Kathy was a first generation American born to German immigrant parents Rose and Louis Hollmann. She was #5 of eight children. The family moved to Villa Park from Kansas City, Missouri. She attended St. A’s Catholic grade school and graduated with the class of 1959 from Immaculate Conception High School in Elmhurst. After high school Kathy met the love of her life, Bill. They married and raised their five children in Lombard. Kathy & her siblings grew up with no cousins, aunts or uncles nearby which made family so incredibly important to her. She cherished all of her nieces & nephews dearly and being Mimi to 7 plus was one of her greatest joys in life. Her quick wit and endearing personality were very special. Kathy made lifelong friends from childhood, school, neighbors, careers and dear friends from working at Eastern Airlines. Kathy will truly be missed by all. Please omit flowers.
