Obituary of Kathryn Elizabeth Obergfell McDowell

Kathryn Elizabeth Obergfell McDowell, of Serenity Pearl in Picayune, Mississippi, passed away on March 15, 2022, at the age of 87. She is a native of Delta, Colorado, born on November 1, 1934 to Philip Obergfell and Maggie Tessiatore Obergfell. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 56 years, Tilden McDowell; a daughter, Stephanie McDowell; and brother, Phillip Eugene Obergfell.

Kathryn is survived by a son, Patrick M. McDowell and siblings Mary Margaret Obergfell Mezzapelle, Martha Ann Obergfell Downing, Janet Joan Obergfell Phillips, John Frederick Obergfell, and Phyllis Ann Obergfell Waltman.

Kathryn received a master’s degree from the University of New Mexico and was formerly employed as a secretary with the U. S. Embassy in Bahrain.  Growing up in Delta, she loved spending time riding the family horse Rex, tagging along with her pop, and having fun with brothers and sisters.  In her later years, her favorite pastime was birdwatching.  Kathryn will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
