Kathy Lynn Stockbridge: April 2, 1952 – Oct. 17, 2020

Kathy Lynn Stockbridge, 68, passed away Oct. 17 at her home in Burlington, Wash., after a year-long battle with cancer. She is survived by her husband, James (Jay) Stockbridge, of Burlington; two sons, Mark Stockbridge, also of Burlington, and Matthew Stockbridge, of Seattle; a daughter-in-law, Margaret Stockbridge; and two grandsons, Edward and Henry Stockbridge, of Seattle.

The niece of well-known Oak Harbor, Wash., educators Albert and Carol Prato, Kathy graduated in 1974 from Central Washington University and worked in Oak Harbor during her first two years as a special education teacher. There she met and married her husband, Jay, in 1975.

The couple moved to Olympia, Wash., where Kathy continued her teaching career until 1986, when they moved to the Spokane area. There she worked as a special education preschool teacher and later as an education specialist before retiring in 2015. They moved to Burlington in 2017.

Kathy made deep and lasting friendships wherever she went and will be missed by many people on both sides of the state. She was a talented quilter who devoted thousands of hours to creating artistic quilts and wall hangings of her own design, many of which she gave away to friends and coworkers.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in her name to Hospice of the Northwest.
