Seward resident Katherine Miriam "Kitty" Davidson died Monday, Oct. 15, 2001, in Seattle at the University of Washington Medical Center. She was 40.
Funeral services will be in Michigan at 11 a.m. today at Saint Clement Catholic Church with burial in the Romeo Cemetery.
Ms. Davidson was born on July 4, 1961, in Mount Clemens, Mich. She was in the last sixth grade class graduating from the Saint Clement School, and she graduated from Romeo High School in 1979.
She moved to Houston, Texas, where she lived for about 10 years. She made many friends, worked as a glass blower and discovered that she loved sport fishing. She returned to Michigan for three years before moving to Alaska, where she had lived in Seward for the past five years.
"Kitty had a close relationship with her family and friends. She taught us many lessons such as: life is an adventure, help people in need, be patient and brave and take time to fish," her family said.
Ms. Davidson was preceded in death by her father, Philip C. Davidson. She is survived by her parents, Marie and Fred Kowalke of Romeo; siblings and in-laws Elizabeth Lee and Mark Stamper of Plymouth, Mich., Walter C. and Lisa Davidson of Houston, Texas, Rosalie Benser, Pam and Jack Geiser and Jeffrey and Bridget Kowalke, all of Romeo, Fred and Karen Kowalke and Jay Kowalke of Roseville, Mich., and Kim and Paul Wagner of Sandusky, Mich.; 14 nieces and nephews; and many members of her extended Alaska family.
Arrangements were by the Henry M. Malburg Funeral Home in Romeo.
