Kathleen's infectious laugh could light up a room and make any event seem like a celebration. She loved her grandparents, Jeri and Dick Lindauer of Bellevue, NE, and the late Peter and Izzy Hart. Kathleen was friendly, loyal, and generous to any and all of her many friends.
On Tuesday, Dec. 18, Kathleen passed away at her home in Cedar Rapids at the age of 31.
She is survived by her daughters, Olivia Rose Hart, 12, and Amanyi Terralyn Hart, 3, to whom she devoted her entire life.
