Our loving sister, aunt, and friend Kathleen (Kathy) VanDuzer, 58, of Cuyahoga Falls passed away Monday, April 5, 2010. She was born in Wadsworth, Ohio almost 59 years ago to David Sr. and Rosemary VanDuzer. She spent most of her adult life in Akron and Cuyahoga Falls. She was retired from Babcock and Wilcox with 40 years of service, this past October. She had many friends there.
