Kathy was a very loving and devoted wife and mother. She enjoyed taking her many vacations with her family and friends. She was able to travel and see the sights all over the world. She was an avid collector of Fenton Glass.
She will be remembered most as a very determined and strong-willed person. She also was a very caring and generous lady who was there for anybody who needed a helping hand, a listening ear, or shoulder to lean on!
