Kathryn “Kathy” Ruth Sagen, 60, of Winona, died on Monday, December 31, 2018, at her home of natural causes. She was born on March 8, 1958, to John “Jack” and Kathryn “Kassy” (Witt) Sagen in Winona.

After school she began working at Winona State University in facilities management. She worked there for many years until retiring in 2013. In her free time, she loved to care for her family, animals, and anyone who may have needed it. One of her dear loves though, was watching the Minnesota Vikings as well as many other sports. Kathy had a great sense of humor and was truly a good person.
