She had an artistic spirit and used her talents to teach mosaic at the local college. She worked with crafts, loved to shop (ALWAYS finding the bargains!), was a hopeless romantic and had a flair for interior design.

Kathy and I were friends at L.J. Intermediate and went on to find new friends once we got to high school. I do remember the day we both found out we made drill team.... we were very excited!! Kathy never met a stranger and was so outgoing. I ran into Kathy a few times after we graduated and she was always her usual bubbly self. She owned an antique store in Freeport during the 90's and I went in there on occasion.  Kathy's daughter took her own life when she was around thirteen and I don't think Kathy ever recovered from that (not that anyone would). I do regret that I didn't take the time to reconnect with Kathy. Maybe it would have made a difference..... 

We had some fun times. Kathy, you will be remembered fondly!
