Obituary for Kathryn Mary Philo

Kathryn Mary Philo, beloved wife, mother, and friend, died December 31, 2018 at her home of residence for the past 24 years in Medford, Oregon. Kathy succumbed to a debilitating massive stroke that occurred on September 10, 2018. Kathy was born September 23, 1946 in Kenosha, Wisconsin to John and Reeva Goodwin. She was known for her vivacious and exuberant personality reflected in her love for people, passion for music, and stage musical productions throughout her high school years and education at Carthage College. She was married to US Marine Pilot, David Leet, August 2, 1968 until his declaration of PFOD after three years of MIA status - lost while on mission over Vietnam. Kathy married Steve Philo on December 27, 1975 and they served in pastoral ministry together over 43 years of marriage. Kathy served alongside her husband at Penngrove Community Church, Eagle Life Valley Church, and in the Healing Rooms Ministries of Medford, Oregon. She birthed the Love Company Ministry in 2006 and dedicated her years to passionately "setting the captives free" by encouraging and inspiring the broken and hurting in nursing homes, cancer wards, and to the homeless in streets. She touched lives wherever she went with her genuine love and her "holy Squeezie-Beezie" hugs and her uplifting "love songs". While fighting carcinoid tumors she began a heartstone ministry, touching lives with a gift of a red heart for each one to carry as a reminder of God's love for them. Kathy is survived by her husband, Steve; her sons, Jason, Nathan, and Ian; daughters-in-law, Kathy Reed Philo and Theresa Philo; sister, Sandy Jefferies; brother, Craig Goodwin; and grandsons, Seven, Jarran, Deacon, and Tinnlee.
