Kathy Sue Andersen (Cleveland) | Obituary

Kathy Sue Andersen (Cleveland), 55, of Snoqualmie, passed away on the morning of August 3rd, 2021, peacefully in her home, surrounded by her children; Ashley Irish, Janie Boe, Travis Irish, Cagle Andersen, Katina Andersen, Casie May Erwin, Michael Andersen II and others. She earned her wings to heaven after fighting the vicious battle of cancer for a year and eight months.

Born to Judith Celine Cleveland (Wharton) on May 17th, 1966, in Lewiston, Idaho. Kathy and her two sibling Kim Ballard and Kevin Cleveland moved from Texas to Oklahoma adding other siblings to the mix, Jamile, Jacob, Jessica, Les and Traci. When Kathy’s mother died from cancer in 1981, Kathy and her two siblings were welcomed into the home of Susane Kay Lemm and John with open arms, along with their children: Timothy, Amy, Shane and Stacy.

Family was everything to Kathy, from her past experiences she had learned blood was not what made you family. She believed that family is the people you surround yourself with, the ones there for you no matter what. After living in Germany, Kathy moved to the Snoqualmie Valley where she met the love of her life Michael Andersen. The Snoqualmie valley was blessed with such a loving, caring soul who quickly took on the title of “The Valley Mom”. Kathy’s family kept growing, as she was a grandma to 14 grandkids and many adopted valley babies. Kathy loved to be there for people no matter what they were going through. She treated them with intense love and respect, willing to help any way she could. When Kathy wasn’t with her family and friends, or working at the local gas station; she was out having the time of her life dancing to her favorite artists at concerts, with a drink in her hand, watching her seahawks play or sunbathing on a beach listening to the tide at peace. Kathy will be truly missed as she touched so many people’s lives.

There will be a celebration of life held for her on Monday; August 30th, 2021 at Wild Flower Bistro (228 West North Bend Way ste B, North Bend, WA 98045) 1pm-5pm. Come wearing your favorite Seahawks gear or your favorite sunhat as Kathy was a BIG fan of both. Let us celebrate for Kathy as she was reunited with her grandbabies in heaven; her mother; Aunt Sue; her best friend Anushka and her two daughters; her brother-in-law Danny; and many more that have left us too soon.
