DELMAR – Kathleen Olga (Tesch) Heere, born February 17, 1942, joined her husband William August Heere, in their heavenly home on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.
She was the mother, mother-in-law and friend to Joanna Heere and Jesse Williams, and Dianna and Paul Koch. Kathy was blessed to be “Nanny” to the best grandchildren ever created – Noah Xavier and Liam James Koch; sister of William (Sandra), Marilyn (the late Paul) Lajoy, Susan (Robert) Denninger. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews and grand Kitties. In addition to her husband, she was predeceased by parents William G. and Rita (Hines) Tesch.

Applebee Funeral Home has been serving Delmar and its surrounding communities since 1904. This stately brick building is a defining point of Delmar's Four Corners. However, it was in Clarksville where the family's first funeral home was located at the Clark House, a Greek revival style home built by Adam Clark in the mid 1820's.
