Kathleen Edwards aka Joanne Kathleen passed away on March 24, 2022, in Ogden, UT. She was born on August 1, 1952, in Durango, Colorado to the late Richard and Vera Edwards.
She married Robert DeVault after high school. She later married Steven M. Wallace, and finally had a brief marriage to George Zinn.
She spent most of her life in Colorado, and Utah and later years in Roy, Utah. Kathleen was a bright student and a talented musician whose life was forever altered by schizophrenia just as she was entering adulthood. She was 69 years old and needed to be free from fear and pain.
She is preceded in death by her parents; brother Duane Harold Edwards; many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
She is survived by her sister, Donna Edwards of Custer, SD; sister-in-law Ruth Edwards of Kaysville, UT; four nieces, several cousins, and Dave Christensen - a great friend who helped her navigate her difficult life during her last years.
Per her wishes no service will be scheduled.
