Kathleen Elizabeth (Farley) Haluska born August 17, 1946 in Des Moines IA, entered into rest August 25, 2022 in Omaha, NE.
Kate grew up working at the family grocery store, Paul Farley’s SuperValu in Des Moines IA. She went on to attend Drake University where she studied Art History. In October 1969 she married the love of her life Andrew Haluska and together they raised three sons while living in Des Moines IA, Fort Collins CO, Albuquerque NM and Fort Walton Beach FL.
She was very artistic and loved to paint and make crafts that she shared with family and sold at craft fairs and local galleries. Her love for Christmas Decorating was admired by everyone that walked into her home or drove by her front yard.
She enjoyed spending time baking her famous chocolate chip cookies and cooking amazing Italian dishes for her family. In her free time she would love to find a good treasure at an estate sale, go to the movies or attend dinner with her friends. Kate’s children and grandchildren were her pride and joy. You would often find her talking about them while smiling from ear to ear.
