    I have fond memories of Kathleen, we were classmates, both at FSHS and Jr. College. She was a beautiful girl both inside and out. She will be missed.

    My deepest sympathy to the family of Kathleen. She will be missed by many. She was a long time friend as we went through all eight grades together at St. Mary’s Catholic school in Fort Scott & then at FSHS. Her battle was long but she now can rest in peace.

    I went to Fort Scott high school with Kathleen, she was always so perky and had the prettiest eyes and eyelashes. God rest her soul and peace be with the family.
