Woodlawn Funeral Home Obituaries

Kathleen Mary O`Hare , Age: 75
October 10, 1947 - April 17, 2023

Kathleen Mary O’Hare, age 75, went home to be with Jesus on April 17, 2023. Kathleen’s
children and their spouses were by her side when she passed.
Kathleen was born in Olympia WA on October 10, 1947 to John and Ella O’Hare. She attended
St. Michaels Grade School and then St. Placids. She was crowned May Queen at St Michael's.
She graduated from Olympia High School in 1965.
Kathleen is survived by her three Children. Karine Kay Swanson Gibson (Paul), Lori Ann
Swanson (Tami) and David Edward Swanson. She is also survived by two Brothers, Pat O’Hare
and John O’Hare, 4 Grandchildren, Kadesh Swanson (Anna) Jared Swanson (Christine), Izhar
Swanson and Avarie Gibson, along with 6 Great Grandchildren. She was preceded in death by
her Parents.
Kathleen’s Faith in our Lord Jesus, as a born again Christian is her legacy. She shared her
Faith boldly with many people, often reaching those that were cast aside. Though our hearts
grieve, we are comforted, knowing as she approached the gates of Heaven, she heard “Well
done, good and Faithful Servant. Enter into the Joy of your Lord”.
At Kathleen’s request, there will be no service. In memory of Kathleen, her children ask for any
donations to be given to Jimmy Swaggart Ministries.
