Kaye A. Bohlen passed away peacefully at Odd Fellows Rebekah Home on August 11, 2016 in Mattoon Illinois at the age of 83 with her family by her side.  Kaye was born April 17, 1933 in Bloomington Illinois.  She was the daughter of Elton J. and Hazel Gertrude Smith.  She Married Buddy J. Severns in Covington Indiana on August 25, 1949.  She later remarried Nathaniel Bohlen.

Kaye is survived by her children, Rick Severns (Candy) of Champaign, Debbie Robeck (Johnnie) of Pesotum, Michael Severns (Lori) of Mobile AL, Laura Brooks (Tim) of Pensacola FL, and Vanessa Lehigh of Champaign.   Also surviving are 11 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren.  Kaye is also survived by two brothers Bob Smith (Karen) and Jim Smith (Carole) both of Champaign and two sisters Joyce Vandiver (Bob) of Champaign and Judy Joergens (Eldon) of Effingham.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her husbands, one grandchild and one brother who both died at birth.

Most of Kaye’s life was spent as a homemaker.  She spent several years working for Unit 4 School during the lunch hour which she truly enjoyed.  She was a member of the VFW Women’s Auxiliary, and enjoyed cooking, cross stitching, playing cards and watching her grandchildren.

We would also like to thank Hospice for the wonderful care given to Kaye and the family during her final days.
