Kathleen Jameson, beloved daughter, sister, mother, aunt and friend, of Loyalsock Township, passed away on July 3, 2019, peacefully in her home with family present, on the day after her 68th birthday.
Kathleen was the daughter of Eugene and Arlene (LaPan) Eck Jr., of South Williamsport. She was the fourth of eleven children. Kathleen graduated from Saint Joseph’s High School and attended Marywood College.
Kathleen was retired from her job as an administrative assistant at Lycoming County Courthouse; in her dry humor she liked to say she was the certified card-carrying person who told people that their jury duty summons was not an invitation.
Kathleen was a basket weaver and a master seamstress; she had a beautiful singing voice, could play the acoustic guitar well and on occasion composed songs that she and her sisters sang in harmony; she wrote poetry, enjoyed gardening, watching birds and loved to be outdoors, especially hiking the Loyalsock Trail with friends; she was also a talented artist with watercolors, colored pencils, acrylic and fabric paint. Kathleen loved adventures and was always interested in meeting new people with an open and accepting mind. She hiked the Sierra Nevada’s in California and traveled to Alaska. She was a humanitarian and completed a mission trip to Uganda where she helped educate people in agriculture. Witnessing the third world affected her attitude toward material possessions which she attempted to shed in her own life. She was very knowledgeable about the Bible and faithfully studied it. She learned to love the stars as a little girl and never lost that fascination. She had a radiant smile and a light in her eyes, which she gave freely to multitudes of friends and family.
Kathleen is survived by her son, Donald (Sandy) Jameson; her parents; and her siblings, Linda (Russ) Bobkoskie, Don (Anita) Eck, Carol (Dave) Shire, Phyllis (Steve) Frey, Steve (Becky) Eck, Gail (John) Nordlof, Sharon (Jan) Faust, Joyce (Roman) Szymberski, Cyndi (Mike) Mussina, Michael (Ruth) Eck; and some very special friends.
She is preceded in death by her granddaughter, Jovie Eliza, whom she has now joined in eternity.
