Katherine (Kathy) J. Schallock, 43 of Neillsville passed into eternal life on February 14, 2012, at the Methodist Hospital in Rochester, MN. She died from complications associated with her 13 month battle with leukemia. Her fiancé, family and friends were at her bedside. Kathy was born on May 14th, 1968, and from that day forth she lived life to the fullest. She was a character from day one—she was always making people laugh, usually at her crazy antics or from her teasing them. While she was usually laughing and having fun, she was also a huge softy—she cried during every sad movie she saw, loved animals, and would give anybody a shoulder to lean on or advice when it was needed. However, she was incredibly strong when it came to her own pain, and she weathered her illness with dignity and grace. She kept her sense of humor throughout everything, and was always trying to make everything easier on other people. She was an amazing mother, fiancé, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend, and she will always be missed. Surviving her are her loving daughter, Nicole Nagel of Jacksonville, FL, her mother, Jo Anne Campitelle, of Neillsville, Wi, her father, Roger Hanby, of Granton, WI, her sister, Terry Sims of Jacksonville, FL, her brother David (Mary Jo Meier) Hanby, of Neillsville, her step-mom Darlene Hanby of Granton, WI her step-sister Karen Walls, of Mena, Arkansas, her step-sister Gail Lanswehr of Stratford, WI, her step-brother, Keith (Alex) Turville, of Jacksonville, FL, her loving friend and fiancé, Rick Dailey of Neillsville, WI, his son Trevor Dailey of Linden, WI, her best friend Lori (Mark) Shaw of Marshfield, WI, her dog Abbie, and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Kathy was predeceased by her grandparents, John Campitelle, Mary Jane Russell, Meta Hanby, and Richard Hanby, and her devoted dog of many years, Fritzy. A Memorial service will be held for Kathy at 11:00 a.m., Thursday, February 16, 2012 at the Gesche Funeral Home in Neillsville. Pastor Douglas Bjerke will officiate.
