Madison, WI - Kathryn Rae (Genin) Zweifel, age 71, passed away on Monday, January 25, 2021 after a courageous battle with ALS. Kathryn was the beloved wife of Timothy L. Zweifel, loving mother of Brian P. Zweifel, and cherished grandmother of Zachary and Darian Zweifel.

A resident of Madison, WI for most of her life, Kathryn loved to spend her time with family, reading mysteries, and travel. She brought the laughter to our family gatherings, along with some wonderful culinary delights! She was kind and caring. Her brother-in-law stated, “She was the best of all of us, and we all knew it!” Kathryn also enjoyed her travels in the United States and abroad. The Alaskan cruise she shared with her husband Tim and in-laws Kris and Steve was a highlight.

Kathryn, a 1968 graduate of Edgewood High School was employed by the Department of Transportation for eight years, and at Cuna Mutual for twenty years. The majority of her time at Cuna Mutual was as an Underwriter. Before Kathryn became ill, she was the major caregiver for her parents for nine years.

Kathryn is survived by her husband of 48 years, Timothy, her son Brian, grandchildren Zachary and Darian, sister Patricia Conrad, brother Timothy (Kim) Genin, sister-in-law Kristin (Steven) Dohm, brothers-in-law Patrick, Michael, and Christopher Zweifel, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents Raymond and Marian Genin, brother Thomas Genin, parents-in-law Le Roy and Joan Zweifel, sister-in-law Laurel Van Dae, brother-in-law Terrence Zweifel, and nephew Brett Zweifel.

Kathryn would like to thank her Team of Nurses at St. Mary’s Outpatient Center Infusion Therapy, Dr. Fertihk, and Agrace Hospice (especially Lori) for their loving care during her illness and treatment.

A celebration of Kathryn’s life will be held on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at City on a Hill Church, 2924 Fish Hatchery Rd, Fitchburg, WI 53711. The family will receive visitors at 10:00AM, with the service beginning at 11:00AM. Due to COVID restrictions seating capacity is limited to 75 people and we will ask that attendee’s wear masks during our time together.
