I just heard of Kathryn's death. I'm not sure if I ever met her, but my mom was Bernadine Wells (who just passed on 2/1/13), and she & Kathryn were cousins. My condolences.

Mike, Shelly, Austin and Colt - I'm truly sorry that you have lost someone that was so special in all of your lives.

Mike - your mom sure was a loyal Rockhurst fan - in true Althaber style, and from what Austin has told me, was one great German Cook. I'm sure you'll all feel the void in your lives for a long time.

In sympathy - Rhonda Dehner and family

I consider Kathryn my best friend. She would always watch over me at church when my mom was a Eucharistic minister. She was the best bowler on our team. I will miss her woopies when anyone would get a strike. I am blessed to have her always watch over me.
