Kathleen M. Dreffs. 70 of St. Clair Shores.
Kathleen “Kathy” Dreffs (nee Asam), age 70 of Allen Park, passed away peacefully May 30, 2020, with family by her side. Beloved mother of Colleen (Eric) Vojinov of Brownstown and Vincent (Susan) Dreffs of Saint Clair Shores. Loving daughter of the late Richard Asam. Dear sister of Mary Diebel, Geraldine Trager (Ed Gordon), Thomas Asam, Richard Asam, Jim (Lisa) Asam and sister-in-law Katherine Asam. Survived by 5 granddaughters and 2 great-granddaughters. Kathy was preceded in death by her mother Margaret Asam, stepmother Peg Asam and brother Robert Asam.
Kathy grew up in the city of Allen Park and attended Saint Francis Cabrini school through middle school and graduated from Allen Park High School in 1967. She spent her career working as a Social Worker for the State of Michigan where she helped less fortunate families find a better life for themselves.
She was very passionate about going to festivals and spending hours on the dance floor. From Motown music to Mexican Cumbia – she was out on the dance floor cutting the rug. Everybody that ran into her would expect to leave with several flyers in hand showing each festival and every “hot” band highlighted. She was especially fond of the Saint Francis Cabrini festival and showed the utmost excitement whenever the local band 50 Amp Fuse was set to perform.
She worked hard to make sure that her family and friends were happy. We were all fortunate to be beneficiaries of her kind and thoughtful nature. She will be remembered for her fun spirit, love for her family, and passion for music and dancing. She had an unforgettable radiant smile and beautiful blue eyes. She is loved dearly and will be greatly missed by us all.
