     Kathleen Bobette Sershon was born Dec. 7, 1940 in Chicago, Ill. She was the daughter of John and Kathleen (Bain) Sershon. Kathy was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. Kathy went to high school in Antioch, Ill. She married Richard Behrens on April 12, 1958 at the Milburn Congregational Church, Milburn, Ill. The couple moved to Cascade in 1974 and in 2000 they moved to Englewood, Fla., and later to Placida, Fla. Kathy was many things to many to many people but the most important thing to her was her marriage to Richard for past 59 years. She was the glue that held her family together. Her favorite time of the year was Christmas when the whole family would gather together for the annual Behrens Christmas Party where they would fill the hall of the hotel with much laughter and many great family memories of the past and present. Kathy was loved by all and will be missed by many forever and always.
