Kathy Louise (Pongrass) Drew, 59, passed away August 1, 2014, in Leroy.
Mrs. Drew was born June 5, 1955, in Painesville, and was a lifelong Lake County resident.
Kathy had a beautiful voice. While attending Harvey High School, she sang lead soprano in the choir. She had many musical partnerships with local musicians during the last 40 years. She also had a passion for writing poetry.
She was an extremely caring animal lover, and would rescue any living creature she found in need. She found peace in feeding deer and wild birds at her home. She enjoyed bowling, horseshoes and most importantly spending time laughing with her family and friends.
Kathy is survived by her husband and soul mate of 41 years, Rick; mother-in-law, Anna Archibald; daughter, Jessica (Camron) Edwards; son, Jason (Becky) Drew; granddaughters, Emilee and Maddie; sister, Mary Dufton; sister-in-law, Marion Pongrass; nieces, Jennifer Filkins, Kim Novak and Rachel Belcher; nephew, Ross Hissom; and other family members and many friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, George & Mary Pongrass.
Per her wishes, Kathy will be cremated. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you embrace today and your loved ones because "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans".
