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.
Kathleen is survived by her 3 children and their families, Ken Kruzel, Cherie Syiek and Angie Daffinson; her 10 grandchildren, Kayla Myers, Lora Gammon, Marcus Kruzel, Brion Daffinson, Max Kruzel, Nick Syiek, Julie Syiek, Jessica Syiek, Luke Syiek and River Kruzel; and her great grandson, Bennett Myers, all of Atlanta, Georgia. 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. A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, November 12th, 2017 from 1:00 – 4:00 P.M. in her home in Duluth, Georgia.
