Kathleen "Kathy" Margaret Mevissen

January 16, 1959 — March 24, 2022

Kathleen Mevissen of Rush City passed away on Thursday, March 24, 2022 at home with her daughters by her side, after a courageous four year battle with cancer at the age of 63.

Kathy was born January 16, 1959 to Richard and Marlene Holbert in St. Paul, Minnesota. At the age of 17 her family moved to Stanchfield, Minnesota.

On October 17, 1981 Kathy married Bart Mevissen and their first child was born in 1982. They went on to have three more daughters they raised in Rush City. Kathy maintained local employment throughout, while taking care of her family, tending to their small hobby farm and taking in animals that needed her care. She loved all animals, especially her cats.

She enjoyed reading, researching, painting, crafts, animal care and spending time with her daughters and grandchildren. She was the most selfless, gentle, caring, artistic, creative and talented soul. Her extraordinary strength and her will to fight was beyond measure and she will be incredibly missed by all who knew her.
