Kathleen was born on

October 24, 1954 in

Jamestown, ND to Rex

and Barbara Brisben. She

grew up in Jamestown

with her two older broth-

ers Keith and Michael, her

twin sister Karen, and

younger brother Todd.

Kathleen, known by most

as Kap, got her nickname

from her two older broth-

ers, who couldn’t pro-

nounce her name when

they were younger. Kath-

leen got shortened to Kap-

py, and eventually just

Kap, which stuck for the

remainder of her life.

After graduating high

school from Jamestown

High, Kap went on to pur-

sue her Elementary Edu-

cation degree at Valley

City State University.

Upon completion of that

degree, Kap accepted her

first teaching contract in

Harvey, ND (1976) where

she continued to teach the

remainder of her career.

Kap loved teaching so

much, that she taught for

41 years, which was still

not long enough in her

eyes. Her two daughters

and granddaughter fol-

lowed in her footsteps.

After being in Harvey for

a year Kap met her soul-

mate, Dennis Weinmann,

and they were married on

May 5, 1978. They were

happily married for 43

years. Kap and Dennis

have three children: Paula

Mae, Pamela Kay, and

Steven Michael.

Throughout the years

Kap got into coaching

along with her teaching

career. She coached a

variety of sports: basket-

ball, dance team, cheer-

leading, golf and volley-

ball. Kap continued

coaching even after she

retired from teaching, her

love for working with

children brought her so

much joy.

Some of Kap’s favorite

passions in life included

spending time with her

husband and children,

spoiling her grandchil-

dren, golfing, and going to

the movies with her

beloved friends. She also

enjoyed going on adven-

tures such as shopping,

trips or get togethers. Kap

loved life and brought

many smiles to so many

people. Her work ethic,

character, and positivity

was contagious. She was

an inspiration to all and

will be greatly missed.

Kap is survived by: her

husband Dennis; her chil-

dren: Paula of Phoenix,

AZ; Pam of Harvey, ND;

Steven (Brianna) of

Hurdsfield, ND; her eight

grandchildren: Cassie,

Phoebe, Tucker, Addisyn,
