Kathleen Leato

June 26, 1961 — April 20, 2016

Kathleen Leato

Kathleen Ann (Katrina) Leato was born in Chicago, Illinois on June 26, 1961. Our sweet Kathy left us suddenly on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. Kathy always had a smile for everyone and never met a stranger. She was a consummate joker, making others laugh and smile and feel good about themselves. That is what truly made her happy in life. She was very proud of her service in the Army as a Military Police Officer and travel was her passion. Kathy loved with no judgement, just one of her many wonderful qualities. She loved her children with all her heart and soul "to the moon and back." Kathy lived a full and wonderful life. Even in the worst of times she would say, "It will all work out, I promise." And it always did. I believe Kathy had a connection to an alternate universe that she called faith, and she had enough for all of us. Kathy loved her nieces and nephews with all her being. They held her heart in their hands. Kathy is preceded in death by her mother; Shirley Marie Carol Leato. She is survived by her partner in life; Dee (Delores) Leato, father; Richard C. Leato Sr., brothers; Kenneth (Jenny) Vitrano, Richard (Jody) Leato Jr., and Kevin Leato, children; Olivia Rene Coleman, Shelby Mariah Bodily, and Charley Robert (Bobby) Coleman III, grandchildren; Audree Marie Hiller, Anna Janette Torres, and Melah Karen Bodily, numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and her beloved fur babies; Ricky and Lucy, and so, so many close friends. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul was worth it for having been allowed to walk where I have walked, which was to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, in it, and above. Kathy, may the road rise to meet you, may the wind always be at your back, may the sunshine warm upon your face, and the rain fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of His hand. Until we meet again sweet Kathy, "One Love." A celebration of life will be held Saturday, April 30, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. at the Remember the Main Park with military honors by the American Legion and Utah Army National Guard.
