Kathy Layne, 68, of Sacramento passed away May 2, 2017, in Roseville, California.
Kathy was born in Oakland on September 19, 1948. She graduated from Foothill High School in 1966 and went on to attend Sacramento State to earn a degree in Government. In 1974, she married her high school sweetheart Leonard. After a career in public service with DHHS, Kathy decided to change careers and earned a teaching credential in 1989. Kathy then taught hundreds of children in the Robla School District for 13 years and retired in 2002.
Kathy enjoyed knitting, spending time with her dogs, reading a book in the pool during summer and being with her family. She was happiest when she got the middle part of the watermelon or was playing games and acting silly. Kathy was the kind of woman who loved Christmastime and being a grandma, and was proud to say that she was the first in her family to graduate from college.
Survivors include her two children Robert (Marc) and Julie (Justin), her grandson Tyler, her two sisters Claudia (Guy) and Debbie (Bill) and her sister-in-law Robin, many nieces and nephews, and her dog Lolli. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Leonard and her brother Tom.
A graveside service will be held May 18, 2017 at Mt. Vernon Cemetery at 11:00 a.m. with a meal of condolence to follow.
