Kathleen passed away fortified by the sacraments of the Holy Mother Church on June 21, 2022 surrounded by her loving parents, Elaine and Mariano, and siblings Anne, Christopher and Jennifer (Craft), Michael and Kristen (Kountzman), Joseph, Richard, Paul and Matthew, and her Aunt Connie and Uncle Mark.

Kathleen was the loving aunt of Elsie, Genevieve, Mason, Oscar, Elijah, and Juliana Favazza.

Kathleen was the niece of Theresa (Favazza) and Richard Moser, Matthew Favazza, Louis and Sandy Favazza, August and Teresa Favazza, Rosina (Favazza) and Gerald Palmer, Robert and Gretchen Dickherber, Betty Dickherber, Irby and Linda Dickherber, Thomas and Margie Dickherber, Harold and Ida Dickherber, Mary Lou Dickherber, Connie and Mark Wilson, John and Becky Dickherber, Karen and John Kinamore, Kathleen and James Moore.

Kathleen was a graduate of Benedictine College and earned her Master’s degree at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.

For many years Kathleen taught vocal music and inspired students as an adjunct professor at McKendree University and Southwestern Illinois College. She later became a paralegal providing invaluable work for Anderson & Gilbert. Most importantly, Kathleen was a kind and generous person.

Kathleen brought joy to hundreds of people who heard her sing with the St. Louis Symphony Chorus and at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. Kathleen’s voice was heard at Carnegie Hall and by Pope John Paul II at the Vatican; she had the voice of an angel and has now joined them.

Words fail to express how much she is loved and will be missed, until we meet again.
