Kathy (Schlatter) Stanley

September 16, 1950 ~ July 23, 2022 (age 71)


Kathy Stanley, of Van Wert, Ohio, passed away under hospice Care at the Celina Manor on Saturday, July 23, 2022, after a brief battle with dementia.

Kathy was born September 16, 1950, in Van Wert, Ohio and was a lifelong area resident. She graduated from Van Wert High School in 1968 and was a devoted employee to Kennedy Manufacturing for over 40 years, from where she retired.

She is survived by her son, Todd (Diane) Daniels of Bowling Green and her beloved granddaughter, Madison Daniels, of Defiance.  She is also survived by cousins, Bill (Marcy) Wellman of Celina, Cheryl (Tom) Compton of Cincinnati and Barb (Bud) Reed of Van Wert.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Joan (Putman) Schlatter, Aunts Becky (Jim) Agler and Betty (William) Wellman and her spouse, Jim Stanley.

If you knew Kathy, you knew her greatest joys in life were her son and granddaughter.  Her entire family was the cornerstone of her life.  She had the wonderful ability to make friends with anyone. She loved a good coffee from Brewed Expressions, enjoyed reading and cross stitching, her Longaberger Baskets, visiting with friends at the Elks and spending countless hours shopping and decorating for each holiday.  Christmas was her absolute favorite.

A private graveside service will be held at Woodland Cemetery at a later date.

Preferred memorials may be made to the Van Wert County Humane Society or Eggerss Stadium Renovation Project.

Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded at, Tribute Wall.
