Kathy enjoyed many activities including ceramics, puzzles, traveling, vacations, and going to garage sales with her best friend Carol. What Kathy enjoyed the most was her family. She dedicated her life to making sure they were happy and well cared for, and never missed an opportunity to spend time with them. Kathy had a smile that would light up the room. She was beautiful and kind, and she will be missed very much.
A sincere thank you to the Lourdes Hospice staff for their exceptional care and service.
