Kathleen "Kathy" Marie (Lind) Lytikainen, age 74, passed away on December 13th, 2017 in Williamsburg, VA.

Born on September 4, 1943 and raised in L'Anse, MI, Kathy was the daughter of the late Victor A. Lind and Lillian (Stahl) Lind. She was the valedictorian of the L'Anse High School class of 1961.

Kathy married Robert C. Lytikainen on September 23rd, 1963. Together, they raised three sons while being stationed throughout the U.S. and Germany.

Kathy graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in accounting, and passed the CPA exam on her first attempt. After a distinguished career, she retired from Lockheed Martin in 2003.

Following her retirement, Kathy moved to Williamsburg, VA where she continued to serve her family, friends and the community. Kathy was a treasurer and board member for Faith In Action, and was an active member of King of Glory Lutheran church.

Kathy's greatest joy came from being with family and friends. She loved to host for the holidays, travel with friends, and spend weeks at the beach with her family.

Kathy is survived by her three sons: Carl Robert Lytikainen (Kimberly Lytikainen), Erik Wayne Lytikainen (Lysa Lytikainen) and Mark Steven Lytikainen. Also left to cherish her memory are her grandchildren, Sarah, Taylor, Jonathan, Katherine, David, Luke, Oliver, Mercedes and Aaron.
