Kathleen Covert Obituary

Kathleen “Kate” Covert, 72 of East Butler passed away Monday January 8, 2024 surrounded by family.  She was born to Robert and Ruth Snodgrass on February 28, 1951 in Butler.

Kate was an intelligent, funny, loving woman who was passionate about the people, animals and interests she cared about.  She valued education for herself and her blended family and took pride in all of their accomplishments.  She enjoyed reading, puzzles, music and entertainment through every streaming platform possible. She especially loved the Marvel Universe and Dr. Who.

A 1968 graduate of Butler High School, she had an interest in local theater where she met her first husband, Gary Covert.  She later received her Associates degree from Butler County Community College in computer programming.  In addition to being a full-time mother, over the years she worked several jobs, with her time at the Butler Public Library being her favorite. She was supportive of her family, serving on the board of the East Butler Baseball Association where her children played, as well as volunteering at various school functions as mentor, teacher and chaperone.

She is survived by her partner of 30 years Michael Hetrick, her sons Robert Covert and Joshua Covert, her daughter Emily (Donald) Snow, her bonus daughters Lisa (Nate) Dimit, Lynne (Nick) Day and Lauren (Tom) Bauer, her 13 grandchildren Krista, McGwire, McKenna, Avery, Traynor, Kadiya, Hayden, Cooper, Molly, Ethan, Christopher, Damian and Lilly, and her 2 great-grandchildren Luca and Eden.

She is preceded in death by her parents Robert and Ruth Snodgrass, her sister Patricia McCalman and her niece Miranda Lyon.

A memorial with family and friends will be scheduled at a later date.  Donations in her name can be made to the Butler Area Public Library, 210 North McKean Street, Butler PA 16001.
