BRADFIELD KATHY OSSMAN Died unexpectedly and peacefully October 31, 2012. Predeceased by husband George Bradfield and survived by daughter Blair; sisters Juanita and Raymona; brothers Gay, Nito, and Tim; and many nieces and nephews. Kathy was an "Old Black Bottom Detroiter" attending Barstow Elementary, Miller High, and Wayne State University. She taught at the George, Longfellow and Stewart Elementary Schools. She worked tirelessly for children in DAPCEP and her beloved Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. Always known for her unusual voice and distinctive gait, Kathy in early years was active in several local drama and cultural groups. Her energy and opinions were legion. She possessed an indefatigable wit and hated to miss anything. She was a poet, actress, adventuress, intrepid traveler, and raconteur and became a devotee of African American Art. She appreciated fine jewelry and furs, yet was the epitome of thriftiness and pragmatism. Kathy was unique, peerless and so special to her family and many friends.

Had the pleasure of knowing Kathy through mutual friends for over 40 years, most often at social gatherings with friends and going to cultural events, she was always had great energy and was a joy to be around.

Deepest sympathy to all. One promise written is (John 11:25)Jesus said to her: "I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercise faith in me even though he dies, will come to life."
