IRONWOOD, Mich. - Kathleen A. "Kathy" Morrison, 77, of Ironwood, passed away Aug. 26, 2019, after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer at home with her family by her side.

She was born Nov. 29, 1941, in Wakefield, to Ralph and Doris (Gorski) Bodoh. Kathy worked as a waitress both at Ma's Kitchen in Ironwood and Club Carnival in Hurley before she devoted 42 years of her life as the library technician at Luther L. Wright High School. She was an avid reader and wanted to share her love of reading with the students so she would attend book sales throughout the area to purchase books for donation to the school library.

She is survived by her beloved partner and best friend of 36 years, Joe Kryzewski of Iron Belt Wis .; children, Deanna (Robert) Bristol of Wausau, Wis., and David (Colleen Murphy) Morrison, of Brownstown; a grandchild, Christina (Corey) Caswick of Madison, Wis .; sister, Angie Osinski of Iron Belt, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Kathy was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Doris Bodoh; brother Richard Bodoh; sister, Dolores (Tudy) Carlson; and brother in law, Michael Osinski.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Mary's of the Seven Dolors Catholic Church in Hurley, Wis. on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at 11 a.m. with the Very Rev. Frank Kordek OFM as celebrant, preceded by a visitation from 10 a.m. until the time of the Mass.

Interment will follow at Lakeside Cemetery in Wakefield.
