  • Kathy Lynn Stevenson Cash was born in Salt Lake City on September 22, 1944 to Fred and June Stevenson. She is the oldest daughter and second child of six. She states, “I was proud of my parents who sacrificed constantly to be able to raise me and my five siblings… my parents taught me work, courtesy, listening, honesty, family prayer, lower tones of voices, good works in secret, return something better than received, and waste not want not.” She indicates that in school she was only allowed to wear a dress/skirt, loved sports, babysat every weekend, and excelled at grades but tried to make it look like she didn’t. She married Don Cash at a young age in the Logan Temple by candlelight in a large storm. Kathy stated in her history, “My ambition was I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A WIFE and MOTHER.” They eventually moved to Coronado Island to join Don’s Navy squadron. They survived having had four children (a girl then three boys) and moved to northeast Ohio for seventeen awesome years. Two more boys were born in Cleveland where they moved from a suburban setting to a seven-acre farm to raise cows and kids. Kathy seemed to be able to milk the cows, run her own bakery business, take boys to the emergency room, apologize to the neighbors for motorcycle noise, split logs and so much more all while being the kindest, loving, most nonjudgmental human this world has known. She loved to smile, laugh, work, pray, play, and focus on people rather than things. No one was thriftier or loved a garage sale more. She constantly took her children and their friends on local adventures to the point that friends secretly hoped for adoption. It was eventually time to move closer to family in Utah when her physical health declined. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on Feb 19. Her family can only imagine the reunion she is having with two of her sons, a sister, and parents in heaven right now. She writes, “I pray that the Lord will stay IMPORTANT in all of my progenitors lives.”

    A visitation will be held on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, at Larkin Sunset Gardens (1950 East 10600 South) from 6 to 8 PM. Masks and proper social distancing are required for everyone’s safety, but the family would love to connect safely if you are able to attend. Please remember to bring your smile.

    Kathy, Thank you for always welcoming me into your home. You made me smile even when it was I who had come to visit to make you smile. I look forward to being great friends in the life hereafter where we will be free from all that troubles us here. Enjoy your boys and your family that you have so dearly missed. We will keep our eye on Don and will love every minute we spend with him talking about his incredible wife. Welcome home.

    Your wife/mom was such a beautiful person, a true example of living a Christ-like life! She had a quiet, loving way of helping those in need. I remember being at church as a young girl. I watched on multiple occassions as Sister Cash handed over jars of fresh milk to my dad for the family. I will forever have that memory engraved in my head - the image of what it means to be a faithful servant of Christ!

    How grateful I am for the letter you sent last month. It was so special to get it and now it is even sweeter to have it. Your family has gone through so much but I know this will be one of the hardest. My love and prayers are with you and your family.

    Cousin Kathy was always so kind to me. Memories of Christmas evenings at Grandpa and Grandma Lund’s house with the whole dang Scandinavian family there. After opening our present we would draw names to determine who we would get a present for next Christmas. By todays standard, Grandma’s living room wasn’t very large but there were at least 30 family members there. My highest regards for Don and their children for the loving care Kathy received as her health declined. I will never forget Kathy’s visit and comfort for my Mother in the last few hours of Mom’s life. Love you all, Ray & Nan Walton
