Kate was one of the most wonderful person I ever knew. My son and I attended Church together along with her grandchildren Krissy and Brooke. Oh the memories. She accepted me for who I was and I know she will be missed by her family. Love and prayers all of you. Oh she so did love everyone. God please take care of this special angel.

Catherine was one of the finest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I worked with her for 8 years and she would brighten up each day as I started out the morning discussing our jobs and concerns. She was never one to complain and gave me encouragement to tackle whatever the day would challenge me with. We often discussed the love that God has for us and our need to trust Jesus in all things. I couldn't have asked for a better friend and co-worker. She blessed me every day! What a wonderful, Godly woman this world has lost! I will see her bright smile again one fine day. Well done good and faithful servant; enter into your rest. 💔
