Kathryn Elaine “Kathy” Standy, 76, of Platte, SD passed away Tuesday, March 17, 2020 at Platte Health Center Avera. Funeral Services are 2:30 P.M. Saturday, March 21, 2020 at Mount Funeral Home in Platte. A Committal Service will follow at a later date at Pleasant Lawn Cemetery, Geddes, SD. Visitation will be held at the funeral home from 1:00 P.M. – 2:30 P.M. prior to services on Saturday.

Kathryn Elaine (Arshem) Standy was born on November 14, 1943 to Harold Melvin and Margery Mae (Millar) Arshem in Geddes, SD. She graduated from Geddes High School in 1961 and was united in marriage to Lynn Standy on June 14, 1961 at the Geddes United Methodist Church. Kathy was fortunate to spend many years working in greenhouses surrounded by the flowers she loved. She was employed for 23 years in the Platte Health Center Avera kitchen.

Kathy enjoyed working in her garden, packing flower pot after flower pot full of as many flowers as she could fit, cross stitching, reading, traveling with her daughters, day adventures to greenhouses with friends and shopping.

Grateful for having shared in Kathy’s life, her husband of over 58 years, Lynn Standy of Platte, SD; five children, 11 grandchildren and six great grandchildren: son, Kent Standy of St. John, KS; son, Kory (Tonya) Standy of Platte, SD – Ashley (Aaron) Paulsen - Alexis Stephens and Evan Paulsen, Chandler and Ramsey Standy; daughter, Karla (Doug) Kuiper of Pierre, SD – Kendra Kuiper – Oliver Kuiper, Kayla (Chris) Gukeisen – Owen and Mason Gukeisen; daughter, Kristin (Barry) McLaury of Pierre, SD – Sydney (Tanner) Clausen, Madison and Hudson McLaury; and daughter, Kari (Travis) Olson of Platte, SD – Bailey (Krista) Olson – Alayah Olson, Blaine and Blair Olson; two sisters: Joann (Gene) Jandreau of Rapid City, SD and Donna (Dale) Ringling of Platte, SD; along with nieces, nephews and dear friends.

Kathy was preceded in death by her son, Kurtis Lynn Standy; her parents, Harold and Margery Arshem; and her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Joseph and Mildred Standy.

"All family and friends are more than welcome to attend service, however the Family of Kathy wants everyone to put their own well-being as top priority. The Family completely understands that it is a difficult time with the uncertainty of the spread of the COVID-19 virus and they do not want anyone taking unnecessary risks with their health."

Oh how I loved Kathy. It was so sad to hear she passed away. She was always smiling. She welcomed everyone to her home. She was a great neighbor. The Black Friday shopping trips and babysitting for her—makes me smile. My mind immediately went to Kurt too since we were bus mates and classmates. May she Rest In Peace. My deepest sympathy to the entire family. Colleen Schulte
