are invited to attend.
