February 13, 1950 - April 26, 2017
Life Legacy Kathleen Marie Spooner was born February 13, 1950 in San Diego CA. Her parents are John and Alice Cawley both also from San Diego. She has a sister Patricia and brothers James and John. Her husband of forty three years is Lawrence Spooner. Kathy spent the early years of her life in San Diego and moved with her family while in high school to Lexington Massachusetts. There she attended Middlesex Community College and earned a hospital lab technician certificate. While vacationing in San Diego to visit her grandmother she met Larry who was in the Navy stationed on a destroyer. Coincidentally Larry had spent his high school years in Peabody Massachusetts just a few miles from Lexington. She quickly packed her bags and headed west with her brother John. Larry and Kathy were married in 1974 in El Cajon, both graduated from San Diego State University and both started careers in the medical field. In 1980 they moved to La Habra and bought a small house across the street from the Womens Club. Kathy started working in the Friendly Hills Community Hospital Lab. Her first child Brian came along in 1981 and then Greg eighteen months later. In 1990 she became a credentialed substitute teacher in the La Habra school district and worked both jobs until the hospital closed. Her substitute career lasted until just past 2012. She was a member of the OLG church family since 1980 and taught catechism classes for almost ten years. She enjoyed her faith, family, many friends, two bunco groups, traveling and her four grandchildren. She was able to beat breast cancer in 2010 but it came back again in 2015. After a lengthy arduous 16 month battle involving 32 chemo sessions, 12 radiation treatments and two operations to repair bone lesions and fractures she passed away in her home with her family present on April 26. She loved watching old movies, TCM, Elvis and Lucille Ball and will be missed by the many people whose lives she touched over the years.
