Katherine “Kati” J. Serplus, 41, Scranton, passed away unexpectedly this week. She was born August 16, 1981, the only daughter of Linda McDonnell Serplus. Kati was a lively, adventurous person who cared deeply for others.
In her early life, Kati was a devoted student of dance and dedicated Girl Scout. As she grew older, Kati became a prolific musician, learning to play both piano and guitar on her own. She was educated by the Scranton School District and had a professional background in telecommunications. Kati’s most fulfilling moments were times spent with her beloved daughter, Melissa Schneider (Scranton), and her love and care will never be forgotten.
Kati was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Harry E. McDonnell, F.D. and Aleene King “Kingie” McDonnell.
A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at Immaculate Conception Church, 801 Taylor Avenue, Scranton on Monday, August 14 at 10AM, Reverend Fr. Jeffrey Tudgay, pastor presiding.
