Obituary for Katherine "Katie" Ann Flynn

Katherine Ann Flynn, age 43, died suddenly on February 10, 2018. She was the beloved daughter of Mary Ann and Thomas Flynn; dear sister of Julie (Kurt) Hoadley and Ryan Flynn; fond niece and cousin of many.
Katie was born in Detroit, MI, and moved to Chelsea, MI in 1977. She grew up on Cavanaugh Lake and attended Chelsea High School where she was active in ballet, theater, art, student council, and was the Senior Class President. Katie then attended the University of Michigan where she studied Engineering and Political Science, and later landed in New York City which she quickly fell in love with, and lived there for several years. She was there working, 2 buildings away from the 9/11 Twin Towers tragedy, which greatly impacted her views and appreciation of life. After NYC, Katie’s career took her to Chicago where she was working as New Business Associate of Nuveen. Katie was focused, driven, held high standards, and maintained professional integrity.
Katie was a strong, independent women who loved her family and took pride in her home and career. Her passion was running; Chicago Marathon, NYC Marathon, Costa Rica Marathon, Marine Corps Marathon, Detroit Marathon, Chicago Lakefront Ultra-marathon, Dances with Dirt Ultra-marathon, just to name a few. But Katie didn’t run for the medals, she ran because she loved the experience. The passion extended to health and nutrition, and attended Bar Method classes every day at lunch. Katie adored her cats, Prince George and Elizabeth Taylor, and had an overall love for animals. Katie enjoyed travelling with her Mother to many exciting and adventurous places, most recently Hawaii.
To be in her presence was a joy. Everyone who knew her is heart-broken.
