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.
