Serving Whitman County since 1877

Kerry Kay Rodeen

July 16, 1965 - March 8, 2023

Kerry Kay Rodeen was born on July 14, 1965, and lost her brief battle with cancer on March 8, 2023.

In her youth, Kerry was an avid dancer in jazz and tap and spent many summers as a life guard and swim coach. As an adult, Kerry had a fondness for reading and travel.

Kerry graduated from Eastern Washington University in 1987 with a BA in Fashion Merchandising. Many of her working years, however, were spent as an underwriter and compliance manager in the banking industry.

She recently moved back to Eastern Washington to be closer to family and enjoy a slower paced atmosphere. A life taken much too soon, Kerry's humor and quick wit, will be missed by family and friends.

A Memorial Service will be held at Corbeill Funeral Home, 109 N Mill St., in Colfax, Wash., on Friday, March 17th at 11 a.m. Lunch will be served at her favorite Chinese restaurant, Eddy's, following the service.

Kerry had a deep love of animals, especially cats. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial gifts be given to your local animal shelter in her name. Corbeill funeral homes in Colfax is in charge of arrangements. On-line guest book is at
