When they retired they created a blog to document their traveling adventures in the RV they affectionately named “Fred.” They loved to see the world together and had amazing experiences in places including Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Holland, France, Austria, Italy, Spain and Costa Rica. They spent the warmer weather with friends and family and during the winter months they spent their time traveling throughout the southern U.S., making memories and living life to the fullest.
In keeping with Kathleen’s wishes, there will be no funeral service. However, after the holidays, there will be a Celebration of Life held in the spring.
