Kathleen Quintella Kramer died January 18, 2019 at Hospice House in Ellenton FL, her daughters by her side. She lost her battle with cancer after fighting for 9 months. She was born in Klamath Falls, Oregon on December 14, 1937 to Mordecai and Jeanne Hess. She spent most of her life in Oregon, growing up and living in southern Oregon until she was married and had her two daughters.
