Katherine Jenda Schrecker

March 29, 1962 — December 7, 2021

Katherine Jenda Schrecker, 59, died on Tuesday Dec. 7, 2021, at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital of complications after contracting Covid-19. She is survived by her husband of 33 years, Donald Schrecker and by two sons, Matthew and Daniel, all from Owensboro; three older sisters, Stasia (Joseph) Blackham of Mooresville, NC; Carol (Walter) Bulawa of Boise, ID; and Victoria (Robert) Meacham of Owensboro.
Born in Syracuse, NY, in 1962 to Stanley and Clare Jenda, Katherine attended Cato-Meridian High School. She moved to Owensboro in 1981 and studied art at Brescia University (BFA). Katherine worked as Administrative Aide to the Vice President/Academic Dean at Brescia University and as Administrative Aide to City Engineer at City of Owensboro. She designed and crafted fine jewelry and owned "Katherine's Jewels," an on-line store.
Katherine, known as "Doodie" to family members, loved listening to music, watching old movies, and reading. Deeply spiritual, Katherine's faith in God was an inspiration to others. She was a member of the Parish of the Immaculate and served on the Prayer Chain. Artisan and artist, mystic, passionate and intense, champion of stray cats, classy dresser, deep conversationalist, daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother, beloved child of God – this was Katherine.
