Kathleen M. Wheaton Obituary



I met Kathy when her niece and my dear friend Meredith passed away in a horrible car accident. She made comforted me at the visitation and the funeral and I went to see her afterwards a few times. I even ran into her at the cemetery. I am just finding out that she passed away, and it makes me very sad. I did think about her from time to time and I still remember her smacking me in the head with the sympathy card I had just given her at Meredith's visitation. It still makes me smile.

Aunt Kathy was my Peter Pan... no matter my age I always felt young and happy and always surrounded by love and laughter... She was the most charismatic woman that ever was...She finally gets to trade up on that wedding band for a golden halo.... we will all remember the laughter and love you brought everywhere you went.... the stories
will be shared and you will still be with us never to be forgotten.
