Celebration of life to be held for Kathy Bluethman

Whittell athletic director Kathy Bluethman died Wednesday night at home after a two-year battle with breast cancer.

“Tahoe lost its biggest angel,” said Chris McCarthy, Bluethman’s partner.

There will be a celebration of Bluethman’s life and her dedication to Whittell and South Tahoe students held next week. Details to follow.

Bluethman, who also coached at South Tahoe for more than a decade, was one of the biggest advocates and supporters of student-athletics at the South Shore. In lieu of flowers, her friends and family have requested that service attendees make a small donation to the George Whittell athletic department.
