Kathleen McGowan Obituary
McGowan, Kathleen Erin Age 57, died Thursday, August 31, 2017, in Norwood Park, Chicago, IL. She was born in Chicago, IL, to John J. McGowan and Bonnie Lou (Pritchett) McGowan, and was the youngest of five children, Tom McGowan (Jan), Jim McGowan, Kevin McGowan (Gail), Sherry McGowan Maloney (Jim). She is survived by numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. Kathy was a St. Barnabas Buckeye, and a graduate of Mother McAuley High School, Class of '78. Kathy graduated from Arizona State University after spending one last memorable quarter at University of Illinois, Champagne. Kathy went about life with a spirit of passion and adventure and she brought a ray of sunshine and a dreamer's vision to all she did. She felt that love is the only thing in this life really matters and her family and friends were the beneficiaries of that and are so much the richer for it. Family and friends memorial visitation will be held at St. Barnabas Church, 10134 S. Longwood Drive, Chicago, IL 60643, on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at 10:45 a.m. The memorial visitation will be followed by a funeral Mass at 11:30 a.m. Another way to pay tribute to Kathy's memory would be to reach out and help those struggling with mental illness or make a donation to Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, www.bbrfoundation.org
