Kathy Ann Stewart-Lovelady, 72, passed away peacefully at home on Mon., June 22, 2015, from severe COPD and Parkinson's Disease, with family and dedicated friends at her side. She was born to Russell and Janet Stewart on Nov. 19, 1942 in Vancouver, WA where she attended schools in the Vancouver School District, graduating from Fort Vancouver High School in 1962.
Kathy married Harold Lovelady and together they raised two sons, Mark David of Battle Ground, WA and Kelly William of Sydney, Australia.
Kathy (a.k.a. Katie) worked in the legal field in Vancouver and Portland for about 30 years. She obtained her Certified Professional Legal Secretary accreditation (PLS) in 1990. She was active in the Washington Association of Legal Support Professionals (f.k.a. Washington Association of Legal Secretaries). Kathy served on the local level on the board, including President and Governor, and as State Treasurer. She was loved by all in the legal field and will be missed.
Kathy had a passion for sewing and prided herself in her quilt making, however the Christmas pajamas made yearly for all the children were the biggest hit. Kathy enjoyed spending time with the Blessed Piecemakers at Felida Baptist Church making quilts, baby blankets, and tote bags which were donated to charities.
Kathy leaves behind her two sons; three grandchildren, Lilly, Sarah, and Alexander, whom she dearly loved; her mother, Janet Stewart; brother, Bill Stewart; sister, Janell Lundgren (husband Bob); along with nieces, nephews, and other family members.
