Kathy will be remembered as an intelligent, hardworking book worm who in her younger years enjoyed many outdoor activities despite her sun allergy.
With her unique blend of compassion and sarcasm, thoughtfulness and sass, she will be missed by many. Her favorite pastimes were reading and spending time at the local library. Kathy also enjoyed bowling, camping and crocheting. She was a caring mother who achieved most of her goals later in life.
Kathy proved to us all that you are never too old to pursue your dreams. She graduated from CSI in Twin Falls with an associate degree in bookkeeping at age 49.
