Kathleen started serving our community almost 30 years ago as her Senior Class President in 1983 at Washington High School and as a 4-leader for Warren Township. She then went to college and served as a Police Officer at Indiana University in Bloomington. She came home to South Bend and served as a Police Officer and Detective with the St. Joseph County Police Department, specializing in crimes against children. She went on to receive 2 master’s degrees and has served our community in running a foster care agency and working in mental health for more than 20 years serving children in adults struggling with mental health issues. She now serves the living and the dead at St. Joseph Funeral Home and Cemetery as their General Manager. But the most important job she has ever done is being my mom.
