Obituary for Kathleen Rose Berndt

Kathleen Rose “Kathy” Berndt, age 75, of Oshkosh, passed away on Saturday, June 22, 2019, at Lakeshore Manor. She was born on June 14, 1944, the daughter of Lyle and Audree (Dowling) Perkins, who preceded her in death.

Kathy was a “stay at home mom” for many years, dedicating her love and energy to the welfare of her family. She then went back to school, earned a degree from Fox Valley Technical College, and retired from an administrative position at The Radford Company. In her spare time, Kathy enjoyed gardening, crafting, collecting antiques and watching the Packers. Kathy was also passionate about her leadership roles in the groups Tough Love and DECA. Always their biggest fan and confidant, Kathy provided endless love and support to her four sons in all things, including serving as a Cub Scouts den mother and a soccer coach.

Survivors include her four adoring sons, Darryl (Kerrie) Berndt, Danny Berndt, Aaron (Bethany) Berndt, Adam Berndt, and their father, Donald Berndt; three precious grandchildren, Ashlyn, Aaron, and Leven; six loving siblings, Patricia, Lyle, Lynn, Lori, Lonnie, and Lisa; and nieces and nephews.
