Kathy attended St. Hedwig throughout grade school and she graduated from Cleveland High School. She always put her family first, spending her early married years taking care of her children, and attending their sports, school, and extracurricular activities throughout their childhood. Being a grandmother to Kyle and Kendall was one of her greatest joys in life. She also worked as a CNA in the home health care field for 25 years, going above and beyond the call of duty in caring for her patients. Frontotemporal dementia made her last few years very challenging, making her passing easier to accept. Kathy loved to have fun and was a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan, especially of Yadier Molina. She was also hard to beat at any board game and was an excellent Scrabble player. Kathy was well known by nearly all of her neighbors and never hesitated to help out anyone in need. She will be missed beyond words.
