Katherine Frances Emerson age 38 of Adrian, passed away unexpectedly June 11, 2018, at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, surrounded by her family. She was born July 15, 1979, in Adrian to Steven and Ann (Smith) Emerson. Kathy is survived by her parents; four brothers, Steven (Heidi), Robert, Jonathan, and Joseph, and one sister, Mary Ann. Also surviving are her nephew, David, and niece, Savannah; and many dear aunts, uncles and cousins. She was preceded in death by her grandparents Katherine and Leland Smith; and Frances and Louis Emerson.
Kathy was the central light of our whole extended family. It would be difficult to find a more cheerful and loving and giving human being. She was a devoted daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and friend, happily giving of herself to everyone in her life. No words can do justice to the many wonderful qualities Kathy had. She was truly a saintly person. There is now a huge hole in our family and in our hearts.
A memorial service for Katherine will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. with a gathering beginning at 9:00 a.m. until the service at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Adrian. Burial will be in St.Joseph Cemetery Adrian, MI.
