Kathleen Elizabeth (Fuchs) Owen

October 18, 1944 – August 24, 2023

Kathleen Elizabeth (Fuchs) Owen, aged 78, passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 24th.  Kay was an Omaha native, a graduate of Westside High School and the University of Nebraska.  She was a proud Kappa Kappa Gamma where she first learned bridge which became a passion of hers later in life.  An interior designer by trade, she had an incredible eye for décor and style, ultimately opening a retail store called Raffinee.  She loved needlepointing, reading, and cooking and was one of the more intellectually curious people one could ever meet.  She loved a good caper, and sometimes she made suggestions that prompted questionable and/or illegal behavior.  She hosted a regular round table at her home during the ‘80s and ‘90s where laughs, ideas, coffee and cigarettes could be shared.  She was a mom to many, an enabler to some, and she will be missed greatly.  Succeeding Kay are her brother, Mike Fuchs; husband, Robert; daughter, Christine Harry (Bob); son, Tyler Owen (Lisa), grandsons: Owen and Duncan Harry, Jack, Leo and Henry Owen; granddaughters, Wallis Harry and Daisy Owen; and two dogs, Tucker and Bertie (Albert).

MEMORIAL SERVICE: Friday, September 1st at 1pm at the West Center Chapel.  Memorials can be sent to Holy Name Parish.

    Kay was a fabulous force of nature and a dear friend to my mother. I can’t imagine how much she will be missed by Chris and Ty and her grandchildren. Much love to all the Owens’ and Fuchs’ families.
