Kathy had a bright, beautiful smile and a great sense of humour. She was always very loving, caring, and compassionate. Kathy enjoyed spending time with family and staying connected to those around her. One of her favourite things was going on shopping trips to Grand Forks, which she described as her “happy place”.
Kathy’s family will celebrate her life privately.
