Katherine Anne Sibert, the spouse of Jerry Leases, died of a sudden illness at SIH Memorial Hospital in Carbondale, Illinois on February 10, 2020. She is survived by her husband Jerry, two sisters, one brother, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Katherine Sibert was born October 18, 1952 in Jacksonville, Illinois to Robert F. and Jessica B. Sibert. She was the third of their four children. She graduated from Jacksonville High School, attended Earlham College in Indiana, and continued taking courses at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. She married Jack Meyer in 1973 and he preceded her in death. She married Jerry Leases in Giant City State Park in 1986 and they lived in the country south of Murphysboro.

Katherine liked to hike, fish, birdwatch and garden in the outdoors. She engaged in many hobbies such as stained glass, sewing, and cooking. She was an avid reader of books and a Scrabble superstar. She and Jerry lived with a constant population of cats and golden retrievers. Her voice was well-known in the area because of the many years she spent reading stories on the radio station WSIU in Carbondale.

Her body will be cremated and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Her family would prefer that in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to in her memory.
