    Kathleen P. Nemec, 61, of Boscobel, Wis., passed away Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020, surrounded by her loving family at her residence in rural Boscobel.

Kathleen graduated from Lake City High School and then attended University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire. She received her bachelor's degree in history. After her marriage to Larry, they moved to St. Paul so Larry was able to finish his education and in 1982, they relocated to Evansville, Ind. After starting their family, Kathleen cherished the opportunity to stay home and raise her family. In 1988, they moved to Fennimore and with her children in school, she began working with the Fennimore School District. She became known as the best tutor a student could have and spent countless hours helping the Fennimore students achieve their goals. With numerous graduation ceremonies at Fennimore High School, Kathleen was often personally recognized from the student body for helping them with their studies. Kathleen also loved her time with the Fennimore music program and was very instrumental with the hand bell choir.  Thanks to the tireless efforts of Kathleen a truly beautiful, state awarded, bell choir has thrived within the Fennimore school.
