They would later give her ten grandchildren – Kayla, Lora, Marcus, Brion, Maxwell, Nicholas, Julie, Jessica, Luke and River – whose lives will always be better because of their dear Gramma. Her greatest baby – Bennett- was her great grandson and his Granny’s biggest fan. Kathleen spent her life raising children with love and kindness, from her younger brother and sisters, to her children,grandchildren and great grandchild, to her thirteen nieces and nephews, to her nannied babies and furbabies over the years. Kathleen’s love for her family knew no bounds. She was our caretaker, our teacher and forever our spiritual guardian.
Kathleen loved good music and dancing with her boogey tribe, crab legs with real butter, playing cards all night, paintings, poetry and the smells of burning incense. Her soul was beautiful, her laughter was infectious, her song was captivating and her dresses were always tie-dyed.

Other survivors include her mother, Ruth Jacob; her brother and 4 sisters, Reed Bennett, Marsha Bennett, Barbara Eisenbrandt, Lori Greifelt and Nancy Counterman, along with their families, all of Toledo, Ohio; and her 3 shih-tzus, Jelly, Tip and Spot.
Kathleen was, and always will be, our beloved hippie with peace, love and light in her heart.

Now her Free Spirt is truly free.
What a legacy of love Kathy left her family with. I wish I could have met her. Her kindness and love, will surely be a blessing to the world, as her children, and grand children,carry on her compassionate view of a world in need of souls such as hers. I know all to well, the pangs of sorrow, and I know as well, that she has gone, where we all shall go, and someday meet again
Sarah Bennett says
“Perhaps they are not stars in the sky,
but rather openings where our loved ones shine down
to let us know they are happy.”
Lots of love to my whole family❤️
I want to express my condolences as well as share a hope and some comfort from the bible. God is able to comfort us when we experience loss. He promised us at Revelation 21:4 to get rid of death, pain, and mourning. He also then tells us that we can see those whom we have lost again here on earth. This is found at John 5:28,29. I encourage you to read these verses and draw comfort and hope from God.
