She retired in 1988 from Ambrose Printing Company after 31 years of service. Kathleen was an understanding and encouraging mother, poet, kitchen singer, seamstress, artist, and cook who delighted in sharing her talents with family and friends. She modeled patience, kindness, loyalty, and love to all who knew her.

She grew up during the Great Depression and knew how to make extravagance from simplicity and took nothing for granted.

She selflessly cared for both her parents and her husband during the end of their lives and taught the meaning of love, respect, and honor.

She will be forever missed
