Kathleen was born in California to Helen Carney of Salinas. She was raised by Kathleen and William Wood of Milbrae, and graduated from Mills High School in 1965. She attended San Mateo Community College and Fort Lewis College, Durango, Colorado. In 1971 she married Bruce and they had three children, Tarah, Jared, and Seth, and six grandchildren. The couple lived in Europe for nearly ten years, before finally settling in Alta, California. She had one sister, Diane, from NY. Kathleen completed her baccalaureate degree from University of Maryland and did post graduate work at Boston University, Germany. She was always interested in furthering her own education and in sharing her knowledge with others, particularly with teen youth in her church. She loved to cook, and had been fixing dinner for others from the age of 9. She is sorely missed and loved by those who knew her best.
