Obituary for Kathryn Ann Houston-Wohlfarth
It is with great sadness and broken hearts to announce the loss of Kathryn Ann Houston-Wohlfarth. She slipped away peacefully in her sleep after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. She was born in Plymouth CA on November 10, 1937, to John and Sadie Upton. She was raised on the family ranch with her 3 brothers and sister in Plymouth. There, she met Lee Houston, the love of her life. They married on August 23, 1954. They moved to Dixon and started their family. They raised 3 daughters, always living in the country. The girls raised several horses and a variety of farm animals over the years. Kathy loved and took pride in being a mother and a homemaker. Kathy got her Real Estate license in 1974. Her bright smile, laughter, honesty and positive attitude made her a natural in Real Estate. She was well loved in the Real Estate Industry. Her daughters would tease her about how she was always adopting her young clients. She was well known for the hundreds of calendars she sent out every year with hand written messages. Lee got his real estate license and with his support Kathy went on to get her Broker’s license. With Kathy’s love for people and Lee’s passion for real estate they made a perfect team. They opened up their own Real Estate and Property Management Office in Vacaville in 1983 where they continued to make many lifelong friends in the Solano area. Daughter Sherry came to work for them full time in January of 1987. Sadly, Lee passed away in December 1987. Soon, daughter Sandy joined the successful company full time. Kathy was very proud to be working with her daughters. Lee and Kathy were married an amazing 33 years.
Kathy met her second husband, James Wohlfarth, when he came into Houston Properties looking for a property manager. They started dating and soon became very involved with church. They were happily married for 23 years until his passing in 2014. Kathy retired her office in 2000. She went right to work for Investment Brokers where her two best friends Doris Bremmer and Josie Vierra worked. She was very happy there until she was forced to retire due to illness in 2015. Kathy truly enjoyed 55 years in the Real Estate business. It was her calling.
Kathy loved to spend time with her family and friends. She especially enjoyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved to visit her family in the Shenandoah Valley and the family ranch in Plymouth.
