She also had five stepsons, John Itczak, Nick (Heidi) Itczak, Tom (Kim) Itczak, Tim Itczak (Lorrie Steffan), and Ted Itczak.

She was a very loving, thoughtful and considerate person who always put others first. Kathy loved her career as a cosmetologist and her hobbies included gardening, reading and enjoying the outdoors. She was a graduate with Delavan High School’s last Class of 1957, and was the class’s homecoming queen.

Kathy’s remains were gifted to the University of Indiana Medical Department per her wishes. Contributions may be made to the Scleroderma Foundation or the American Cancer Society in her memory. The family extends a special thanks to the nurses of the Calumet Area Hospice.

A memorial service was held Sept. 6 at the Solan Pruzin Funeral Home in Schererville, Ind., with her family and many friends in attendance.
