Katheryn Noeth, 63, of Collinsville, born Saturday, May 25, 1957 in Granite City, joined God on Tuesday, September 29, 2020.
Katheryn was a member of Mother of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. She loved talking religion with her bible study group and spent her days enjoying the warm sunshine in her garden and canning the fruits of her labor. She was famous for her cherry pie and her salsa was requested by many. Kathy was a self employed artist that captured the beauty of life through colored pencils. She was a warrior that never let anything stop her from living every day to its fullest, albeit usually with a mix of four letter words. She treasured her friends, children, and grandchildren and embraced every moment with them. She had the heart of lion and a hippie soul. Instead of complaining about her hardships she used her light and wisdom to guide others through their toughest times. The impact of the lives she touched will spread through generations to come.
She was preceded in death by her father, Thomas Byrne; and her brother, Timothy Byrne.
Surviving are her children, Erin (Chris) Dietrich of Collinsville, and Kara (Joshua) Stroder of St. Louis, MO; grandchildren, Aubrie, Riley and Tucker Dietrich; mother, Carol (nee Hawkins) Byrne of Troy; her brother Kevin (Linda) Byrne of Troy; sister-in-law, DeeAnne Byrne-Scott of Troy; nieces, nephews, and many friends.
