Kathy died in August 1982, after a fall. She is survived by her parents, Lloyd and Norma Lundgren; a brother, David Lundgren; a sister, Betty Donaldson; her grandparents; and numerous aunts and uncles.

The Kathy Lundgren Memorial Scholarship was established by the Washington Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences to provide financial support for professional improvement opportunities for Association members.

In 1987, the Association expanded the scholarship financial base to include memorials on behalf of those whose lifework was dedicated to family living programs.
