Kathryn “Kathi” (Heintzkill) Peot, 72, Green Bay, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Wednesday, May 18, 2022.

On November 28, 1970, she married Mike Peot at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church.
While raising a family, Kathi worked part-time in the healthcare industry. As the kids got older, she graduated from NWTC with a degree in Accounting. Kathi was proud of her career working for Bay Area Foot Clinic, United Healthcare, and most recently Informed Choice of Green Bay. Through her work, she enjoyed talking to clients and patients and forming friendships with her co-workers. She was known for being friendly, welcoming, and always having fun.
Family and friends were very important to her, and she loved spending time with them, especially the special “dates” she’d plan with each of her grandchildren and being involved in all of their activities.
