Kathleen Joan Sell

Kathleen Joan Sell, 80, passed away on Christmas morning at Fond du Lac Lutheran Home. She was born to the late Joseph and Delores (Krumbein) Solamita on August 31, 1943.

She married Thomas Sell at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Fond du Lac on July 15, 1972. They met while Thomas was on tour in Japan during the Vietnam war and wrote letters back and forth for a year and a half. When Thomas’s tour ended, the first stop he made after arriving home was to finally see Kathleen. After dating for 4 months, they were engaged to be married and just recently celebrated their 51st year wedding anniversary.

Kathy enjoyed camping with Tom and going to Brewer games. She liked going up North and spending time with her best friend, Kenny.

Kathy is survived by her loving husband of 51 years, Tom, daughter Karrieann Sell, sister Laurie Solamita, brother Richard (Joan) Solamita and Cooper, her grandpuppy, as well as other relatives and friends. In addition to her parents, Kathy was preceded in death by her sister Karen Thresher and brother Michael Solamita.

Special thanks to all the nurses and staff at the Fond du Lac Lutheran home for the exceptional care that they gave Kathy for the year and a half. Also special thanks to the hospice staff and all the support they gave our family.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, January 12th at Zacherl Funeral Home, 875 E Division Street, Fond du Lac, at 3:00 p.m.
