November 19, 1942 ~ June 22, 2015

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.
A celebration of her life will be held on Sun., July 12th from 1-4p.m. at the Covington House, 4201 Main St., Vancouver, WA 98663.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Parkinson's Center of Oregon at OHSU, 3181 SW Sam Jackson Park Road, Portland, OR 97239.

I was first introduced to Kathy in the early 90's by my best friend and her son, Kelly. I thought she was the coolest Mom ever and she could run circles around me, while I was in the prime of my life at college. Even in her final days, as I was blessed with the opportunity to visit with her, she was full of life and energy and had such a wonderful since of humor and outlook on life. Kathy, the good Lord was ready for you and I look forward in seeing you again one day. Blessing and condolences to your family. Tracy

Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. ~Author Unknown

I'm glad I got to know Kathy better as my neighbor when she came to live with Janell during her later days. She lived life as fully as possible right up to the end and it was wonderful to see the family share their mutual love for each other through those difficult last days. Blessings and may you find comfort. JulieAnn Edman
