Kathleen Meagher passed away Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at her home. She had been in declining health for several years. She was nearly 85 at the time of her death.
Kathleen moved to California in her mid-40s to study at Lone Mountain College where she received her master's degree in psychology in 1977. Her Jungian training started in the late 1980s. Desiring to be closer to nature, she moved to Ashland in the 1990s.
Kathleen was a deep soul, a beloved friend, analyst, mother, and grandmother. She was a superb cook, had a wonderful sense of humor, and possessed a gift for creating circles of friends and community around her. She was a published poet, held a black belt in Aikido, and was a long-time practitioner of Buddhism. Nature was her muse. She hiked, kayaked, snowshoed, and gardened until she was into her late 70s. A wisp of a woman, she could haul her kayak into her car and go off on her own for a day of paddling.
Kathleen is survived by her son, Kevin; daughter-in-law, Kate; and her two grandchildren, Owen and Maya.
A celebration of Kathleen's life will be held beginning at 11 a.m. Sunday, November 5, at her home located at 561 C St., Ashland, OR.
