On Wednesday, May 18, 2022, Heaven gained a beautiful angel. Our loving mother passed away peacefully at Western Peaks Specialty Hospital, as the result of complications from COPD. Kathy Bullock, born Kathleen Rae Snow, was born on May 26, 1944 to Joseph and Helen Snow, in Grand Rapids, MI. Kathy is the second oldest of six children. Her older sister Jean and her little brother Mike proceeded her in death. Kathy’s sister Suzie lives in Washington state with her family, and her sisters Pat and Mary live in Oklahoma with their family. Her daughter Colleen Bullock, with her two sons Tony and Aaron, live in Grantsville, UT and Kathy’s daughter Dezi Webler with her husband Ed and their daughter Ashley live in North Salt Lake, UT, while their son Chaz Webler lives in Syracuse, UT with his family.
Kathy spent the early years of her life in Michigan, until her family moved to Washington state, where she graduated from Holy Angels High School in Seattle. In 1966 Kathy married Neal Collendar with whom she had her daughter Desiree Anne. They later divorced. In 1972 Kathy married Denny Bullock with whom she had her daughter Colleen Marie. They later divorced. Kathy loved her children and grandchildren deeply. She was a loving friend, sister, daughter, grandmother, and mother. She loved to plant and nurture flowers, and had one heck of a green thumb with indoor plants. Before the decline in her heath Kathy enjoyed being outdoors, cooking and baking, and she was a lifelong lover of reading.
In 1992 Kathy began her road to sobriety. She was very active in the local AA organizations, and was a sponsor to many other recovering alcoholics. As of today mom celebrates 30 years of sobriety. She will forever be a friend of Bill W. Kathy was diagnosed with Dystonia, a neurological condition, in the late 1990’s, and was a supporter of the Dystonia Foundation, as well as a big supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project. In 2005 mom quit smoking and we all celebrated her success with her. In 2012 mom was diagnosed with COPD and fought like the warrior she was to live an independent, productive life, in spite of her COPD. In November of 2021, mom went in for routine open-heart surgery. It was hoped that this surgery would correct the problems with her heart, thus helping her circulatory system, and would be her new lease on life. Sadly, her COPD was more advanced than first thought and she was never able to come off the ventilator, and her earthy body succumbed to the damage sustained earlier in life.
A memorial will be held for Kathy on Saturday, June 18th , from 2pm – 4pm, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located at 415 West Apple St, Grantsville, UT 84026. Masks are encouraged, but not required. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the COPD Foundation at www.copdfoundation.org.
