Kathleen (Kathy) Hart Donnelly, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, passed into the eternal and loving arms of Jesus on January 19, 2022, after suffering complications with COVID.
Kathy was born to Harvey Hart and Karen McCarty Hart on June 26, 1957, in Everett, Washington. Karen’s life was cut short when Kathy was a small child and Velda Hart entered her life as her mother. Both Harvey and Velda have also passed on to be with the Lord. Kathy is survived by her older brother Duane Hart and her younger brother Robert (Hart) McCarty-O’Hairt.
Kathy was married for 45 years to Patrick (Pat) Donnelly. Pat preceded Kathy in death by 13 days, on January 7th, 2022, as he too succumbed to complications with COVID. They are survived by their daughter Lynda Donnelly-Crites, her husband, Rex Crites, and their children, Jayden, Aeslyn, and Eodyn and their son Michael Donnelly and his children, Ian, Brady, and Jackson.
Kathy was a loyal servant of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was the secretary for her church and loved sharing the gospel (1Corinthians 15:1-4) with as many people as possible. Kathy was a light in her church and her community.
A celebration of Kathy and her husband Pat’s lives will be held on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, at The Bridge Church, 23001 WA-3, Belfair, Washington 98528. The celebration will begin at 12pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made, in loving memory of Pat and Kathy, to Operation Ward 57 (https://www.operationward57.org) to help wounded and ill service members, veterans, and their caregivers.
