Obituary for Kathleen "Kay" L. Sehr

KATHLEEN "KAY" LOUISE SEHR was born to Lemuel and Blanche (Chatelle) Rolph on April 17, 1929 at a midwife’s home in Luverne, Minnesota. She was raised with her family east of Hardwick, Minnesota, in Battle Plain Township. Kay attended District 55 Country School and then attended and graduated from Luverne High School. She furthered her education by attending business school in Minneapolis. On May 2, 1950 Kathleen was united in marriage to Nicholas Sehr at St. Catherine Catholic Church in Luverne. The couple made their home in rural Magnolia Township southeast of Luverne where they farmed. Kay was a devoted wife, homemaker, and mother to their four children. In 1964 they moved to an acreage south of Luverne. Nick preceded Kay in death on May 14, 2008. A short time later, Kay moved into a home on Crawford Street in Luverne. In 2015, she moved to the Good Samaritan Society – Mary Jane Brown Home in Luverne. Kay continued to reside there until Sunday, September 29, 2019, when she went to be with her Lord at the age of 90 years, five months and 12 days.

Kay was a lifetime member of St. Catherine Catholic Church in Luverne, Minnesota, having been baptized on April 29, 1929, confirmed on June 20, 1943 and married all at the church. She was very faithful to her prayer time in the adoration chapel for church. Kay was a member of Extension Club for many years and truly enjoyed vegetable and flower gardening. She and Nick traveled all over the United States and shared many group tours. Two of her favorite activities were ballroom dancing and square dancing. She and Nick attended dances nearly every Saturday evening with the “The Saturday Night Club” couples for over forty years.

Kay will be lovingly remembered by her four children and their spouses, Sue and Bob Ohnsorg, of Chaska, Minnesota, Steve and Becky Sehr, of Luverne, Kathy Sehr and Grant Johnson of Stillwater, Minnesota, and Mark and Reva Sehr of Luverne; eight grandchildren, Jennie (Chad) Killian, Micky (Heidi) Sehr, Paul (Linnea) Ohnsorg, Jeff Sehr, Peter (Ashlea) Ohnsorg, Katie (Eric) Wahlund, Matthew Sehr and Averill Sehr; six great-grandchildren, Casey and Carter Sehr, Parker and Riley Killian, Luke Ohnsorg and Devin Wahlund; one sister, Albertine Appel of Ivanhoe, Minnesota; and one brother, Paul (Mryna) Rolph of Benson, Minnesota. She was preceded in death by her husband, Nick; her parents; two sisters, Virginia Kuske and Margaret Kasemodel; and three brothers, Jerome Rolph, Phillip Rolph and Stanley Rolph.
