Kathryn was truly a kind and loving person. She always came up to me and spoke to me at church. I remember going to see the lights at Chickasha with her and the kids at Trinity. She had a great laugh. She also raised great kids. Helpful and caring . We know that she is now safely in our Fathers' arms. God bless her family during this very sad and trying time.
