Obituary: Katherine Jean Hayes

Katherine Jean Hayes passed away, suddenly, in her home in Arizona, on Sept. 11, 2012. A celebration of life will take place at the Skylandia picnic, Lake Forest area on Sunday, Oct. 14, from 4-5 p.m.

Kathy moved to Tahoe City in 1974. She eventually settled into Arizona in 1998. She has always considered the lake her home. She cherished her friends and family. She had a zest for life beyond compare, and will always be remembered for her humor, and her free spirit. She will be missed dearly.

Kathy is survived by her mother, Elisa V. Miller, her daughter, Nina Krommenhoek, her son, Aeryk Egan, her siblings, Deborah Ehlers, Michael Donohue, Michelle Donahue, Kelly Donohue, Mike Hayes, Greg Hayes, Jess Sierras, her grandchildren Ian, Curtis, and Quinn Krommenhoek, and her companion Alan Moore.

“Be with God Big Sister of ours. We will see you in the sweet by and by.”
