Kathy Kononen Comstock fought a brave and long battle of lung cancer for 7 years and passed away on April 4, 2021 in Joseph, Oregon.

Kathy was born to George and Norma Kononen on August 4, 1950 in Pendleton, Oregon.  She was raised in Helix, Oregon, graduating from Griswold High School in 1968.  She attended 2 years at Blue Mountain Community College, where she received an associate degree.  She started work at Pendleton Woolen Mills in 1970 as an administrative assistant and eventually became clothing store manager until her early retirement in 2000.  Kathy married Steven Comstock in May of 1984.  In 2000 they decided to head out in their travel trailer and see the sights.  They ended up in El Campo, Texas and stayed there until Steve’s death in October of 2002.  Kathy moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2003 and worked as an administrative assistant at Ford Country and Findlay Chevrolet until her retirement in January 2021.  Kathy moved to Pendleton in February 2021 to be closer to her family.

Kathy is survived by her sisters Joyce (Dennis) Robertson, of Boise, Idaho, along with their 3 children, Paul, Amanda and Beth, and 2 great nephews, and her sister Sally (Larry) Blanc of Pendleton, Oregon, along with their sons, Any and Joey, and 3 great nieces and 1 great nephew.
