Kathleen Marie Soumis

Kathleen (Kathy) Marie Soumis, age 76, of Laughlin Nevada, was called home on October 4, with her husband at her side.

She was born December 1, 1945 in Hancock, Michigan to the late Touno Harju and Gertrude (Prusila) Harju.

Kathy was raised in White Pine Michigan until she was in the seventh grade, and then the family relocated to South Range Michigan.

She attended Jeffers High School, graduating with the class of 1964.

Kathy was united in marriage to Jerome Soumis of Chassell Michigan on February 12, 1972. Kathy and Jerome lived in Chassell for many years and raised two sons. Later, they moved to Las Vegas Nevada, and then made their home in Laughlin Nevada. Many days were enjoyed soaking in the Nevada sun, and playing Yahtzee.

Many Michiganders enjoyed visiting them in their Laughlin home, where Kathy would prepare food for many. A good time was had by all!

Kathy is survived by her husband Jerome and two sons; Michael of Los Angeles California, and Jerome of Buckeye Arizona. She also is survived by two grandchildren, special friend Jim Perabo, and many nieces and nephews, and her sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws. She will be missed by all.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held on Friday, October 21, 2022 at 11am at the St. Ignatius of Loyola church in Houghton Michigan with Father John Martignon officiating; with a luncheon to follow in the parish hall. Visitation will be before service from 9:30a.m to 10:45a.m. at St. Ignatius of Loyola Church.
