Katie Stark Obituary, Death Cause – I was shocked and deeply saddened to learn that a good friend of mine had passed away unexpectedly. When we worked together, we made a lot of wonderful memories. You will be sorely missed Katie Stark. You were taken from this world much too soon and had such a bright future ahead of you.
On March 3, 2022, Kate Burns Stark, a native of Houma, Louisiana and a resident there, passed away peacefully and was received into the arms of her Lord and Savior. She has spent her entire life in the city of Houma. The visitation in her honor will take place on the morning of Wednesday, March 9, 2022, at the St. Francis de Sales Cathedral in Houma, Louisiana, commencing at 8:30 A.M. and lasting until the time of the Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 A.M. The interment of Kate will take place in the second cemetery that is located on the grounds of St. Francis de Sales.
Her parents, Robert and Bonnie Burns, as well as her sisters Kelly Burns Thompson (Tommy), Renee Burns Pizzolato (Dr. Greg), and Rebecca Ann Burns, as well as a huge number of nieces and nephews, are among those who are left behind after Kate’s passing. In addition to her parents and a large number of nieces and nephews, Kate is survived by her devoted husband of 13 years, Joe Stark; their children, Valentina Stark and Yvette Stark; and their siblings.
Both of her sets of grandparents—those on her mother’s side, E.J. and Audrey Matherne, and those on her father’s side, Robert and Winona Burns—passed away before she did. Kate was well-known for her outgoing personality in addition to the numerous businesses she owned and was recognized for her substantial involvement in the local community. Her sisters had fond recollections of her from their infancy, when she was their “glitter,” and they were always happy to talk about her.
She never skipped a beat when it came to making sacrifices for the people who were important to her. She was able to strike up a discussion with whomever she wanted, no matter who it was. She made certain that everyone was aware of how brilliant her light was and could see it.
