Kathleen Jeanette Gregory Weinberg, born September 9, 1933 and passed away May 23, 2020 at the age of 86, she is survived by her three children, Paul C. Weinberg, Nina Lawles and her husband Bobby and Allan J. Weinberg and his wife Lois Anne, eighteen grandchildren and thirty plus great grandchildren. Kathleen has one living brother Byron Gregory and his wife Ruth.
Kathleen was born and raised in Perry, IA where she was a member of her high school basketball team and played viola with her high school orchestra. Upon graduation from high school, she moved to California with her family and found a job as an administrative assistant for Civil Service. It was here that she met the love of her life, Ray. Kathleen was the typical army wife who accompanied Ray to all of his assignments i.e. Ft. Ord. CA; Ft. Bliss, TX; Vicenza, Italy; Ft. Sill, OK; Babenhausen-Ober-Amergau, Germany; Frankfurt, Germany; Ft. Monmouth. NJ; Ft. Gordon, GA and she held down the fort when Ray did two tours in Vietnam.
Kathleen fully retired after twenty years with Civil Service in 1968 and promptly hit the road with Ray in their RV. They traveled the US and Canada for the next 15 years making new friends along the way. Kathleen was an avid quilt maker, amassing enough material to rival Hancock Fabrics. She enjoyed playing bridge and board games, learning to cope with Ray’s re-writing game rules according to “Weinberg’s Rules”. Kathleen also bowled on bowling leagues with her family at their different assignments. Later, she spent many years accompanying Ray and the boys on their bowling tournaments when she hung up her bowling shoes.
At this moment no services have been arranged. The family plans to have a celebration of life at a later date. Kathleen will be buried at Concord Cemetery in New Market, AL along side her husband and her parents.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be made to the Wounded Warriors project.
Hazel Green Funeral Home is honored to serve the family.
