    My deep sympathy to each of Kathy’s loved ones.
    Our small Class of 1964 was close, drifted apart as we worked and raised families, and has gotten close again with three day annual reunions.

    We are all sorry for your loss. I believe Kathy was one of the most unconditional and genuinely kind persons I’ve ever met. She always spoke, waved or started a friendly conversation. I loved her smile and laugh, and hearing about all her grand children. It’s been a pleasure having her as part of our extended family for all these years, and she will be missed.

    Tom and family (Tom, Jen, Rick), I am so sorry to hear about Kathy. I enjoyed working with Kathy in the deli at Carl’s. We always did our work but we had a lot of fun there. I can tell you that She made the prettiest meat and cheese trays ever! Even when I went to work at Walmart, Kathy would always stop to talk to me. She was a good person and friend and I will miss her. May you and your family be comforted during these difficult days.
