She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Dick; a son in infancy, Wayne Jr.; a brother; and four sisters.

Kathryn was united in marriage with Dick W. Rozenberg. She devoted her life to her husband, children and family, and was a member of the Monroe United Methodist Church. She was employed and retired from Pella Corp. in Pella, never missing their annual retirement/holiday dinners, until her recent illness. She loved her family and cherished them, and her sisters and brothers. She attended many community activities with many of her good friends and neighbors. She continued to live in her own home and give her yard and flower garden the best and loving care.

Those left to honor the memory of Kathryn include her three daughters: Maxine "Micky" (Jerry) Ward of Cleveland, Tennessee; Norma (Dean) Honnold of Clive, Iowa, and Barbara Briggs of Monroe, Iowa; her seven grandchildren; seventeen great-grandchildren; her sister, Dorothy Mullins of Monroe; her brother, Gary Gezel of Pella; and several nieces and nephews.

Kathryn's stability was an example of the lifestyle she led. Her family wishes to especially thank the nurses and staff of Hospice of Jasper County, for their care, comfort and support.
