Kathleen Frances (Edgecomb, Dundas) Sundermeyer, RN, of Eaton Rapids, Michigan
Passed away July 4, 2019 at the age of 75 at home surrounded by her dear family and cat, Whiff. Kathleen was born on March 12, 1944, in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, the daughter of Charles and Margaret (Conn) Edgecomb. She was a lifelong nurse, and graduated with her RN diploma from Grace Hospital of Nursing, devoting her 47-year career to mental health nursing.
Kathleen’s faith journey started in the Lutheran Church and grew when she married Pastor Carl Sundermeyer and supported him as First Lady of Pittsford Congregational Church, the First Congregational Church in Eaton Rapids, and Mayflower Congregational Church of Lansing. She loved her cats and dogs and enjoyed singing in the choir, reading, playing the saxophone, camping, and being outdoors. Kathleen’s faith was of the utmost importance in her life, helping to mold her into a strong, caring woman, nurse, and devoted mother.
