This past November, Kathy and her sisters were able to go back out to Bozeman for a vacation; what a wonderful time they had together.

Kathy loved reading, crafting, puzzles, gardening, being outdoors, and visiting with friends and family. Kathy lived in Sebeka for many years before moving back to Pine River 12 years ago.

Kathy is survived by her sons, Jeremy (Bria), of Minneapolis, Jerome of Minneapolis, and Justin of Georgia; all of whom were her pride and joy.
