|Kathleen Mary Roblee|
Jan. 8, 1948 - Nov. 10, 2013
Kathy was born in Milwaukee on Jan. 8, 1948 to Douglas and Marilyn Roblee. She is survived by Jean, her partner of nearly 20 years; her daughters: Rebecca, 31, in Monterey, CA; and Elizabeth, 28, in Philadelphia, PA; her mother: Marilyn in Sheboygan; and her brothers: John, Paul, and Cliff.
Kathy always embraced education. She graduated from Sheboygan North High School in 1966, received a Bachelor’s Degree from St. Norbert College in 1970, was awarded a Doctorate Degree in Educational Psychology from Marquette University in 1975, and completed post-doctoral studies in Counseling Psychology at Purdue University in 1982.
Kathy’s work contributions were wide ranging, yet consistently focused on understanding, supporting, and appreciating people from all walks of life. Her teenage summers as playground director at Cooper School in Sheboygan piqued her early love of children. She soon served as an educator, first at the high school level, then after completing her advanced degrees, on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh for over 20 years. For the past 15 years, she has worked as a Consulting Psychologist for various organizations including serving several Native American communities.
Kathy always loved the outdoors and cherished animals. She camped with family and friends at every opportunity, and eventually was able to settle into a cozy home in the country where she relished outings to count Wild Lady Slipper Orchids. She loved summer motorcycle trips along country lanes, and she loved her menagerie of rescued cats and dogs. Above all, she loved her dear friends and all the joy and support they have provided over the years.
In lieu of flowers, please remember Kathy through donations to the following non-profit where she was very active in recent years: The Lost Companion, Feral Cat Management of Wild Rose, P.O. Box 282, Wild Rose, WI 54984, www.thelostcompanion.org.
Do not stand at my grave
shine at night.
