Kathleen Ruth Logan May 27, 1933 - November 4, 2023

On Saturday, November 4, 2023, at the age of 90, Kathleen Ruth Logan, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother peacefully passed away surrounded by her family.

Kathleen was born on May 27, 1933, in Portland, Oregon, to Dr. Earl Marion Anderson and Ruth Ingeborg Anderson. Kathleen attended Kennedy Elementary School and Jefferson High School in Portland, Oregon, where she met her future husband Dr. Norman Dean Logan. The two married on June 20, 1952. Kathleen and Norman had three children; Steve, Craig and Kathy. She loved being a mother and homemaker while also supporting her husband through medical school, residency, military service, and during his career.

Norm and Kathleen were active members of Augustana and Trinity Lutheran Churches. Family was the greatest blessing to Kathleen, and she often participated in activities, such as golfing and fishing, for the sheer joy of being together. She loved her Swedish heritage and was famous for her traditional Christmas Eve smorgasbord meal. Kathleen also loved gardening, reading, and especially John Madden era NFL football. Kathleen treasured time with friends, both young and old, who always found her door open and a place at her table. In her later years, Kathleen’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her greatest joy.

Kathleen was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Norman, and her second son, Craig. She is survived by her remaining children, Steve Logan and Kathy Wirth (Michael), and daughters-in-law, Katherine Logan and Sally Logan, as well as her six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. A
