Dear Shannon, The loss of a mother is so difficult. May your loving memories help your through your grieving. Kathy was a ray of sunshine at Clive Elementary School. She was the heart and soul, the go to person, the problem solver, and the organizer of all chaos. I loved her support in all the arts, her kindness/love to each and every student and staff member, her broad smile and her positivity. She will be missed. 🙏 and 💕

It is hard to think about Kathy in any other way but the most compassionate person I’ve ever known. Her smile and kindness made everyone she was in contact with smile and gave them a better day. Her talent and her contribution along with Shannon’s added such beauty to St Mark special events like the annual advent by candlelight. Kathy loved her church and especially Christmas and opportunities to share her love. She will be missed by so many. She made all of our lives better.

Shannon, Family & Friends,
I wanted to express my condolences to you all on the passing of Kathy. I will always remember her as the ‘go to’ leader at Clive School. If a parent (like me) needed to know how to get help from the right person, she was the one we could depend on for direction. I will always remember her happy nature and commitment to her work. She and Duane shared that desire for excellence in education. I will always cherish how she looked out for my kids while they were at Clive. I know there is peace in heaven for her.
Stay strong and safe,
Chuck Lauritsen VHS

Dear Shannon, Betty, and the Drustrup Family,
Our deepest sympathy to you in Kathy’s passing. We knew her as the welcoming smile of Clive Elementary. Our entire family was fortunate to see her at the 2019 Festival of Trees; of course, she called us by name and her smile brought back happy memories of Clive Elementary. We will always remember Kathy and Duane; they were both such beautiful people. May the happy memories of your times together carry you through the days ahead.
“Those who live in the Lord never see each other for the last time.”
Our deepest sympathy to you all,
Nabil, Judy, and Natalie Chamat/Costa Chamat and Family

Kathy and her bright smile were the face of Clive School. She was often the first one to greet kids and guests. She knew all the kids and their parents! Our sympathy and prayers to all who knew and loved her.

Dear Shannnon, I am so very sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. It was always a happy time to see the two of you out and about together. You were a great Mom and Daughter team. I spent some time going through my hymnal this evening reading some hymns I thought Kathy might have enjoyed singing. One had these thoughts: Though He giveth or He taketh, God his children ne'er forsaketh. His the loving purpose solely to preserve them pure and holy.
Your Mom's love and spirit will live in your heart always, my dear. God's Peace, Mary Ellen

I am so sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of Mr. and Mrs. Brown from Clive Elementary. I left Clive as a sixth grader in 1993. In 2006, my sister and I stopped by because we wanted to check out the remodel. We walked in the front office and Mrs. Brown greeted us both by name, without hesitation. She was such a kind woman who always made you feel welcome.

Shannon - I have to echo what Ed said. Wonderful memories fill my mind and heart of the Brown Family many years ago. It is amazing how one year of influence from your family in Stafford gave a 1st year band director the confidence he needed to keep going. I am smiling just thinking about Kathy and Duane being together again. Take care of yourself and remember we all love you.
