Kathy was a wonderful person from a great family. We dated for a while, and in college, I introduced her to her future husband John. I hope she passed peadefully.

What a shock. Some people will always be remembered with joy and Kathy is one of those. She was so kind and always so very friendly. When we last spoke we had some great laughs over families and earlier times. Kathy was one of those people who make an impact on others.

Kathy always seemed like a good person. I also recall her sister Patty. It was always a pleasure to encounter her.

I was extremely shy with girls in high school, but Kathy was one of the exceptions. She was kind and sincere and always a genuinely NICE person and made me feel less self-conscious. When I met her at the 35th reuinon, she was the same delightful person I remembered from years ago. My thoughts go out to her family and friends.

I remember Kathy as a very nice and friendly person to everyone she met.  I was also in "potluck" with her in junior high.  Good times and good friends.  Now three of them have passed away.  I hope that life was good to you, Kathy.  You certainly deserved it.  I also hope that all of these kind words and memories from so many friends will be a comfort to your daughters.

Kathy was a true blessing to know. I confirm all of the wonderful comments that other classmates have made. I loved her smile and joyful attitude. May she rise in glory!  Betty

I remember Kathy as soft spoken, amicable, with a warm personality, beautiful inside & out. With a big smile, she was kind to everyone. Honestly, I really was hoping that Kathy would join all of us at our upcoming Class Reunion. Both Ray & I share with heartfelt feelings, the sincere loss of such a sweet soul.
