Kathleen Sullivan

December 13, 1959 — September 29, 2023

Kathleen Ann Sullivan (Kathy) passed away at Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff, NE, on Friday, September 29, 2023, after a short illness.

She was born December 13, 1959, in Grant to William and Mary Alyce Sullivan of Wallace, NE.

Throughout her life, Kathy enjoyed listening to music, eating different foods, and touching and feeling different textures. Even though Kathy was non-verbal, she didn't hesitate to let you know how she was feeling, whether she was happy or disliked something.

Because of Kathy's disability of being profoundly physically and mentally handicapped, her sibling's lives were shaped as they were growing up. She was the middle of five children, and she taught them patience, compassion for others, humility, and never taking anything for granted.

They are so happy to have a saint praying for them in heaven.

Kathy is survived by her siblings, Mary Therese (Doug) Carey, and Loretta Beals, all of Lincoln, William (Marianne) Sullivan of Imperial, & Noreen (Robert) Placek of Alliance, Aunt Donna Sullivan, numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents and brother-in-law, Doug Beals.
