Kathleen “Kathy” Hemmah, age 65, of Hutchinson, MN, died Wednesday, October 23rd in Golden Living Center in Benson, MN.  Visitation will be held 10–11 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m., Monday, October 28th at St. Malachy Catholic Church in Clontarf, MN. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.


Kathleen Marie Hemmah was born February 7, 1954 to Charles H. and Dorothy M. (Pederson) Kent in Benson, Minnesota.  Kathy attended Clontarf Elementary School until seventh grade when she then transferred to Benson High School, graduating Class of 1972.  After graduation she moved to Hutchinson, Minnesota where she was employed at 3M.  She later attended St. Cloud State University and Ridgewater College to further her education.


On August 31, 1974 Kathy was united in marriage to Lloyd Hemmah, of Roslyn, SD, at St. Malachy Catholic Church in Clontarf.  This union was blessed with 45 years together and one son, Alexander Hemmah.  


Upon completion of her post-secondary education, Kathy worked with developmentally disabled adults.  Later, she was the Activity Director at the Hutchinson Senior Center…she loved the people and they loved her!  Following a car accident Kathy’s health rapidly deteriorated.  She fought heart disease and kidney disease, which left her homebound.  Kathy never complained and always found good…in everyone and every situation.  She was kind, compassionate, and was the first to offer help when needed.  Kathy enjoyed decorating her home, cooking and baking, arts and crafts, and being with people, especially her family and friends.


Kathy is survived by her husband, Lloyd Hemmah of Hutchinson; son Alexander Hemmah (special friend, Sara Yarand) of Hutchinson; three brothers: Keith (Marlene) Kent of Clontarf, Bruce (Dawn) Kent of Woodbury, and Kevin (Mary) Kent of Benson; three sisters: Debbie (Kevin) Evenson of Hutchinson, Karen (Darin) Jensen of Mankato, and Barb (Robert) Brandt of Clontarf; sisters-in-law, Marilyn Kent of Clontarf and Noreen Randall of Excelsior Springs, MO; brother-in-law, Duane (Debra) Hemmah of Webster, SD; her special life-long friend and “sister-cousin”, Eileen (Doherty) Bliss; and many cousins, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Dorothy Kent; brother, Scott Kent; brother-in-law, Dennis Randall; and parents-in-law, Rueben and Verona Hemmah.  Blessed be the memory of Kathleen Marie Hemmah.  Please sign the guestbook at www.zniewskifuneralhome.com
