    My family grew to know and love Katy while she cared from my wife at Cambridge Place Nursing home in Marysville. We owe a great debt of gratitude to her for the love and care she showed in her daily work. She was always among my favorite nurses. Katie was a beautiful person outside and inside.

    Katy’s uncle Frank Lindemuth spoke of Katy often. He was so proud of her. We wish we could have met her because Uncle Frank told us about her loving spirit. I can’t imagine the grief of Keith, mom and dad, siblings, or the rest of her family, but know that you are in our prayers.

    • Tina Zartman on March 20, 2021 at 11:34 pm

      Thank you so much. She was very fond of her Uncle Frank.

    I’m so sorry for your loss, Katy was an amazing woman and she will be greatly missed. I loved working with her at LCC, she was very caring, good at her job and so happy to be getting married soon. She spoke often of her family and friends. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, it will be hard not seeing her smiling face every day.

  16. Tina Zartman on March 20, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Thank you Becky. It has been nice to hear from her coworkers.
