Mary “Kathy” Lang (DeFazio) of Saginaw, Minnesota, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 6, 2021.

Kathy was born and raised in Duluth, and graduated from Central High School. She worked as a secretary at the Duluth Air Force Base, and spent two years working as a civilian on Kunsan Air Base in South Korea in the early 1970s. Kathy later spent many years as a secretary and office manager for Bullyan Homes and Jeno Paulucci. She enjoyed traveling, reading, taking care of her pets, playing bocce ball with friends, and most of all spending time with her beloved family, who meant everything to her. Kathy was known for her big heart and infectious laugh, as well as her Italian cooking – you could always count on a wonderful homemade spaghetti dinner every Sunday! She will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her.

Kathy is preceded in death by her father, Mike DeFazio; mother, Doris DeFazio (Wilkinson); and infant daughter, Tamra Salpas. Survived by loving husband Bruce; daughter Deanna; son Ryan and his wife Amanda; grandchildren Kayla and Cleo Koonce (18), Madison Lang (16), and Lucas Lang (13); and her little furry pal, Tobie the cat, who will miss her snuggles every night.

A small private family memorial is planned. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to Duluth Animal Allies.
