Kathlene Sue (Popert) Weber of Coarsegold, CA, age 74, passed away Saturday, July 1, 2023, in Fresno, CA.

Kathy was born January 17, 1949, in Romulus, Michigan, to Edwin Ernest Popert, Jr. and Vera Elizabeth (Rinke) Popert. The family moved to California in the early 1950s along with her siblings Ronald, Gerry, and Patrice Popert. They eventually settled in Simi Valley, CA.

Kathy graduated Simi Valley High School in 1968 and attended Moorpark Junior College. She spent most of her adult life in Simi Valley until she retired and moved to the Sierra.

Kathy married Forrest “Butch” Burrell-Marlin Updike, Jr. in Simi Valley in October, 1969. They divorced several years later. Kathy married a second time to William “Bill” Julius Weber in the 1980s. They also divorced about a decade later.

Kathy worked for the Simi Valley probation office, Ventura County courthouse, and the remainder of her career as a legal secretary.

Kathy enjoyed playing (and dealing) cards for non-profit events. She enjoyed trips to Las Vegas. She also was surprisingly handy doing her own home remodeling work. She would paint, roof, install her own plumbing and lighting fixtures, and more. She was also an adept seamstress and loved animals, especially her dog “Bella” and many other dogs and cats over the years.

Kathy was strong, determined, and resourceful. She could also be silly and playful. She had a great love for her family, friends, and animals. She also was generous and had a heart of gold. She would help anyone in need to the best of her ability.

Kathy is survived by her daughter Susanne Marie Waite and son Jon Edwin Updike, both of Coarsegold, CA, and Patrice Marie (Popert) Tignac, of Simi Valley, and Gerald Popert of North Carolina; her nieces and nephews Patricia and Anastasia Popert and Robert “Chad” Owens. She is predeceased by her parents.

A graveside service will be held at Oakhill Cemetery in Oakhurst, CA, on Tuesday, July 18, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. led by Pastor Nick Carey of The Grove. Immediately following, a Dutch treat lunch will be held at Ducey’s Grill in Bass Lake.

Kathy will be missed by her family and friends. However, we know she is in Heaven watching over us.
