This was my beloved mother, who died of complications of ALS.

I will write a longer biography shortly. In the meantime, here is her obituary, written by my sister, Teri (Teresa), which appeared in the Eugene Register-Guard on February 6, 2009:

Kathleen Burdick

SPRINGFIELD A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 1533 Market St. in Springfield for Kathleen Jo "Kathie" Burdick of Springfield. She died Feb. 2 of complications of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. She was 59. Visitation will be from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. today, Feb. 6, at Buell Funeral Chapel in Springfield.

She was born Jan. 15, 1950, in Pocatello, Idaho to Forrest and Helen Bates Strawn. She married Richard Burdick on Feb. 29, 2000, in Eugene.

She attended Pocatello High School in Idaho and South Eugene High School. She was a certified nursing assistant and caregiver.

Note: Mom's ashes were buried beneath her baby sister's headstone, beside their mother. We strongly believe that all three of them would approve.
