Knew her for many years. Such a beautiful soul. Always had a smile. So glad I was able to see her a few years ago when I came to michigan. Thoughts and prayers to her entire family. She will surely be missed by all.

Dearest Sister-Sue,

It was always a joy to talk to you on your way home from work, etc., so that you would not be alone if you hit another one of those “oh, shits” on your way home, or remember the time you tried to catch my oven on fire!
You will always be my “Special Sister.”

When I think of Kathy, I remember how much she loved her family and her Spartans. I learned a lot from her while at GreenStone. May her memory be eternal.
