Kathleen "Kathy" Ann (Bauler) Fields

May 6, 1945 ~ August 12, 2023 (age 78) 78 Years Old


     Kathleen A. Fields, 78, of Gooding, Idaho passed away on August 12, 2023 surrounded by her loving family.

     Kathy, also known lovingly as “Sis”, was born May 6, 1945 to John and Irene Bauler in Waterloo, Iowa. She grew up on the Bauler family farm in Hudson and was always eager to share the wonderful memories of her early life there.

     Kathy was a veteran of the United States Navy and served from 1963-1965 in San Francisco, CA where she met the love of her life, Jack, while stationed at Treasure Island Naval Base. After serving her country she married Jack D. Fields, and eventually settled in Waterloo, Iowa where they raised their five children. 

     The things that Kathy loved and enjoyed the most in life included her cabin in Cascade, ID that she called her “Peace of Heaven”. She spent over 30 years at her cabin creating amazing memories with her children and grandchildren. She also loved fishing, picking huckleberries, having fresh flowers nearby, and listening to her jukebox which holds all of her favorite records. 

     Kathy is survived by her son, Brian Fields, four daughters, Kim (Todd) Kimmes, Kelly (Erwin) Werle, Karen (Kurt) Drew, and Karlene (Greg) Mallory. She is also survived by her grandchildren and great grandchildren, Mercedes (Kyle) Knox: Hayden and Landon: Jasmine (Brandon) Dunagan: Henry and Edward, Taylor and Tanner, Everett and Elliott, Colin, Ian and Henry; and, Matthew and Brett. She is also survived by her siblings: Mae Hoffa, Kenny (Arlene) Bauler, and Bonita Mareska.

     She was preceded in death by her parents: John and Irene Bauler; her siblings Erwin (Dorothy) Bauler, Johnny (Marlus) Bauler, Don (Nancy) Bauler, and Gladys (Ralph) Schmitz. 

     A great way to honor “Sis” would be to go to your favorite Mexican restaurant and order a margarita. Then raise your glass to this wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.

     Donations in Kathy’s name can be made to the Wounded Warrior Project which is an organization that meant a lot to her and to which she made monthly donations to. 

     A memorial service with military honors will be held at the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery on Friday August 18, 2023 at 10:00 AM.

     There will an additional service to be held in Waterloo, IA at a later date.

     Cremation arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel.
