Kathy brought joy to anyone she came into contact with. She was always laughing and always had a smile on her face. She loved being with her kids, grandkids, and especially her great-grandchildren, whom she adored.

Kathy always made Christmas the best day of the year for her family. She always wanted Christmas to be magical. Her gift wrapping was one-of-a-kind. Kathy also loved to cook for her family and the people in her life. She is most known for her famous potato salad that so many people in the community got to enjoy.
