Kathleen K. Meyer

November 1, 1956 — September 24, 2022


Kathleen K. Meyer, age 65 of Clintonville, WI passed away September 24, 2022 in the comfort of her home surrounded by family.

Kathy was born to the late James and Mary Eggleston November 1, 1956 in Clintonville. Kathy graduated from Clintonville High School in 1974. Kathy Attended Mercy School of Nursing in Oshkosh and finished her schooling at Fox Valley Tech in Appleton. Kathy received her RN nursing degree and dedicated her life to helping others in the healthcare field including long term care as well as the role of Director of Nursing.

Kathy loved time spent with her family and grandchildren. She loved her very spoiled puppies Sheeba an Old English Sheepdog and Steven Molly a black lab who will miss her dearly. Kathy enjoyed nature’s blessings ~water, sunsets, moon runs, bird watching and enjoyed a good thunderstorm. She also liked putzing in the garden. Kathy also loved going for trips to the casino, trying new recipes, and most recently her ability to train her “pet chipmunk” Alvin who would eat peanuts out of her hand. Her favorite music was For King & Country; she was recently able to meet them at a Christian concert in Oshkosh. She described this day as one of her best experiences ever and felt as though she was dreaming. Kathy enjoyed reading Donna Ashworth’s uplifting books during her illness to raise her spirits.

Kathy was beautiful inside and out, with the heart of a dreamer and the determination of a warrior. Her smile was contagious and she always loved a good joke and occasionally a good prank. Although Kathy lost her battle to cancer she was determined and never stopped fighting. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. She often said “Everything is gonna be alright”

Kathy is survived by her loving husband, Jeffrey of 46 years; Jennifer Patza (Tim); Grandchildren, Brittany Rindt, McKenzie Stumpf (Blake) Logan Meyer, Keegan Meyer, Peyton Meyer, Ellie Patza, & Macy Patza; Great-grandchildren, Charolette Stumpf (Boo Boo) & Cashton Stumpf (Woo Woo); Siblings, Scott Eggleston (Stacey) John Eggleston (Kim).

Kathy was proceeded in death by her son Jeffrey Meyer Jr. (Buzz) & her Parents Mary & Jim Eggleston.

Do not make the mistake of living in sadness, or living small to honour their absence.
You owe it to them to live even more vividly than before.
If they could reach you, they would surely say..

“Take the love you had for me and turn it into gladness,
use the love you had for me to drive away the sadness.”

Love is an energy, so powerful, so all-consuming that when the person you felt all that love for is not here, you are a vessel filled with a boundless source of power that has nowhere to go.
Harness it.
Use it to burn even more brightly and live even more loudly than before.

Share the love you felt for that person with all the other special people in your life, for it is limitless. There is no end to it and there never, ever should be.

You see unlike us, love never dies, it carries on from one generation to the next. A wonderfully comforting thought.

If they could reach you they would surely say…

“Make my time on earth count loudly, so I’ve not lived in vain.
Use the love we shared to make more love and not more pain.”

If you are struggling to move on, to find the way to carry on. Without them.

This is it.
Use the love.

Carry them with you in all that you do, using their love as the source.

~Donna Ashworth
