Our beautiful “Mother” was born on December 21, 1923 in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. In 1942 she met Jack Warner the handsome American Soldier. It was love at first sight! They married in 1943 and had the first two of their eleven children in Australia. In 1948 they moved to America; nine more children were to follow and countless adventures.
In 1968, once her children were all in school, she started her college journey and finished with a Masters in Education. In 1973 she began teaching Special Education at David Douglas High School. Her teaching career lasted 22 years.
She’s had a long enjoyable retirement; spending time with loved ones and spreading love to everyone she met. She was our Angel.
Kathleen is survived by her 10 children, Kathryn, Kevin, Dawn, Susan, Shannan, Shaun, Brian, Lisa, Lori and Kristi; 24 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack and oldest son, Kerry.
