Kathy and I met as undergrads at Immaculate Heart College in the late 60s. We were both Biology majors and took a lot of the same classes. She was involved with our wedding and went on to become the Godmother of our second son, Brian. She has visited us everywhere we have lived, she even came to Chicago! We have traveled together to Costa Rica, where we took her zip-lining!! She spent time with us at Huntington Lake, Lake Tahoe and even went on motorcycle rides(still can't believe she fell asleep on the back of the motorcycle). When we moved to Hollister she would come up and the two of us would go shopping and out to lunch. Sometimes my friend Laurel would join us. About 4 years ago I invited her up for Memorial Day weekend and also invited my friend Ron Doll ( who was then widowed). They already knew each other but that weekend was the beginning of a beautiful relationship. They were planning to marry but the cancer got in the way. Nevertheless, Ron was by her side until the end. I know she was very happy with Ron by her side. My family and I miss you Kathy.

My wife and I met Kathy through a mutual friend back in the late 90’s and became friends. When my wife passed in 2015 I was just going through life having been married for 48 years and was waiting to see what was going to happen next I went out a few times with a lady but never really hit it off. When that mutual friend called and said Kathy was coming up from Burbank for the weekend to visit them she asked if I would like to come over and have dinner. So that started every thing (thanks Betty) we went for a ride and talked and got to know each other better and started dating as hard as it is to date someone who lives 300 miles away we became closer and closer. She loved the theater and we would go if I was in Burbank when I was at my house she would go with friends there (thanks Jim) she had a lot of interests and was always ready to do something until one night she ended up in the hospital and had surgery for cancer. She worked hard to stay happy. The doctors did what they could to get rid of the cancer but nothing really worked well. Finally she started having trouble breathing and I think that bothered her a lot more than she let on, finally I think the great someone thought she had suffered enough and with me by her side she sat on the edge of the bed with me and leaned on me and went to sleep. We had been planning to marry in our little church in Tres Pinos (I.C.C.). Kathy did have a way about her that let you know how much she cared about you. I feel very glad I met her, I only wish I had more time with her. I miss her and loved her very much.

I met Kathy way back in 1976, after I returned to Los Angeles from Sonoma County. We worked together on the 3-11 shift at Riverside Hospital in North Hollywood. We wound up being neighbors, while I was in grad school, in a tri-plex that one of the other nurses owned. Over the years, we would often get together for breakfast at Knott's Berry Farm and on holidays when neither of us were celebrating with family or boyfriends, we would go to our favorite Chinese restaurant. Kathy had a series of sweet and funny dogs. One in particular, Molly, was a friendly girl who didn't want visits to end. She would "arrroooo" in protest when she saw you preparing to leave. Kathy loved education. She had degrees in religion, nursing, and library science. She was one of the smartest people I knew. I miss her a lot, but I know she's enjoying being with loved ones in Heaven.
