HALLELUJAH! The Lord Has Risen! And so has Kathleen Ursula Pospisil Heim. HALLELUJAH! Before sunrise on April 19th, our dear sweet mother Kathleen Ursula Pospisil Heim joined our Heavenly Father. She was welcomed with open and loving arms by her husband, the Love of her life, Walter, her mother Anna, her father John, her sister Patricia, and her brother John, along with all of her friends and other family members that passed away before her. As hard as it was to say our goodbyes, we find Peace knowing that Our Mother and Friend is Happy, Healthy, and no longer in pain. “Mom, We will all be together again. Hug Daddy from us. See you then.”
Kathy leaves behind her three children, Christine Heim Pohlman (Greg) of Steamboat Springs CO, Wayne Heim (Christine) of Chesterland OH, Jennifer Heim Redman (Cary) of Kennesaw GA, her nine grandchildren, and her two great-grandchildren. A Celebration of Life for the family will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please make a donation to your local animal shelter, as we all know Kathy loved her many pets and animals just like family.
