Obituary for Kathryn M. Glasnap

Kathryn “Kathy” M. Glasnap, 66, a well-known Door County artist passed away at Door County Memorial Hospital on Friday, Aug. 28, 2015. She was born in Appleton , WI, the daughter of the late Carl and Marcie Glasnap.

Kathy began drawing and painting at an early age and after her graduation from Xavier High School, launched her successful career as a full time painter of watercolors and acrylics. She attended many art shows, selling her paintings all around the United States. On weekends with more than one show, Kathy’s friends would help with the displays. She moved to Door County in 1995 and opened her own gallery, where she thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to meet new people and make lasting friends.

Kathy leaves a legion of friends, employees and collectors who will miss her greatly. She was preceded in death by her parents, relatives and friends.

Because Kathy always loved time spent with friends visiting over a meal, it was her wish that a memorial buffet luncheon be held. The luncheon will be on Thursday, Sept. 10th, at 11:30 to 3:00 at Alexander’s Restaurant in Fish Creek.

In lieu of flowers, please make a memorial donation to a Door County Charity of your choice.

Thank you to Dr. Hogan and Dr. Rebhan for their care over the years and to the Door County Memorial Hospital, especially the ICU for their compassion and great care. Kathy appreciated the kindnesses she received from the staff at Golden Living Center-Dorchester and Anna’s Healthcare over the last 11 months and the special help she received from the Physical and Occupation Therapy staff.

One of Kathy’s thoughts about her hereafter was, “I will finally have my own personal chef.”
