Kathy enjoyed the beautiful things about life. Flowers, her Sissy, and being a grandma. She had an amazing talent for knitting and crocheting, with many family members and friends having those special items in their homes. She loved to travel, enjoyed shopping trips with the girls, and meeting for coffee each week with her best friends. She loved to be around her grandchildren and bragged about them to anyone that would listen. Most of all, she loved Gary and all their adventures together over the last 50 years.
