On Friday, July 7th, Kathy Lubben (VanWetter) lost her difficult battle with epilepsy. She was born August 4th, 1973 to Elizabeth Spranger and James Michaelis. She had four brothers, Chris, Daniel, Jarrod, and Joel and five children: Amber (26), Andrew (25), Edward (19), Kaitlyn (17), and Kaleb (3) whom she loved deeply.
Kathy had an adventurous spirit and loved the outdoors; camping, fishing, and hiking were all passions of hers that she passed on to her children. She loved to have fun and no matter what day it was, even if you were just going to get groceries, if you were with her there was never a dull moment.
November 2009 brought a day that would change the course of her life forever. It was then that she experienced her first seizure and was diagnosed with epilepsy. Since then she fought bravely every day to survive for her family.
This campaign was set up by her eldest daughter Amber to help cover the cost of arrangements and to provide a small memorial for Kathy's family and friends. Any funds left over after these expenses will go towards helping Kathy's youngest son, Kaleb, during this difficult transition.
