Kathy Aeschliman (68) passed away peacefully at her home on May 4th, 2021. She was born on Feb. 21, 1953, in Washington D.C. to Leonard and Kay Aeschliman, the youngest of three daughters. The family relocated to Lincoln, Nebraska, later that same year. The family moved to Casper in August of 1959 when her Dad accepted a job with the state as a Court Reporter for the District Court.
She graduated from Kelly Walsh High School in 1971 and attended Casper College. She held various jobs before accepting a position with the Wyoming Highway Dept in 1978 as a Communications Technician where she worked for over 20 years before retiring in 2001 due to health issues.
She was a cancer survivor for more than 20 years. She showed great strength, resilience, and courage as she faced many health struggles with very little complaining. Some people said she was the "Kat with nine lives!" She was a fighter till the end.
She enjoyed researching her family’s genealogy which became a life long passion. When she wasn’t examining the family genealogy she loved fishing for trout on the North Platte River with friends and family. She also enjoyed watching different sporting events. She loved watching her beloved Denver Broncos and of course John Elway. She avidly “played the horses” with her sister, Carole.
She was proceeded in death by both parents and her sister Carole. She is survived by her sister, Mary Evans (Doug) and her niece Amy Aeschliman of Casper. She is also survived by her niece Christa Hudalla (Billy) of Athens, GA and her nephew Jeff Hinton (Erin) of Sheridan WY, along with four great nieces and four great nephews, and her beloved dog Delilah. She embraced her role as Aunt and Great Aunt and was very active in all of their lives. She was extremely close to her two great nephews, Spencer and Elliot Aeschliman.
She had a kind, loving and generous spirit. She fought the good fight, she finished the race, she kept the faith and now is at peace. She will be missed. A service will be held at a later time this summer. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorials to the Casper Humane Society, at 849 E. E Street, Casper, WY 82601.
Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Bustard & Jacoby Funeral Home , 600 CY Avenue, Casper, WY 82601.
