In Loving Memory Of Kathy Chamberlain

Our very dear friend, Kathy Chamberlain, passed away suddenly on Sunday, March 13th.  Kathy will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her.

Kathy Chamberlain (02/19/1947 03/13/2011), 64, of Portland passed away March 13, 2011. Born Kathleen Siberz in Oakland, Calif., to Tom and Mary, she was the oldest of nine children. She leaves her mother, Mary; and sisters and brothers, Margi, Patti, Sally, Barb, John, Jim, Claire and Tina. Kathy grew up in Southeast Portland, and attended Ascension Catholic Grade school and Marycrest High School, graduating in 1965. After spending the summer in Alaska, Kathy went to work at Farmers Insurance. That started a full career in the insurance business. Kathy met and married Jan Hansen and they had a wonderful son, Brett. Ten years later, she met and married Steve Chamberlain. They started their own insurance agency, Chamberlain Insurance, in Montavilla. The love of her life was always animals-mainly dogs. She got her first puppy, Penny, at age 5 and has had at least one dog throughout her whole life. She also loved having guinea pigs, hamsters, cats and different kinds of birds. She brought home a lot of strays. She got involved in the dog world and earned many trophies and ribbons for her dogs, competing in obedience and agility. She left Beamer, Katy and Kirby. Kathy will be greatly missed by a variety of friends, including a bunco group started in 1971, and her dog world friends. She leaves behind her son, Brett and his wife, Christina, and granddaughter, Elle Hansen; as well as her Chamberlain grandchildren, Alex, Domineque, Anthony, Chris, Andrew and Spencer.
