Dear Family, What a shock when I saw her picture in the paper. I recognized it immediately. I still remember her talking to me about enrolling the children in Evergreen Lutheran School after home schooling. She also spoke about becoming a doctor. I wish I was at home in Redford, but I'm visiting my son Gregg's family in Florida. Condolences on the lose of your loved one Mr. Warmbier

Kathy's whole life was one of ministry, and I saw that most particularly in her practice. She was so kind, so understanding, so committed to vulnerable people, and such an advocate for them. Several times she came to her alma mater, the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, and spoke to our students, and every time we heard the word "inspiring" afterward. I am sad for your loss, and pray you'll find peace and joy in her memory. Thank you for sharing her with us.

Greetings Kleinert family. I too remember Kathy from Medical School at MSUCOM. She will indeed be missed. She inspired many I believe, for her work in Southeast Michigan and with folks that had a true need. I send my best to you and please know that the MSUCOM family mourns with you.
