Frances B. Kath (nee Vick), 92, of Pardeeville, was united with her husband, her mom and dad, and other loved ones in their eternal home Tuesday, October 12, 2021 with her daughter by her side.
She was born March 17, 1929 to Roy and Gertrude Vick in Columbus, Wisconsin. She attended school through the 8th grade and began working various jobs. She met a young man, Clifford Kath, who was throwing peas at her at the canning factory. They were married October 14, 1950. In September 1954 they were blessed with a son Randy and a daughter, Connie in March 1958.
Frances worked at the Balliet School in Pardeeville for many years. She obtained her GED and was very proud of herself. First and foremost was her love for her family. If she was needed by her children, she was there in any capacity. Then there were grandchildren, which she enjoyed cooking and baking with and watching them play their sports.
Frances is mourned and greatly missed by her son Randy (Lynn) Kath and daughter Connie (Jim) Wiersma; grandchildren Austin (Rachel) Kath and Abby (Gabe) Haberkorn; great grandchildren Aiden Kath and Finn and Bryant Haberkorn; sisters Arline Bradley and Myrna (Rich) Hanson; a brother Ken (Anne) Vick; sister-in-law Mae Lueck, and many nieces, nephews, other dear friends, and loving caregivers. She was preceded in death by her parents Roy and Gertrude; husband Clifford; brother Merlin Vick, and sister Bev Malter.
