I have had the pleasure of knowing Kathy, Shelby, and JC for as long as I can remember. I have only fond memories of Kathy. Her kindness and generosity continue to inspire me. But it is the memories of her laughter and humor that I will always treasure the most. When thinking or hearing stories of her, it always brings a smile and warmth to my heart, as I'm sure is true for many others. She will always be missed and memories of her cherished.
Please accept our condolences,
The Rajala and Dodson Family

I always enjoyed chatting with Kathy when I would see her at Rite-Aid or the old L & L in DeWitt. She would always ask about my daughter. And she always remembered her lunch number! That impressed me-her interest in the kids.Kathy will be missed.
