We are sad to announce that our wife, Mom, Grammy, Aunt and friend, Kathy Kazort, passed away at the hospital on January 6th surrounded by family and friends after experiencing a life ending event the previous morning at her home in Capron, IL.
Kathy was born in Harvard, IL to William and Lucille Lentz on May 5, 1963.
The loves of her life were her Husband Kenneth Sr., her kids, Karen, Kenny and Karla and her grandkids: Zackary, Kody, Landen & KayLyn.
Kathy was loyal, loved hard and grieved the loss of loved ones even harder. We are at peace knowing she is being welcomed to heaven by the loving, open arms of her son, Junior and all those that left before her. She is loved so much and will be missed until we all meet again.
