Katherine A. Omlor, 73, of Fort Wayne, passed away Thursday, August 10, 2023. Born on October 21, 1949, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Patricia (Cass) Sturm. Katherine was a graduate of Bishop Luers High School in Fort Wayne. She worked at North American Van Lines and also as a buyer for Nobbson Women’s Clothing Store. It was at North American Van Lines where she met her husband, Richard “Dick” Omlor. Together they spent the next 48 years building a life together in Fort Wayne and watching their family grow. Family was most important to Katherine, and being a homemaker was her most important job. When not working, she enjoyed walks with her husband, cooking, traveling, and especially shopping. She loved being a grandmother and cherished spending time with the grandkids, never missing a holiday or one of their events. Katherine will be deeply missed by family and friends alike. Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Kyle (Melissa), Michael (Shauna), and Daniel Omlor; 10 grandchildren; brothers, Frederick (Mary), Paul (Kelly), and John (Laura) Sturm; sisters, Barbara (William) Berghoff and Margaret Sturm; and several nieces and nephews. Katherine was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Omlor; infant daughter, Elizabeth Ann Omlor; her parents; brothers, Michael and Joseph (Allison) Sturm; and sister, Sharon (George) Kaseric.
