    I am so sorry to hear about Kathy. She and I went to the same church for several years (Merriam Christian), and I always loved her sense of humor. I had just gotten back to communicating with her the last two years. So, so sorry. I wish I had known sooner so I could have paid my respects, but I am grateful to the lady who forwarded her obituary.

    Prayers and best wishes to Kim and family.

    Kathy was a great next door neighbor and friend to my mom. We moved next door to Kathy when I was 4. My parents lived there until they both passed in 2006. After mom passed, we moved in for a short time and enjoyed her company. Meet me at the fence was a favorite line of hers! She will be missed. Thoughts and prayers go out to Kim, and the rest of her family.

    Kathy was an amazing grandmother in the neighborhood, I will remember the talks we had and watching her ride around on her lawn mower with those pink earmuffs. You are already missed.

    I will miss her Halloween pranks!! I grew up living next door to Kathy. She has been a wonderful neighbor and friend to my mom, and will be missed greatly.
