Visitation: 7 to 8 p.m. Friday at Lucas Funeral Home, 1321 Precinct Line Road, Hurst, TX 76053. Katherine Marie was born in Fairfield, CA on Sunday, May 2, 1971 to Norrine Page. "Kat" graduated in Italy from Naples American High School in 1989. She pursued a professional career in the travel and tourism industry which birthed her love of adventure and a passion for her Hawaiian roots. Her dreams became a reality when she married the love of her life, Shawn Kleeb, in the Hawaiian Islands on Thursday, June 7, 2001. Since then, Kat achieved her business goals with high acclaim and recognition as an outstanding office manager in the global logistics field. Her career, as notable as it was, always took the back seat to her love of family and home. Those who knew her loved her for her generosity, compassion and selfless genuineness. Her son Zachary has fond memories of her famous mashed potatoes and she is well known for her love of Pat Green and the Dallas Cowboys. Kat's smile and contagious laughter will always be missed yet always remembered as special gifts to us who loved her and continue to love her. We will never forget you Kat and we will continue to cherish the memories from the years that you gave to us. With one heart and one voice we say, "Thank you Kat!" She was preceded in passing by her mother, Norrine P. Scanlan; and grandparents, Alice Fernandez, William Page, and Virginia and Emilio Ambrose. Survivors: Husband, Shawn Howard Kleeb; son, Zachary Abraham Popchock; father, John Ambrose; step-mother, Nora Ambrose; sisters, Jessica Michelle and Tiffany Nicole; nieces, Avah, Morgan and Devan; and nephews, Cayden and Troy.
