I have so many memories of family get togethers with Kathy. She always gifted my children with the most wonderful books and encouraged their love of reading. Her smile and laugh will be missed. Peace to Raymond, Kristen and Nathan.

We always enjoyed Kathy's company at all the Swann family functions and whenever we were together. And she was always there to dispense medical advice on request. Our own family "Ask a Nurse". She was a good sister-in-law and will be missed.
