Kathy was a devoted mother and loved her role as "Mom Mom" more than anything else. She treasured her grandchildren and embraced every moment with them. She cared deeply for her family, neighbors and friends. She did this not out of obligation, but because of who she was. She was always the first to offer help. Kathy will be deeply missed by all of her family and friends. Her life was a living example of her favorite bible verse, “Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to accept the things I can and Wisdom to know the difference."
