She loved family, friends, music, and animals. She loved her yard, planting flowers, the Hilldale farmer’s market, living in her childhood home, and laughter.
She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Jean Cencic, and several loving dogs. She is survived by her husband Ed, sisters, Paula (Brian) Wermich, Carol (Kevin) Rommelfanger, Mary (Rick) Bennett, sister and brother-in-law, Sis and Gib Schmidt, and many special nieces, nephews, and their families, which she dearly loved.
A private family service will be held. Contributions to your local animal rescue in Kathy’s name would be appreciated. A Celebration of Life is being planned for a future date.
