Kathi Joan Shull

ShullKathiW

May 15, 1948 – May 22, 2013

Kathi Joan Shull passed away peacefully at her home in Davis on May 22, 2013, in the presence of her immediate family after battling cancer for 2 1/2 years. Kathi was born on May 15, 1948, in Corvallis, Ore., to Paul and Edna Franzen. Her growing-up years occurred in Myrtle Point, Ore., a small town in southwest Oregon, where she was involved with many activities centered around friends, outdoor sports, cheerleading, baby-sitting and church.

She graduated from Myrtle Point High School in 1966 and from Southern Oregon College in Ashland, Ore., in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She married Lee Shull, whom she had known since elementary school, on Dec. 16, 1967, in Vancouver, Wash.

In 1970, Lee and Kathi moved to Corvallis, where Kathi taught second and third grades while Lee completed his graduate work at Oregon State University. Kathi loved teaching and was singled out many times for her accomplishments. In 1974, Kathi gave birth to the couple’s first child, Samuel Lee. In 1975, the family relocated to East Lansing, Mich., for Lee’s job at Michigan State University. Kathi was a stay-at-home mom. In 1977, Elizabeth Ann (Liz) was born.

In 1981, the family moved to Davis for Lee’s job as a UC Davis professor. Kathi worked on the UCD campus for 27 years, 24 of which was in the Internship and Career Center as a career counselor primarily to graduate students and teachers. She loved counseling young people, helping them initiate their professional careers. This passion carried over to First Baptist Church of Davis’ “Roaring 20s” ministry, a ministry focused on young professionals. Kathi retired from UCD in 2008 to help daughter Liz raise Kathi’s first grandchild, Madeline.

In December 2010, Kathi was diagnosed with metastatic colon cancer after which she endured more than two years of chemotherapy and endless doctors’ appointments. Through it all, Kathi never complained, never questioned God’s purpose, and found ways to use her situation to minister to other cancer patients and medical staff at the UCD Cancer Center. Kathi’s life passions were loving God, walking daily under His direction, reading the Bible, being the best wife she could be, being the best mom and grandmother she could be, being a friend to many wonderful people who came and went during her life, and providing a wonderful home life for her family.

She is survived by her husband of 45 years, Lee; her two children, Sam and Liz; her daughter-in-law, Sheila; four grandchildren, Madeline, Faith, Paul and Jude; two older brothers, Paul Franzen and John Franzen; and one sister, Janis Arnsdorf. Her parents preceded her in death.

Donations in Kathi’s name may be made to Citizens Who Care (www.citizenswhocare.us), 409 Lincoln Ave., Woodland, CA  95695.
