Kathleen Hendrickson

Kathleen Sue Hendrickson of Eaton Rapids, MI passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at the age of 69. Kathy was born on November 8, 1952, in Newport, Rhode Island, the daughter of Stanley and Elaine (Zimmerman) Krawczyk. She moved with her family often as a child, eventually graduating from high school in Los Angeles, CA. Kathy started working in nursing homes at the age of 16, first as a Nurse’s Aide, then a Licensed Practical Nurse and eventually received her degree as a Registered Nurse. She worked as the Director of Nursing and then as a Nursing Consultant for several nursing homes. Kathy loved collecting antiques and enjoyed the treasure hunt of a local yard sale. She loved her reality shows, especially the Real Housewives franchise. She got her sister, Diane hooked on the Below Deck series and the two of them always discussed the show the day after they were shown. She loved her family and enjoyed the time she spent with her grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband, David Hendrickson; mother, Elaine Krawczyk; daughter, Stacy Hildner; son, Sean VanKranenburg; brother, Stanley Krawczyk; and aunt, Lorelyn Adams.

Kathy was someone who was very set in her ways (she really hated modern technology). She had a great smile and was a loving and caring person who will be missed more than words can say.
