Kathleen (Kathie) Ann Gard, 69, of Citrus Heights, California, was granted her Angel wings on Sunday, May 1, 2016.  After battling cancer for a year and a half, She spent her last days with her loving family and friends before passing peacefully.

Kathie was born on Friday, September 13, 1946 to Tom and Mary Turpin.  She grew up in the bay area with her family and was always the quiet and unassuming leader of her six siblings.  She will be sorely missed by her brothers and sisters; Linda, Heather, Tom, Wayne, and Maureen.  Her commitment to her family and care she provided her mom during her illness was unparalleled, and a gift that will always be cherished.
Kathie is survived by her adoring husband of 43 years, Pat Gard; her two loving children, Ron and Jannell; Step daughter Sheila, 7 amazing grandchildren, Joseph, Kristina, Jessalyn, Brieanne, Raelieann, Brayden; and 2 great grandchildren, Ayla and Emily.   Pat and Kathy lived in the Campbell, CA, where they raised their family and made lasting and endearing friendships.  After retiring to Folsom, California they loved traveling the country and experienced many adventures abroad, but always loved being at home, near their children and grandchildren.
Kathie was and will always be a ray of sunshine filling our hearts and memories with warmth and joy.
