Heaven received an angel August 13th 2019, with the passing of Katherine Annette Schmaing Pickering. She passed away peacefully next to Family and Friends. Kathy was born in Billings on March 28, 1948, to Frank and LaVetta (Ness) Schmaing. She married the love of her life Gary Pickering and had three children. She worked for the Utah Supreme Court for 10 years and later received her Real Estate license. She enjoyed being “Nanny” most of all. Her amazing smile, gentle heart and kind spirit made all who met her never forget her. She will always be remembered by her contagious laugh and love for all.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 29 years Gary Pickering, daughter Noell Pickering and son Todd Pickering. She is survived by her brothers Pat Schmaing, Micheal Schmaing and sister Sherry Dompier, daughter Kimberly Pickering and her 5 Grandchildren, Gary, James, Ashley, Dalton and Celeste. Her greatest love was her family.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Riverstone Hospice House for their gentle and compassionate care.
Celebration of life will be held at a later date.
