Some people only walk this earth for a short time. Their departure reminds us that angels are watching over us.

Kathy Price Mortenson passed away suddenly on February 23rd, 2022, in Klamath Falls Oregon. She was born March 4th, 1960, to Stuart and Virginia Price in Ashland Kansas. She was the only daughter of 7 children. (Don, Tom, Mike, Chris, Danny and David Price)

Kathy went to high school in Redwood City and fell madly in love with Gene Mortenson. They spent many years together raising their 3 children, whom she loved very dearly. She had a very strong love for baseball and was a diehard San Francisco Giants Fan. She enjoyed watching her children play sports and loved playing softball herself. She was our Homerun Queen. She was her children’s biggest Fan. She loved more than anything else to watch her children and grandchild play sports and watch them grow. They would know she was there as she was their loudest fan. All who went loved her for her motivation and inspiration. She was known to many as Mama Morty.
