Deepest condolences to Kathy's family. She will always be remembered for her kindness and generosity to others. Her compassion and love for family and friends will be missed.

Kathy - you will be missed. Your heart was always open and generous to everyone. I will never forget the friendship you gave to my daughter (and me). You were so beautiful inside and out. Loving thoughts and prayers go to your family as I am sure they will struggle with your loss.

When we were younger we would play together all of us. We played the usual games, hide & seek, tag & red rover , but one of our favorites was playing store. We would find old crates, empty cans , bottles & anything else we could find to make our store & stock it. Then of course everyone wanted to be the store keeper. We used different methods to choose. Kathy would nearly always give it up for someone else if she won.
