Katherine was born April 19, 1970 and died September 3, 2013. Katherine was a warrior who bravely endured a lifelong battle with diabetes and challenging mental health, rarely if ever complaining. She made countless efforts to overcome her illness and always had high hopes for the future for herself and her beautiful sons. We will miss her honesty, her sense of humor, her willingness to speak the truth to anyone, and especially her acceptance and inclusion of all people.

Katherine is survived by her two sons, Jordan Sudduth and Luis Borrero; her mother, Anne Rosewarne; her father, Philip Rosewarne and his wife, Elizabeth Schwartz; her sister, Amy Rosewarne; and her brothers, Stephen and Brian Rosewarne, as well as a pack of nieces and nephews who adored her.

A celebration of Katherine’s life will be held at the family’s home on Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. at 4442 Greenwood Drive in Okemos. Friends are welcome. Please bring happy memories and photographs! Memorial donations may be made to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (www.JDRF.org) and The Menninger Clinic (www.menningerclinic.com). Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel.

    For many years I have “known” Katherine through Ellie, and her two sons. I would always get an “update” on how they were doing in school, and Katherine’s health status. I was saddened to hear of her passing but please know you and your family played a gigantic part in her life such as it was, and that she is at peace. Thoughts and prayers to sustain you through this difficult time.

    Fondly, Rochelle H

You and Katherine have done a tremendous job raising two amazing boys. I’m sure she was reassured that her sons are well loved and cared for and in the hearts and minds of so many people.
