KATHRYN E. “KATY” BERQUIST age 34, died peacefully at home after her battle with cancer; cherished daughter of Allen Berquist and Janel (nee Aicher) Moore (husband Bruce); loving sister of Brian (wife Jennie); devoted aunt of Abby; dearest close friend of Nate Allen; beloved niece, cousin, and friend of many.
Katy was born in Cleveland, Ohio and graduated from Richmond Heights High School, Class of 2005. She went on to graduate from The University of Dayton in 2010 with a Mechanical Engineering degree. She loved her many years living in California and especially enjoyed traveling internationally, rock climbing, and hiking. While all who know Katy feel her 34 years of life was way too short, it is about what she did in those years. She was proud to have seen Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Ireland, Thailand, Germany, Belgium, and Turkey. Katy was fiercely independent, strong-willed, always laughing and had an amazing sense of humor, and certainly lived by her own rules. She will be deeply missed by many and remembered always.
