Kitty was grandma to the whole baby group as our kids grew. She was part of so many holidays, birthdays and ordinary times together. Always with a smile Kitty demonstrated a strong love for Linda and Matthew that was beautiful and fierce. Love her energy. Sending hugs to Linda and Matthew.

I will always remember Kitty for her spunk and straight shooting conversations. I trust she’s loving it up there in heaven, golfing with friends and family and laughing up a storm. Praying for strength and peace for you both, Linda and Matt, as you move forward.
Sending our love from Nashville,
Jen, Brian and Drew

This little lady, Kitty, kept an eye on my mom in the last year of her life. She was a compassionate woman and quick-witted. Always was pleasant and had a smile to share. I think of her often and we'll never forget her. My condolences to Linda Lee and Mathew

Kitty was an extraordinary woman I had the good fortune to know through her beloved daughter, Linda. I celebrated many birthdays with her and her extended family members and the one that is most memorable was the 90th! What a fantastic birthday party and she had the time of her life too. Her 93rd was a pottery making class and I will treasure the little heart dotted LOVE ceramic I made in her honor. You will be deeply missed and mourned, Kitty. I love you.
