LODI—We are saddened to tell you all that our Mom, Catherine “Cathie” Koehn, age 82, of Lodi, died on Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018. Mom had been battling some health issues that ultimately took her from us.
Anyone who ever met her, would know her as one of the kindest and most generous people on earth. She was fiercely proud of her Irish heritage and she enjoyed her knitting group and grandchildren.
Mom was born on Jan. 17, 1935, in Chicago, Ill., the daughter of James and Elinor (Lennon) Leonard. She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Sara Leonard. She is survived by and will be terribly missed by her “four boys,” Jim (Diana), Mike (Franci), Pat and Sean. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Max, Sam, Emily, Heather, Michelle and Alaina.
Knowing her faith and her strong beliefs, she will be looking forward to her eternal life with the Lord. As we knew her and how she lived her life we are certain of this as well.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at BLESSED TRINITY CATHOLIC PARISH AT ST. PATRICK’S CHURCH—LODI, 521 Fair St., at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018, with Father Scott Jablonski presiding. Burial will be held at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Portage. Visitation will be held at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of services on Wednesday. Online condolences may be made at www.gundersonfh.com.
