Kathy grew up on a farm in the Fairdale area north of St. Paul where she attended country school and graduated from St. Paul High School in 1951. She then taught school in the Fairdale area for one year and then worked as a switchboard operator for the telephone company. After she and Marvin were married the couple farmed northwest of St. Libory. Kathy worked right alongside her husband for their many years of farming. They later moved to a home southwest of St. Libory to enjoy their retirement. For the past three years she has resided at the Howard County Medical Center in St. Paul. She was a member of the United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Women in St. Paul and the Red Hat Society Ladies of St. Paul. Church and family were very important in Kathy's life. She loved her grandsons and enjoyed traveling. She was always willing to try anything and was a very positive and loving person. She was preceded in death by her parents; her step-father, John McClelland; and a brother, Stanley Rasmussen. Memorials are suggested to the family's choice.
