Kathy was born to Doris and Alfred Gass in Streator, Illinois. Their family moved to
Wisconsin in the late 1940s.
Kathy and Kenneth Dolesy were married in 1955 and blessed with six children.
Kathy enjoyed traveling with Ken, and often their daughters Sandy and Karen
accompanied them. She loved going back to Streator to visit relatives and friends. She
was a member of Squaw Creek Lutheran Church.
She worked hard all her life and was known for her caregiving skills. She will be deeply
missed by her family, friends, and those who knew and loved her.
Kathy is survived by her daughters; Nancy (Doug) Mason, Sandra Dolesy, and Karen
(Joel) Johnson; sixteen grandchildren and step-grandchildren, twenty-five great-
grandchildren and step-grandchildren, and sister Louise (Sid) Erickson.
She is preceded in death by her husband Kenneth Dolesy, infant daughter Judy, son
Michael (Maritess) Dolesy, and daughter Brenda (Patrick) Almquist, her parents Alfred
and Doris Gass, and her brothers Jim and Gene.
There will be no visitation at Kathy’s request. A private family graveside service will be
held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be given to Jackson
County Interfaith or Squaw Creek Lutheran Church.
Arrangements entrusted to Jensen-Modjeski Funeral Home of Hixton.
