Kathleen was a happy and joyful child with a propensity to conversation and could talk to anyone with ease. Kathleen spent her childhood enjoying the sun, sand and pines of Lake Tahoe, Nevada. She was a true romantic and loved to read and write poetry. She also loved music, gardening, word puzzles, board games, jewelry and dressing up. As a young girl, Kathleen spent many happy hours dreaming about having her own home, garden and family.
After high school, Kathleen married and moved to Colorado. She was blessed with 2 wonderful children, Marcus and Brittany. She liked adventure and traveled often.

Kathleen met Kent Nielson in 2002 and married on October 13, 2012. Kathleen struggled with the effects of Myotonic Dystrophy yet always did her best to remain upbeat, bubbly and helpful. Kent was her caregiver for the 15 years they were together and kept her moving and as healthy as possible. He will miss his little Dove. She will be missed by all that knew her.
