She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

Kathy was a real estate agent at Better Homes and Gardens Big Hill for many years and an active member of her community. She loved spending quality time with her sons and grandchildren and would travel far and wide to visit them. She lived for laughter and enjoyed sitting in the sun, gardening and playing games. She was a positive light with an optimism that was contagious. She was a mother and grandmother to so many more than just her own family members.

A memorial service will be held at a later date and a tree will be planted in Kathy’s honor within the Carriage Trace community.
