Kathleen (HULTNER '59) BURNS, 1941 ~ 2007

Cd'A Press, 20 Apr 2007.

Kathleen HULTNER BURNS passed away from this life March 23, 2007, at Glendale AZ, in the loving presence of her husband, John D RICHMANN, daughter, Tracy BURNS, and other family and friends. She showed her mettle in bravely fighting a rare form of vasculitis, an autoimmune disease that attacked suddenly.

Kathy was born to Violet and Harold HULTNER in Wallace, Oct 1, 1941. She attended grade school in Mullan, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary Academy in Coeur d'Alene. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in music from Vassar College. In 1961, she married William C ("Bill") BURNS, a career officer in the U.S. Army. They had two children, William Kevin and Tracy Marie. Kevin predeceased his mother 20 years to the day of her death. Tracy is an Analyst with Harrah's in Las Vegas.

As a military wife, Kathy lived in many states and Puerto Rico, where she became an avid snorkeler and scuba diver. After her divorce from Bill in 1987, Kathy moved to Sausalito CA, where she pursued a career in real estate management. After her retirement she moved to Payson AZ, to enjoy an avocation in astronomy. There, in 1997, she met John C RICHMANN, whom she married in a lovely ceremony at their residence in Williams AZ, near the Grand Canyon.

Kathy designed kitchens and she worked with John designing and building custom cabinetry. She was a skilled artist, working with stained and carved glass.

With her dry wit and wicked sense of humor, Kathy made life more fun for all of us. We will greatly miss her beauty as well as her intellect, curiosity, story-telling and nonconformist spirit.

In addition to her husband and daughter, Kathy, she is survived by her sister, Sharon (HULTNER '56) GREEN, Las Vegas; Kent '58 HULTNER, San Diego; nephews, Michael HULTNER, Rancho Bernardo CA; and Chris HULTNER, Oklahoma City; niece, Stacy GREEN, Portland OR, and her cats. A memorial service will be held in Williams AZ, at the residence April 28.
