Mary Kathleen Schroeder

November 15, 1949 — November 16, 2020

Mary “Kathy” Kathleen Schroeder gained her angel wings Monday, November 16, 2020 at 71 years young at Cozad Community Hospital. Kathy was born November 15, 1949 in Santa Ana, California, the only daughter of Herbert and Charlene (Duckworth) Hargett. She was raised in California and through her younger years she was known for her free spirit and large imagination. While growing up in California, three children were born, Eric, Jason, and Tammy. Kathy gave her life to Christ in the mid 70's and was a devout Christian throughout her life. In the late 70's Kathy and children moved to Nebraska to be closer to her parents. A short period later Kathy was united in marriage to Randy Schroeder and one child, Molly, was born. In 2000, Cozad would become her permanent residence for the rest of her time. Kathy enjoyed many things and the love for her animals was one of her best qualities. From numerous cats and dogs throughout the years she cared for them all. When walking into her home or room you would find tiger/lion print everywhere. She was an avid collector of animal print. You could often find her crafting at the table in her spare time, there was not a thing she couldn’t create. Her home was always seen as comforting with decorations and sense of style inside made you feel right at home. Kathy's current residence was at the Emerald Care Nursing Home. She spent the remainder of her days visiting with family members and had a real knack for adult color books. Kathy is survived by her 4 children, Eric Dodson Jr. and Jason Dodson both of Cozad, Tammy (Robby) Linden of Kearney and Molly Schroeder of Madrid; 6 grandchildren, Angel, Matt, Amber, Abigail, Easton, and Madison; as well as 8 great grandchildren. Kathy was preceded in death by her mother and father Charlene Duckworth and Herbert Hargett; and her husband, Randy Schroeder. Thanks is given to the great care received at Cozad Community Hospital as well as a big thank you to Husker Hounds. In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the family in her name for later designation. Cremation was chosen. Graveside services will be held Thursday, November 19, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at Fairview Cemetery with Harvey Pierce officiating.
