Kathleen Elizabeth Wofford Bouman Obituary
Bouman, Kathleen Elizabeth Wofford (nee Haas), born July 14, 1952 in Lakewood, California, died peacefully in her sleep at home after an afternoon of reminiscing on August 15, 2014. She was in BJC Hospice care and had been in treatment for head and neck cancer since the beginning of 2013. Kathy and her late husband, Tom Wofford, moved to the Ozarks with his two young sons and settled in rural West Plains, MO. They started life together in a dirt floor cabin and lived there until they could build the house that Kathy had designed. Their twenty-six year marriage ended when Tom died in 2006. Kathy was a founding member of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of West Plains, and president of the Harlin Museum. She married Michael Bouman of University City, MO in 2009. They shared a passion for concerts, museums, opera, and gardening. She was the past president of the Greater St Louis Daylily Society and together with Michael created extensive daylily gardens at their newly remodeled home in St Peters, MO. Kathy is survived by her husband Michael, by her sisters Debbie Brodnax of Lakewood, California and Susan Haas of Cottonwood, California; by her brothers Stephen Haas of Nevada City, California and Martin Haas of Ashland, Oregon; by her stepsons Keith and Kevin Wofford, their wives, Wendy and Tera, their eight children, Nolah, Glennah, Arianna, Joshua, Conner, Luke, Ryan and Shelby (McLemore), and by her lifelong friend, Laurel Zeri, of Kaneohe, Hawaii.
