Katy was a dear friend of our Mom~ Elizabeth Massey. We got to know Katy quite well through their friendship. We enjoyed going to the casino, playing cards and visiting with them. Always a good time with lots of belly laughs and memories shared. Katy's smile was as big as her heart. Rest in Peace dear, sweet Katy. You are loved and will be missed. Our sincere condolences to Rick (whom we often found working on a puzzle with his Mom at Lincolnshire when we stopped to visit) and Katy's entire legacy.

Aunt Katie was an older sister to my mother, Barb.
I wish I had visited her more often, as she was always
smiling and honestly interested in each person she was
talking with.
The beautiful picture of her on this site is how I will always
remember her.
Now I am sure she is in heaven with her sister Helen,
and brothers, Dick and Bob.
God Bless
