Kathryn P. (Patrick) Beins lost her battle with cancer and died at home in Baldwin City, Kansas, on July 14, 2010. She was born July 3, 1962, and was 48 at the time of her death.
Kathy was, until the time of her passing, the Director of Sales for Teva Animal Health. She had been in the veterinary pharmaceutical industry for 27 years.

Other surviving family members include her parents, David and Ann Patrick; brothers, Mike, Dennis and John Patrick; sisters Teresa Eschenrode, Carole Murray and Rhonda Winkler; four brothers-in-law; three sisters-in-law and 14 nieces and nephews.
