Kathleen Jo Brotherwood, 59, of La Crosse passed away peacefully listening to country music at 10:38 a.m. Thursday, July 28, 2011, in room 512B of the Mary Brigh Building of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., from post liver transplant complications.
She was born March 15, 1952, in Van Wert, Ohio, to the late Willard and Leota (Dunlap) Dougal. On July 1, 1972, she married Robert James Brotherwood, who preceded her in death Jan. 11, 2002.
Survivors include a son, Dennis James Brotherwood of La Crosse; two sisters, Marlene Schwing of Katy, Texas, and Monty (Rodney) Orsbon of Convoy, Ohio; extended family members in both Texas and Ohio; and her life partner, David Jarzemski of La Crosse. David was at her bed side the last 10 weeks of her life, patiently waiting for her lungs, severely damaged by the CMV virus, to recover. Alas, it was not to be.
Kathy would give the shirt off her back if you needed one, even if it meant she might catch pneumonia and die. This world has lost a special woman.
Her cremated remains were buried at Taylor Cemetery in Van Wert, Ohio, next to her late husband, mom, and dad. Donations should be sent to the Gift of Life Transplant House, 705 2nd St. SW., Rochester, Minn., 55902, in Kathy and Davidís name.
