Our Condolences to the Kathryn Fritsch family from Darlene (Fritsch) Holmes, George Holmes, Dawn Warg (Herb/Brittany) and Tina Hurd (Mike/Zach).  Aunt Kathryn was a very special, beautiful lady her entire life.  On my last visit to Rochester I saw Aunt Kathryn and she got to visit with my youngest daughter - Tina.  Our Aunt was so happy that Tina still had her copper red hair - just like her own.  She lived a very happy, fulfilled life and we shall miss her always.  May she rest in peace.


 

Our deepest sympathy to your family.  Such a beautiful person that will be missed by many.  Cherish your memories as they will bring you comfort and maybe a giggle or two.  Rest in peace Kathryn.  Larry and Deb Klein

My sincere sympathy  to  Kathryn 's family.  May she rest in peace. 

Denny and Diane.   So sorry for your loss.   Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. 

Hello to  the Fritsch family,


As a child I spent many days at the Fritsch farm. I always thought of Kathryn as a second mom. I actually still remember the old farmhouse being taken out and the new one being moved in and where it came from. What a wonderful, full life she had to live be a healthy 98 year old! I certainly won't ever forget her or any of your family.  May she rest in peace.

Kathryns  Family,


We are sorry for your loss.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.  May all your memories of Kathryn bring you comfort and peace.


With Deepest Sympathy.


 

Ronnie and all the other Fritsch's, I'm so sorry to hear about Kate passing. She was one in a million and I'll miss her stories of hearing about Chuck dropping Ronnie off at school and Ronnie turning around and running after him. Sorry, Ronnie, but that's what happens when all of us cousins tried to hear stories that one was as bad as us. On behalf of all of his brother, James Fritsch's family, you were all so lucky to have Kate as a mother and role model and we were lucky to have her in our lives. We loved her dearly.
