Kathleen Fredericks passed away peacefully in her sleep the evening of August 2, 2012. She was born at home Feb. 25, 1920, to George E. and Catherine (Kate) Erie Hughes in Kansas City, Kan. She graduated from Argentine High School in 1939 and the Comptometer School of Kansas City, Mo., in 1940. On Dec. 15, 1941, her high school sweetheart, Clifford Edger Fredericks, received his notice of induction. They were married four days later. After a nine day honeymoon he left for the Army on Dec. 28, and Kitty lived the life of a war widow for three and a half long years. Cliff returned from Europe to rejoin her in April of 1945. Kitty loved playing bridge until her eyesight failed. She also traveled extensively with trips to numerous locations across the United States and on Caribbean cruises. After a long life in Kansas City and Johnson County, Kan., she was preceded in death by her husband, parents, her sister, Margaret Spellman, and two brothers, George and Richard Hughes. Survivors include her brother, Francis Hughes and his wife Sue of Columbia, Mo., sisters-in-law, Joan Hughes of Overland Park, Kan., and Betty Hughes of Centennial, Col., and many nieces and nephews. Her final wishes were to be cremated and interred with her husband of 47 years in Ft. Leavenworth National Cemetery. There will be no services.
