All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all - and Kathy loved them all. Kathy's passion for animals inspired her to raise thoroughbred horses. To Kathy, all animals had human souls. To Kathy, her animals were her family. On her farm, (Winningways Farm) she cared for rescue animals of all types. Additionally, she raised alpacas, goats, and chickens.
Survivors, besides her husband, Jerome, and mother, Carol, include two brothers, Arthur (Sally) Peterson, Mosinee and Chuck (Shari) Peterson, Shiocton; and two sisters, Denise Mehring, Algonquin, Ill. and Allie (Kenneth) Andraski, Wausau.
