Kathy Marie Diehl, 64, of Beverly Hills, Florida, went to be with her Lord Jesus on October 25, 2022 at Vitas Hospice in Lecanto, FL.
She was born on January 25, 1958 to Elmer and Hazel Aude in Elkhorn, WI. Kathy grew up in Beloit, WI, where at the age of 16, she gave her whole heart to Jesus Christ as both her Lord and Savior. Her relationship to her heavenly Father, His Son Jesus and the indwelling Holy Spirit would direct the course of the rest of her life.
Kathy married Rick Diehl on November 26th, 1997 in Rockford, IL. She always greeted people with a smile and a genuine complement. Her laughter was contagious. She loved to worship her God and tell the story of His saving grace, mercy and great love for His children and the lost.
Kathy was predeceased by her parents. Survivors include her husband Rick of Beverly Hills, FL, a sister Connie (Kenneth) Fairbert of Beloit, WI; children in her heart Jason (Bethany) Diehl of Janesville WI, their children Abbey and Paige; Barbara Diehl of Fort Atkinson, WI and her children Dakota (his daughter Isis), Guhner, Kenny and Victoria; nieces DeAnn (Charles) Johnson and Kelly (Tom) Drew.
It was Kathy’s wish not to have a funeral service, noting that it would be a great expense to travel from Wisconsin to Florida, for all her loved ones, but those who so desired could simply celebrate her life and promotion to heaven! She will be missed here, but not forgotten.
