Katherine Ione Lotz

August 14, 1952 — March 30, 2018

Katherine Ione Lotz passed away surrounded by her children on Good Friday, March 30, 2018 at Lakeside Health and Rehab Center in Pine City and has joined God in Heaven in Eternal Life.

Kathy had many interests in life.  Some things she enjoyed doing the most included going to Bingo, watching her favorite TV shows, talking with family and friends and working on craft projects.  She enjoyed collecting stuffed animals and souvenir cups from the various states family had traveled to.

Kathy’s greatest joy in life however was her 5 children.  Often she would say, “I just want to be with my family.”  Spending time with family was the most important thing to her.  She was always proud of her children.  These last few years she especially enjoyed weekend visits and going to church each Sunday at Zion Lutheran.  She enjoyed birthday parties for her grandchildren and outings to various places and trips to Duluth.  The last 2 years she resided at Sophie’s Manor in Pine City.  In her time there she was active in various activities they did.  She became especially fond of her favorite nurse, Amy, and would talk about her all the time. She didn’t get to go on outings with them but enjoyed simple phone conversations.  What mattered most to her was truly her 5 children who brought her joy and happiness.

Kathy is survived by her children: Lisa Adolphson of Minneapolis, Jerry (Stepheny) Lotz of Pine City, Brandon (Melissa) Lotz of Braham, Sarah Lotz of Minneapolis and Gina Lotz of Forest Lake; 13 grandchildren; siblings Alice Knight of Superior, WI., Ardis (Dick) Hanson of Karlstad, Anita Keys of Superior, WI., Alan (Norma) Adolphson of Bemidji, Randy Adolphson of Karlstad.
